My dream was always to be a composer, but fashion came very easily.
Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.
My favorite designer is Christian Lacroix, not just because his clothes are amazing and I love them, but because he's so nice. When I did his fashion show, he was the first one to arrive there and he helped everyone.
I have dreamed in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.
My fortune somewhat resembled that of a person who should entertain an idea of committing suicide, and, altogether beyond his hopes, meet with the good hap to be murdered.
I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.
The actual tragedies of life bear no relation to one's preconceived ideas. In the event, one is always bewildered by their simplicity, their grandeur of design, and by that element of the bizarre which seems inherent in them.
I don't design clothes, I design dreams.
The level of detail and craft is something that's inscribed within the original design concept. And so when I begin to draw, I know what kind of detailing I want the building to have.

If I'd had some set idea of a finish line, don't you think I would have crossed it years ago?
There has been a change in men's attitudes toward their clothes. Men are more aware of fashion; they're not afraid of it.
That's one thing about fashion that you really shouldn't be-you can't be melancholy in fashion because people don't respond to it.
The makers of entertainment must try, in our field, to be honest and grown-up.
Film is a very, very powerful medium. It can either confirm the idea that things are wonderful the way they are, or it can reinforce the conception that things can be changed.
It is not of the essence of mathematics to be conversant with the ideas of number and quantity.
It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.
What is a television apparatus to man, who has only to shut his eyes to see the most inaccessible regions of the seen and the never seen, who has only to imagine in order to pierce through walls and cause all the planetary Baghdads of his dreams to rise from the dust.
Take, if you must, this little bag of dreams, Unloose the cord, and they will wrap you round.
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed possible.
The most pitiful among men is he who turns his dreams into silver and gold.
A designer knows he has arrived at perfection not when there is no longer anything to add but when there is no longer anything to take away.
Find yourself and express yourself in your own particular way. Express your love openly. Life is nothing but a dream, and if you create your life with love, your dream becomes a masterpiece of art.
I've kind of fashioned my life after a Slinky. Bend me in a million shapes, and eventually I'll spring back to what I originally was.
I have no idea how I'm perceived in America because I don't live the reality of America.
