Fashion's Power Couples
I thought it would be interesting to start a thread for the major players from the fashion industri that are together. I haven't found a thread like this while searching. I'll start;

- Craig McDean (photographer) and Tabitha Simmons (designer for her own brand and fashion editor for Vogue US)

- David Sims (photographer) and Luella Bartley (designer for Marc by Marc Jacobs)

- Inez van Lamsweerde (photographer) and Vinoodh Matadin (photographer)

- Crace Coddington (fashion editor for Vogue US) and Didier Malige (hair stylist)

And I might be wrong, but I believe Edward Enninful (fashion director, W Magazine, stylist for Gucci, etc) and Cuneyt Akeroglu (photographer) are also together?

I feel like, even though they aren't stylists or designers, Anja Rubik and Sasha Knezevic should be on the list.

^ Agreed. I don't want to see a bunch of model couples listed here, there's a separate thread for that, but with Anja being Editor of 25 magazine I definitely think she earns a place amongst this list.

Lesser, but still dynamic duos:

Sebastian Kim (Photographer) and Maria Munoz (Stylist)

Valentine Fillol-Cordier (Stylist/Art Director) and Jonathan Heaf (British GQ Journalist)

Yes, according to vogue.com, they are a couple.

I'm 99 % sure that Julia Stegner is with Greg Kessler, the backstage photographer.

Here's a bit more on Mert & Marcus. It seems my memory was a bit off.

Quote:
1995

The two meet on a pier in Hastings when Piggott approaches Alas to ask for a light. They become a couple before they begin collaborating on photography. (After their breakup, they will continue to work together as a strictly professional pair.) Mert—who had worked as a stylist but never held a camera—soon begins learning the ropes from Marcus.
vogue.com

So apparantly they were a couple, but are not anymore.

They broke up years ago and I believe they're both married to people who don't work in fashion.

Yeah, no idea tbh. I just read it in this guy's blog when he met Olivier & Willy

Quote:
He (Olivier) introduced me to his partner the celebrated photographer Willy Vanderperre. Willy was camera shy but they were both very friendly people and a lovely couple.
