Fashion is a playground up until a certain age. But then you have to find your own signature and your own style.
Never forget that what becomes timeless was once truly new.
You never do things thinking you will make a big statement. It just happens sometimes and you are lucky.
I'd rather work with someone who likes what I do than create something for the red carpet that won't make me happy.
What I find most interesting in fashion is that it has to reflect our time. You have to witness your own moment.
Your priority has to be the creativity - and build a brand. That's what everybody did - Balenciaga, Dior, Saint Laurent. That's the smart thing to do.
I remember Grace (Coddington) looking at me and said, 'Can you do something?' and I was like, 'OK, how long do you give me?' and she said 'Half an hour?', I said 'Forty-five minutes?'
You need something that puts a little distance between what you really are and what you want to show; it's a shield, a protection.
I grew up with the idea that once you found yourself with your clothes, why change?
For a long time, my uniform consisted of a trench coat, wide flared jeans, and little bottines - I copied a pair that my mother had in this theater place. I had, like, 10 pairs of the same shoes.
More than anything, I'm designing for a woman of today. I want to be a witness of my time.
I put pressure on myself to propose something new - I think it's the minimum that you can do as a fashion designer.
I do love science-fiction and horror movies.
