Hello there! And for those of you who are new here: yay, welcome!
I thought that, because we are right in the middle of the week, a huge dose of inspiration would be great! However, the catch is that this week's inspiration comes as quotes... about fashion, of course!
So I've picked up a few that are not so well-known, hope you enjoy them!
+++++"Dressing is a way of life." (Yves Saint Laurent)
+++++"About half my designs are controlled fantasy, 15 percent are total madness and the rest are bread-and-butter designs." (Manolo Blahnik)
+++++"The goal I seek is to have people refine their style through my clothing without having them become victims of fashion." (Giorgio Armani)
+++++"I've always thought of the T-shirt as the Alpha and Omega of the fashion alphabet." (Giorgio Armani)
+++++"As a fashion designer, I was always aware that I was not an artist, because I was creating something that was made to be sold, marketed, used, and ultimately discarded." (Tom Ford)
+++++"Dressing up. People just don't do it anymore. We have to change that." (John Galliano)
+++++"I'd like to believe that the women who wear my clothes are not dressing for other people, that they're wearing what they like and what suits them. It's not a status thing." (Marc Jacobs)
+++++"I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern - wearing head-to-toe designer has become a bit passe. It's a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It's all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together." (Alexander McQueen)
+++++"Even though it was the 70s, we found old stocks of clothes that had never been worn from the 50s and took them apart. I started to teach myself how to make clothes from that kind of formula." (Vivienne Westwood)
+++++"You cannot fake chic but you can be chic and fake fur." (Karl Lagerfeld)
+++++"Red is the ultimate cure for sadness." (Bill Blass)
My favorite is the one below (even though is not about fashion, it comes quite close):
"Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working." (Pablo Picasso)
