My husband had to work for a half day last Saturday, his office is not far from Harajuku area, so Sidra and me went along and we had a little walk by ourselves in Omotesando Hills.
Suddenly there was a guy came to us and told me that he wanted to photograph Sidra for a street style section in a kid’s fashion magazine. I asked Sidra about it and he agreed, so we went with him to meet the photographer. Standing beside the photographer was a familiar face, it was the editor of Sesame magazine that we met last year for the fashion shoot in Tottori!
He seemed surprised too to see us and immediately remember ‘Shidora’, the Indonesian boy. He was also surprised to know that now Sidra can speak Japanese. The editor gave me some form to fill and his assistant took notes of what Sidra was wearing. After the snapshot was taken, he told me that the picture would be published in their January edition and he would send me the magazine.
Then we resumed our walk, (me) feeling a bit, uh, nostalgic to see these fashion stylists working on a weekend day. A memory of my old life not so long time ago.
