About Me

img03
Elegance isn’t solely defined by what you wear. It’s how you carry yourself, how you speak, what you read. Luxury will be always around, no matter what happens in the world. I’m a fashion designer and people think, what do I know? I couldn’t love a woman who inspired me to be totally disinterested. If I fell in love with a woman for an artistic reason, or from the point of view of my work, I think it would rob her of something. Attention to detail is of utmost importance when you want to look good.

Blockquotes
Single line blockquote:

Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

Multi line blockquote with a cite reference:

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.

Steve Jobs – Apple Worldwide Developers’ Conference, 1997

Design is a series of creative choices – it’s a collaborative effort, an evolutionary process. You choose your fabrics depending upon what you want to say, then you work with mills to get those fabrics. Through the process, you realize what you want it to be. I like the body. I like to design everything to do with the body. Fashion fosters cliches of beauty, but I want to tear them apart. The difference between style and fashion is quality. I have an obsession with details and pattern.

You can’t just buy things for the label – it’s ridiculous. I like to be real. I don’t like things to be staged or fussy. I am always locked in my design studio. I sometimes feel that a pattern is almost a fashion statement in itself. It’s hard to balance everything. It’s always challenging.

I would like the people that buy my clothes to understand that for me it’s one small piece of art. People said making clothes inside out was not proper. I disagreed, because clothes that are inside out are as beautiful as a cathedral. Fashion moves so quickly that, unless you have a strong point of view, you can lose integrity. You can only go forward by making mistakes. I’m a fashion designer and people think, what do I know?

Don’t dress to kill, dress to survive. I am not interested in the past, except as the road to the future. You cannot be creative with people around you. Women are women, and hurray for that. Design and style should work toward making you look good and feel good without a lot of effort so you can get on with the things that matter.
