Fashion quotes

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman. Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance. Fashion changes, but style endures. A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future.
Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. Where should one use perfume?" a young woman asked. "Wherever one wants to be kissed". I don't do fashion, I AM fashion. I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny. I wanted to give a woman comfortable clothes that would flow with her body. A woman is closest to being naked when she is well-dressed. Fashion has two purposes: comfort and love. Beauty comes when fashion succeeds. Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions. There is nothing more comfortable than a caterpillar and nothing more made for love than a butterfly. We need dresses that crawl and dresses that fly. Fashion is at once a captapillar and a butterfly, caterpillar by day, butterfly by night. I imposed black; it still going strong today, for black wipes out everything else around. Fashion is made to become unfashionable. Innovation! One cannot be forever innovating. I want to create classics. A fashion that does not reach the streets is not a fashion. I love luxury. And luxury lies not in richness and ornateness but in the absence of vulgarity. Vulgarity is the ugliest word in our language. I stay in the game to fight it. A woman with good shoes i never ugly! It is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory of fashion that heralds your arrival and prolongs your departure. Hard times arouse an instinctive desire for authenticity. One can get used to ugliness, but never to negligence. Nothing goes out of fashion sooner than a long dress with a very low neck. Fashion has become a joke. The designers have forgotten that there are women inside the dresses. Most women dress for men and want to be admired. But they must also be able to move, to get into a car without bursting their seams! Clothes must have a natural shape. Why am I so determined to put the shoulder where it belongs? Women have very round shoulders that push forward slightly; this touches me and I say: ‘One must not hide that!’ Then someone tells you: ‘The shoulder is on the back’. I have never seen women with shoulders on their backs.
Deep in every heart slumbers a dream, and the couturier knows it: every woman is a princess. On vacation, you can wear all the colorful and casual clothing that you like, but you must always be elegant. Finally, everything that has been part of my life, whether I wanted it to or not, has expressed itself in my dresses. Bright reds - scarlet, pillar-box red, crimson or cherry - are very cheerful and youthful. There is certainly a red for everyone. I wanted to be considered a good craftsman. I wanted my dresses to be constructed like buildings, molded to the curves of the female form, stylizing its shape.
