Schiaparelli by André Durst (1936)

André Durst was a French photographer and heir to Marseilles soap. A close friend of the Noailles and the sponsor of Salvador Dali and Elsa Schiaparelli, the French photographer caught the eye of Vogue and soon proposed his exquisite and original images to the magazine. His work caught the attention of Condé Nast, who signed him as a Vogue photographer. He eventually became French Vogue’s primary photographer.

His mentor was photographer George Hoyningen-Huené.
