Memorable Quotes:

To me, fashion is ceaselessly fascinating because it is an expression of self.

I think possibly what people working for one hate the most is indecision. Even if I’m completely unsure, I’ll pretend I know exactly what I’m talking about and make a decision. The most important thing I can do is try and make myself very clearly understood.
