GET SPRING/SUMMER READY NOW
A woman is never sexier than when she is comfortable in her clothes. Comfort is very important to me. I think people live better in big houses and in big clothes. I didn't want to be a fashion designer, and for a good half of my career I didn't like it. I always wanted to do other things. I am never satisfied with myself and that is what keeps me going - I have no post-satisfaction. Elegance isn't solely defined by what you wear. It's how you carry yourself, how you speak, what you read.
I'm a fashion designer and people think, what do I know? Fashion can be this mysterious thing that you can't explain. I have my permanent muses and my muses of the moment. An evening dress that reveals a woman's ankles while walking is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.
Women are women, and hurray for that. Attitude is everything. I wanted to dress the woman who lives and works, not the woman in a painting. I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity - all I hope for in my clothes. Age and size are only numbers. It's the attitude you bring to clothes that make the difference.
