I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it. I’d like to believe that the women who wear my clothes are not dressing for other people, that they’re wearing what they like and what suits them.

It’s not a status thing. It pains me physically to see a woman victimized, rendered pathetic, by fashion. I believe that my clothes can give people a better image of themselves – that it can increase their feelings of confidence and happiness. Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only.

FASHION IS IN THE SKY, IN THE STREET, FASHION HAS TO DO WITH IDEAS, THE WAY WE LIVE, WHAT IS HAPPENING.

Vanity is the healthiest thing in life. My aim is to make the poor look rich and the rich look poor. I am no longer concerned with sensation and innovation, but with the perfection of my style.
