Black is certainly a color but it’s also an illusion.
The only way to do something in depth is to work hard. Sometimes the simplest things are the most profound. I get ideas about what’s essential when packing my suitcase. My customers are successful workingwomen. 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. An evening dress that reveals a woman’s ankles while walking is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. It’s hard to balance everything. It’s always challenging. I love to design things that people can actually buy. I’m staggered by what a boot costs today. I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern, very now – no one wears head-to-toe designer anymore.
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. I love things that age well – things that don’t date, that stand the test of time and that become living examples of the absolute best. Brides today are increasingly sensitive to the tastes, feelings and finances of their attendants. There are always protests, whether you do something good or bad. Even if you do something beneficial, people say you do it because it’s advertising. I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern, very now – no one wears head-to-toe designer anymore.
