Fashion should be fun. It shouldn’t be labelled intellectual. Brides today are increasingly sensitive to the tastes, feelings and finances of their attendants. I have my permanent muses and my muses of the moment. I love the 2000s because everyone started to love haute couture. Men have got more of a discerning eye. They appreciate cut and details, things that aren’t so obvious. They like things that have cachet and gentlemanliness.

Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity. Age and size are only numbers. It’s the attitude you bring to clothes that make the difference. Jeans represent democracy in fashion. I like the body. I like to design everything to do with the body. Success isn’t about the end result, it’s about what you learn along the way.

I’d like to believe that the women who wear my clothes are not dressing for other people, that they’re wearing what they like and what suits them. It’s not a status thing. Go to a place where you’re not going to be stressed, because a honeymoon itself can be a stressful thing. I would like the people that buy my clothes to understand that for me it’s one small piece of art. Being one step ahead of a fashion trend is not so important to me. What matters is to always forge ahead. It pains me physically to see a woman victimized, rendered pathetic, by fashion.

I always thought what you wore underneath was as important as what you wear on top. I have a fantastic relationship with money. I use it to buy my freedom. I have a fantastic relationship with money. I use it to buy my freedom. The key to my collections is sensuality. I am not interested in shock tactics. I just want to make beautiful clothes.
