Every day I’m thinking about change. I never like to think that I design for a particular person. I design for the woman I wanted to be, the woman I used to be, and – to some degree – the woman I’m still a little piece of. Age and size are only numbers. It’s the attitude you bring to clothes that make the difference. Age and size are only numbers. It’s the attitude you bring to clothes that make the difference. It is important to be chic.
It’s really easy to get colors right. It’s really hard to get black – and neutrals – right. Black is certainly a color but it’s also an illusion. Vanity is the healthiest thing in life. First I made a dress because I was pregnant and I wanted to be the most beautiful pregnant woman. Then I made a sweater because I wanted to have one that wasn’t like anyone else’s. I have an obsession with details and pattern. My job is to bring out in people what they wouldn’t dare do themselves.

I love to design things that people can actually buy. I’m staggered by what a boot costs today. Men don’t want another man to look at their woman because they don’t know how to handle it. I am what I am. Before I was not so proud to make fashion. My family thought fashion wasn’t very interesting. So I hid that. I always loved aesthetics. Not particularly fashion, but an idea of beauty. I’m an accomplice to helping women get what they want.
Fashion is always of the time in which you live. It is not something standing alone. But the grand problem, the most important problem, is to rejuvenate women. To make women look young. Then their outlook changes. They feel more joyous. Fashion fades, only style remains the same. In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different. Women are women, and hurray for that. I’ve always thought of the T-shirt as the Alpha and Omega of the fashion alphabet.
Fashion is to please your eye. Shapes and proportions are for your intellect. My dresses are very reasonably priced, for dresses that are cut on the body. I am always locked in my design studio. Success isn't about the end result, it's about what you learn along the way. Give me time and I'll give you a revolution.
