A terrible underachiever.
The best ideas I've had in my life are those I saw in my sleep, in the early morning.
Even a golden iPad (that exists) will never give the same pleasure to the reader as a beautifully bound book. Expensive books enrich us.
The world is not there to please you. It's up to you to please the world.
With expensive fashion, the inside should be as perfect as the outside.
Nonchalance in couture is very important, because couture without nonchalance is just the drag queen attitude of women of an era past.
Fashion keeps me designing: the love of change, the idea that the next one will be the right one, the nonstop dialogue.
I have no idea of the future -- never, ever. That's what I like about fashion. It's paradise now.
I only go to places if I have a professional reason. I'm not a tourist.
Designers must be both conscious and unconscious at the same time. Clear thinking at the wrong moment can stifle inspiration and talent.
My greatest problem in life is my indifference to the outside world.
Fashion does not have to prove that it is serious. It is the proof that intelligent frivolity can be something creative and positive.
I love advertisements. I'm fascinated by intelligent, brilliant ads: finding slogans that can tell a story in thirty seconds.
I'm never content with what I do. I live in a sort of permanent dissatisfaction. I think that's the secret to doing things well.
I like imagination -- and the way I think things could be, had been, or should be -- better than reality.
If you want respect for your past, it means that you have a problem with your present and even more with your future.
Fashion's life is short. It's six months, six months, six months. It's not something you do for a great future.
