Money doesn’t buy elegance. You can take an inexpensive sheath, add a pretty scarf, gray shoes, and a wonderful bag, and it will always be elegant. I don’t really know how to do casual clothes. Jeans represent democracy in fashion. Women are more sure of themselves today. They don’t have to emulate the way men dress. People said making clothes inside out was not proper. I disagreed, because clothes that are inside out are beautiful.
I love my beauty. It’s not my fault. I like to be real. I don’t like things to be staged or fussy. I like the irony in my work. You have to stay true to your heritage; that’s what your brand is about. I believe in comfort. If you don’t feel comfortable in your clothes, it’s hard to think of anything else.
Everything I do is a matter of heart, body and soul. Fashion fades, only style remains the same. Don’t dress to kill, dress to survive. I adore the challenge of creating truly modern clothes, where a woman’s personality and sense of self are revealed. I want people to see the dress, but focus on the woman. I am no longer concerned with sensation and innovation, but with the perfection of my style.
