My customers are successful workingwomen.
Online media is increasingly influential in fashion.
I was surrounded by sisters. My childhood was all women.
Although I have no plans to tweet, I am fascinated by developments on the Internet.
If you want to establish an international presence you can't do so from New York. You need the consecration of Paris.
Every season I am inspired by women.
I do not have one theme for each season, I just try to make beautiful clothes all year round.
Regardless of how good or bad a collection might be, it's a letdown after the show is over. It's done. Something you've worked on for months is just over.
We're dealing with sophisticated customers. What's most important to these women is individuality. I have to create things she'll want to wear, no matter who she is.
I wanted this, I wanted to do this, but my work is me, and it has to be right.
I don't really know how to do casual clothes.
I have this complex that if I walk into a place wearing a colorful shirt someone will stop me and say, 'I'm sorry, but the Latin band comes through the other door.'
Gardening is how I relax. It's another form of creating and playing with colors.
I am not interested in shock tactics. I just want to make beautiful clothes.
Now is the most exciting time in fashion. Women are controlling their destiny now, the consumer is more knowledgeable, and I have to be better every single day.
I'm a very restless person. I'm always doing something. The creative process never stops.
There is always an emotional element to anything that you make.
I want to make clothes that people will wear, not styles that will make a big splash on the runway.
I like light, color, luminosity. I like things full of color and vibrant.
Fashion is about dressing according to what's fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.
The great thing about fashion is that it always looks forward.
The qualities I most admire in women are confidence and kindness.
I always say: To be well dressed you must be well naked.
We live in an era of globalization and the era of the woman. Never in the history of the world have women been more in control of their destiny.
