What I hate is nasty, ugly people. Every day I’m thinking about change. I’m used to always deciding everything myself. It’s a blessing, but also a terrible defect. 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. Delete the negative; accentuate the positive!
I am never satisfied with myself and that is what keeps me going – I have no post-satisfaction. It should be natural, and that’s how I like women to look. I like them to feel comfortable and look organic. Attitude is everything. Fashions fade, style is eternal. I’m used to always deciding everything myself. It’s a blessing, but also a terrible defect.
Fashion never stops. There is always the new project, the new opportunity. When I was young, I lived like an old woman, and when I got old, I had to live like a young person. If you cut a painter’s hands off, he’d still feel the urge to pick up a brush. Jeans represent democracy in fashion. I can design a collection in a day and I always do, cause I’ve always got a load of Italians on my back, moaning that it’s late.
