I always loved aesthetics. Not particularly fashion, but an idea of beauty. If you wear clothes that don’t suit you, you’re a fashion victim. You have to wear clothes that make you look better. I adore the challenge of creating truly modern clothes, where a woman’s personality and sense of self are revealed. I want people to see the dress, but focus on the woman. I sometimes feel that a pattern is almost a fashion statement in itself. It’s hard to balance everything. It’s always challenging.
Delete the negative; accentuate the positive! Those fashion designers are just crazy; but aren’t we all? It’s a philosophy of life. A practice. If you do this, something will change, what will change is that you will change, your life will change, and if you can change you, you can perhaps change the world. It pains me physically to see a woman victimized, rendered pathetic, by fashion. I don’t like trends. They tend to make everybody look the same.
