We live in a dark and romantic and quite tragic world.
I’m very much down to earth, just not this earth.
In a meat-eating world, wearing leather for shoes and even clothes, the discussion of fur is childish.
We need houses as we need clothes, architecture stimulates fashion. It’s like hunger and thirst — you need them both.
Fashion and music are the same, because music express its period too.
When people want to be liked for what they did, they should stop.
Don’t overact the story of your name. Overact the story of your work.
Stuff your brain with knowledge.
People who do a job that claims to be creative have to be alone to recharge their batteries. You can’t live 24 hours a day in the spotlight and remain creative. For people like me, solitude is a victory.
Fashion is a language that creates itself in clothes to interpret reality.

Reinvent new combinations of what you already own. Improvise. Become more creative. Not because you have to, but because you want to. Evolution is the secret for the next step.
Luxury is the ease of a t-shirt in a very expensive dress.
The secret to modeling is not being perfect. What one needs is a face that people can identify in a second. You have to be given what’s needed by nature, and what’s needed is to bring something new.
Fashion is about going ahead, not about memory.
I do my job like I breathe — so if I can’t breathe I’m in trouble.
Fashion is about two things: the evolution and the opposite.

She had huge tits and a huge black bra, and she said to me, ‘It’s impolite; remove your glasses.’ I said, ‘Do I ask you to remove your bra?
The elegance is as physical, as moral quality that has nothing common with the clothing. You can see a countrywoman more elegant than one so called elegant woman.
