From London to Paris, when creatives connect | Cuts for Him

I really have to be honest here and say Paris has never before appealed to me like it does for so many people. I like the city and its food and architecture but something always seems to be missing. I simply can’t lay a finger on why I feel that way. I have been to Paris so many times that I have lost count but just kept having the feeling of not enjoying it as I should. I joked the last time I was there that for some bizarre reason, every time I go to Paris, something unexpected happens that ruins my trip.

So when I told my blogger friend Lamich Kirabo that I was visiting Paris, she was absolutely sure I would love it this time around. Not the least because we were planning a collaboration.

A bit about Lamich

Lamich was born and raised in Uganda and created her platform called Third Local in 2015. According to Lamich, she recognized a gap in the African market which fails to provides quality content and information about fashion within the continent.

Currently based in Paris, France Lamich “works to provide authentic and conscious content for the young individual across the world seeking a less harsh more purposeful fashion story“. With a huge list of top brands to her creative CV, Lamich has enough experience and talent to plug that gap in Africa and globally.

Two days prior to our shoot, the weather in Paris was the worst it could have been for a photo shoot as it was rainy and cold. This could have literally sealed my lack of appreciation for Paris. However, the sun came out in all its glory on the day of our shoot and the vibe was perfect. I and a photographer friend Kevin hunged around Notre Dame where Lamich joined us a few minutes later. We had so much fun shooting this collaboration after which we had lunch and just hung out. So yeah, Paris this time around was great. I have also come to realize that my taste for Paris is an acquired one. It gets better with every visit and this one has been one of the best. Looking forward to my next visit.
