It' s clear by now that I'm deeply intrigued by the styling and editing work of the driven young Sonny Groo. Hailing from Amsterdam, Sonny is one of those rare individuals whose passion for the industry transcends the common hunt for fame and money. You get the sense that the boy is doing what he does out of a sense of destiny. We had a late breakfast on the day after the final show of Paris Fashion Week where Sonny brought me a copy of the gorgeous first print issue of Mykromag. It was like being handed this beautifully crafted black box filled with images by new photographers shooting pieces by new designers on new and sometimes never before seen models. I loved the audacity and the elegance of the book and treasured it. During our conversation, tears came to Sonny's eyes when he tried to express how important it was for him to see and create beautiful images . We were in this shockingly modern organic food cafe on rue des Pyramides as the last of the visiting fashionistas came sprinting down rue Saint Honore. I remembered thinking...now here is the extreme degree of passion you need for success in fashion.
