The show was titled Le Meunier (translation: ‘the miller’) and the invitation arrived with a loaf of bread, and the promise of breakfast.

There were no seats, no light change, and no starting pistol. As we ate, models snaked their way through the crowd before assembling round a table to eat their share.
