On Style

“Style is something so different in everyone. But a style is something that you do that is totally different from the other or something that you’re wearing that is the same as the other person but it looks different on you. It’s a special touch. Some people have it and some people cannot.”

On Fashion

“Fashion is only making dresses to make women look beautiful. We’re not inventing anything new.”

On Dressing

“It’s about finding the style for the right figure or the right age. Sometimes you see women that don’t realize that age is changing your style, and they don’t change.”
