It pains me physically to see a woman victimized, rendered pathetic, by fashion. I never like to think that I design for a particular person. I design for the woman I wanted to be, the woman I used to be, and – to some degree – the woman I’m still a little piece of. 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 feel that things happen for a reason and open up new opportunities. I have my favourite fashion decade, yes, yes, yes: ’60s. It was a sort of little revolution; the clothes were amazing but not too exaggerated.
I want to thank all the women who have worn my clothes, the famous and the unknown, who have been so faithful to me and given me so much joy. Beauty is perfect in its imperfections, so you just have to go with the imperfections. Attention to detail is of utmost importance when you want to look good. It’s really easy to get colors right.
