My mother said that we're so lucky to be women. It's not that men are weak. Men are men. We're two completely different animals.
I was a very young girl and I got into fashion very much by accident, wanting to be independent. What was wonderful was that while I was learning and discovering - learning about the work, discovering myself as a woman - I was allowing other women to feel the same way.
I've always been inspired by women, and my mission was to inspire women. I always wanted to become a certain kind of woman, and I became that woman through fashion. It was a dialogue. I would see that the wrap dress made those women confident, and made them act with confidence.
I communicate mostly via e-mail and receive hundreds of e-mails a day.
The important thing is to take your time and not get stressed.
I travel in so many different ways; I travel high, I rough it... it all depends on who I travel with.
