Thought for the week: We must become the change we want to see.


Fashion is more usually a gentle progression of revisited ideas. Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity. Only great minds can afford a simple style.

In difficult times, fashion is always outrageous. Fashions fade, but style is eternal. Zest is the secret of all beauty. There is no beauty that is attractive without zest. A designer is only as good as the ones who wear their clothes.
