Soutomi is an interesting lady of contrasts. She’s a fashionista but she’s a comfort junkie. She rarely wears heels. She’s “walked” in a few runway shows but does so to help her friend Mita promote her collection. She’s done a couple photo shoots but she has no desire to pursue modeling in her spare time. Instead she wants sexy photos to look at when she’s 80!
Here’s a link to the Lotus Eye fashion show I photographed in February.
