I had nearly finished school because I was making effort not that bad on that. But there was a law in Germany after the war. You could not make your final examination before 18, so lots of people who were late because of the way had to do it first.
Yes, it's very strange, for a reason I can not explain, I prefer to write in English and I write better than in French and in German, very strange.
No. I mean those people really did something for designers I don't think department stores can, could or should do still today. Today the world is different so you have to make it differently. There's TV. There's a lot of things.
I wanted to become a cartoon artist, a portrait artist, and an illustrator. This was my first idea.
But if I have a lot of imagination, I could tell myself whatever I wanted, you know. I handle myself quite well. I'm kind of fascist with myself, you know. There's no discussion. There is an order. You follow it.
Beauty is also submitted to the taste of time, so a beautiful woman from the Belle Epoch is not exactly the perfect beauty of today, so beauty is something that changes with time.
Oh yes, I love to do shoes. I'm not a fetishist but I love to do shoes.
I like today and perhaps a little future still, but the past is really something I'm not interested in. So, as far as I'm concerned, I like only the past of things and people I don't know. When I know, I don't care because I knew how it was.
Some people would like me to be round again.
I eat fish, three times a week meat, and if not yogurt, something like this and it rarely continues.
I never had to learn English, French and German because I was brought up as all three languages. I had a private French teacher before I even went to school. That helped a lot.
I'm not a marketing person. I don't ask myself questions. I go by instinct.
The iPod completely changed the way people approach music.
First, don't forget Germany after the war was not the most exciting place. I didn't even know that one could make a living in fashion.
Yes, some people say to me you're too skinny, but never a skinny person says that to me, only people who could lose a few pounds say that.
Yes, and I can sit down on a white piece of paper and work because I don't believe too much into inspiration, only I'm waiting for inspiration, work and then inspiration may come. It's a little too easy to say that.
I have now exactly the same weight I had when I was 18, 20.
Cha Cha, I love. I was a champion in Cha Cha, world. I even remember very well and I do very well the Bolero. I don't know if you remember that one.
It's only I have seen enough of it and the funny thing is now, I know that I'm skinny, because I know there are even smaller clothes in the store. I think I'm big, when I was big, I never thought about it.
If I lose even half a pound, I have two holes here in the face. I think for my bones and my size, I better stay with my 60 kilo.
This kind of pastry, yes. This is what my favorite thing, what I really like. Also, extremely fine French cooking was never the thing I preferred.
My favorite kitchen was the Japanese and the Italian kitchen.
I never - you know also one of the things that would save me for a man my age, it was not that easy to lose that much weight and fall down and look like something draped.
No, and I never, ever eat in between the meals. I control it well enough and with no pills, and I sleep seven hours a night. I go to bed. I fall asleep, and I wake up seven hours later, and this is the most important.
If there's something dangerous, sauces are dangerous for the body.
