The important thing is to take your time and not get stressed. Sometimes the simplest things are the most profound. You cannot be creative with people around you. I truly believe that philanthropy and commerce can work together. Grunge is a hippied romantic version of punk.
Fashion is made to become unfashionable. Design is a series of creative choices - it's a collaborative effort, an evolutionary process. You choose your fabrics depending upon what you want to say, then you work with mills to get those fabrics. Through the process, you realize what you want it to be. Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury. When I was young, I lived like an old woman, and when I got old, I had to live like a young person. Fashion is to please your eye. Shapes and proportions are for your intellect.
Grunge is a hippied romantic version of punk. 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. It is difficult to talk about fashion in the abstract, without a human body before my eyes, without drawings, without a choice of fabric - without a practical or visual reality. Doing collections, doing fashion is like a non-stop dialogue. I would like to be a one-man multinational fashion phenomenon.
