magazine editor isis colombe combreas







Without a doubt, one of my favourite magazines is Milk. It's French - "le magazine de mode enfantine". It has the most inspired, fantastical photo shoots. Truly worth buying just for them (most of the mag is also translated into English, too). It's so good, in fact, that I'd recommend even if you DON'T have children. Meet Isis - the founder and editor.

Which five words best describe you? Chatterbox. Headstrong. Sophisticated. Impatient. Creative.
What was your first job and what path have you taken since? My very first job as a student was baby sitting, then waitress, like everybody. My first training was assistant of a fashion director in a women's magazine. For my first real job I was the assistant of the director of a Quebec movie festival. I worked for a long time as a TV presentator, then I created MilK, my magazine.
What’s the best lesson you’ve learnt along the way? Try to be unique.
What’s your proudest career achievement? MilK, MilKmagazine.net, MilK decoration, MilK collection, MilK...
What’s been your best decision? Yesterday. I bought a cat called Jack for my children.
What inspires you? Ancient times.
What are you passionate about? Style and style.
Which person, living or dead, would you most like to meet? I would have loved to have dinner with Kazuo Ohno, a great dancer of Butoh dance. He died very recently.
What dream do you still want to fulfil? Tonnes but they're all secret, shh...
What are you reading? ONfray. A french philosopher that is shooting at Freud's theories.

Thank you for the interview. I have been inspired by Milk Magazine since I first picked up a copy last year.
