Inspiration: Quotes!

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)

Yes, sir!

  15. Love the Galliano quote! People really don't dress up anymore. I live near DC where there is a very specific style formula that is acceptable and even if you wear something that would be considered boring and conservative in most of Europe, here people look at you in a confused way if you aren't dressed that way. So it becomes easier to dress that way and then no one wants to be the one stand out and no one does. It's a horrible horrible cycle.
