I still appreciate individuality. Style is much more interesting than fashion, really. It is difficult to talk about fashion in the abstract, without a human body before my eyes, without drawings, without a choice of fabric – without a practical or visual reality. Money is the most corrosive aspect of life today because it means that all attention to detail is forgotten. My aim is to make the poor look rich and the rich look poor. 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 rejeuvenate women. To make women look young. Then their outlook changes. They feel more joyous.
My shows are about the complete woman who swallows it all. It’s a question of survival. Brides today are increasingly sensitive to the tastes, feelings and finances of their attendants. Insecurity is a waste of time. If I had the power, I would ban leggings. The only way to do something in depth is to work hard.
