How did you hear about Jessica and her fashion show coming to New York City? Did you know her prior to her coming to the New York area?
David Cotteblanche: I heard about Jessica from my friend Mikael Vojinovic. He is a top photographer in France. I started to work with him doing photoshoot in New York City 20 years ago. He connected me with Jessica when he was shooting her in Venice. I never worked with her before. Mikael advised me to go with her project.
