Over period of three years I sneaked into the most expensive designer boutiques in Paris, London and New York, setting a mini-studio the dressing rooms and taking self-portraits wearing their most amazing dresses. I brought crazy props too, like pieces of furniture, 5-feet long guerrilla paw, potted plants, backdrops, pets, food etc... If the store discovered me they would either kick me out with an embarrassing scene or even call the Police. Once I was taken to the Police Station and after they took my fingers\ prints I explain everything and the Police Offices asked me to email them the pictures so they could show it to their wives!

Kids from a kindergarten school in Paris participated in the Inside Out project! Their parents played with my portrait as well. I loved their creativity! Thanks to Annie and Karine, the creative school teachers!
