Be not afraid of being called un-fashionable.
The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live. It is about the realities of what makes for an attractive, civilized, meaningful environment, not about fashion or what’s in or what’s out. This is not an easy job.
Fashion is inspired by youth and nostalgia and draws inspiration from the best of the past.
Initially the fashion world was more interested in me than the music world, which was strange when I first started singing.
Consciously, distinctly, resolutely, habitually, we need to give ourselves, our business, our interests, our families, our affections, into the Spirit’s hands, to lead and fashion us as He will. When we work with the current of that Divine will, all is vital, efficient, fruitful.
It’s easy to take the shortcut and use animal skins. But I think animal skins look tired. They’re not very innovative. They’re old-fashioned. And great fashion should be something new.
Being in the world of fashion you have to be very self-absorbed, and you are surrounded by people who are very self-absorbed.
In one universe, they are gorgeous, straight-teethed, long-legged, wrapped in designer fashions, and given sports cars on their sixteenth birthdays. Teacher smile at them and grade them on the curve. They know the first names of the staff. They are the Pride of the Trojans. Oops – I mean Pride of the Blue Devils. In Universe #2, they throw parties wild enough to attract college students. They worship the stink of Eau de Jocque. They rent beach houses in Cancún during Spring Break and get group-rate abortions before prom.
I am convinced of the validity of contradiction. There are many worlds. Each is true, at its time, in its own fashion
I think that’s something that investment banks have worried about for a long time and are continuing to worry about, but it’s not an easy solution when you have lots of people betting the company’s money, how do you really allocate those risks? How do you make sure that the people that take the risks are feeling the risks in an appropriate kind of fashion?
We are persons of quality, I assure you, and women of fashion, and come to see and to be seen.
So fashion was, in a way, an accident. But this world opens you up to a lot of different avenues that interested me. I loved the idea of working in different countries. And I loved the idea of construction and working with imagery. But, yes, I fell into fashion a bit by mistake.
The British Fashion Awards are also very important because it’s my hometown. But it’s really a recognition of my team, and those awards give me an opportunity to thank them in a formal way. You and I have worked together enough to know that it really isn’t about two people. It’s a whole team. And so it’s great to acknowledge that you never do anything alone.
I love fashion, I love architecture and I love image making so if I can, I would put all these three in one pot.
A kiss! When all is said, what is a kiss? An oath of allegiance taken in closer proximity, a promise more precise, a seal on a confession, a rose-red dot upon the letter i in loving; a secret which elects the mouth for ear; an instant of eternity murmuring like a bee; balmy communion with a flavor of flowers; a fashion of inhaling each other’s hearts, and of tasting, on the brink of the lips, each other’s soul!
I sing, not to hear the echo repeat, a shade fainter, my song! I think of light and not of glory! Singing is my fashion of waging war and bearing witness. And if my song is the proudest of songs, it is that I sing clearly to make the day rise clear!
I do love a bit of fashion. I grew up around a lot of it as my mum and dad had clothing stores so my mum was always designing a lot, and I definitely had that as an influence.
I love Thandie Newton. I love her fashion sense as she is just really classic.
I never wanted to get into high end in Colombia – the percentage of people who can afford it is very small, and they can shop abroad anyway. It’s just not what I had in mind. I wanted to bring international fashion to as many people here as possible, who don’t usually get exposed to such styles.
I don’t look so closely at women’s fashion, but from the 20th century on, people have had the freedom to express themselves and their individualities, and fashion is one of the most fundamental ways in which they do this, men and women are equally able to express themselves.
When you’re a well-known fashion photographer, modeling agencies call constantly. They’ll say, This great girl is in town for three days. She’s excellent, she’s exciting. You’ve got to see her… So I decided to really have a look at them. I opened up my studio and said, Send anyone… And I became quite addicted to the whole thing. I was curious to see how many girls would come. I couldn’t believe that there really were so many around.
I don’t care about fashion at all. And I know it’s kind of a dodgy thing to be a fashion photographer, a kind of pathetic occupation, but I like it, even though I question it.
You’re never too old to play. You’re only too old for low-rise jeans.
I consider that sex is part of life as much as architecture, fashion, art or food. Sex is life, simple. And I refuse to consider that sex should be hidden. When you hide sex, problems start because sex becomes dangerous.
The reason I introduced sex – or erotic imagery – to Purple is not only because I don’t want sex to be hidden but because also I consider it as an extension of fashion, the way the body expresses seduction and beauty. It’s very artificial to put sex in a ghetto. Plus, sex sells.
Ironically, style doesn’t come even closely related to fashion. It’s got nothing to do [with clothes].
I never really had much of an interest in fashion.
They [people] mistake fashion for style.
The public, obviously, they takes things in a very simplest fashion and so they should. That’s why we have such wonderful television.
In order to look special wearing the chancy unique; it must be worn with your persona, and if the two don’t blend, then the look becomes pear-shaped.
Oooh, fashion, we are the goon squad and were coming to town, beep beep.
I thought that I could do some kind of vehicle involving rock musicals and presenting rock and characters and storyline in a completely different fashion.
It was only when I began modeling at 18 that I really began enjoying fashion and reading any fashion magazine I could get my hands on, and developing a profound respect for designers, fashion and how to wear it.
You know, you’ve got to be careful with how you educate your kids in rock’n’roll fashion.
When you look on one of your contemporary ‘good copies’ of historical remains, ask yourself the question: Not what style, but in what civilization is this building? And the absurdity, vulgarity, anachronism and solecism of the modern structure will be revealed to you in a most startling fashion.
