Alexander McQueen

‘ British fashion is self -confident and fearless. It refuses to bow to commerce,thus generating a constant flow of new ideas whilst drawing in British heritage’.

‘Clothes and jewellery should be startling, individual. When you see a woman in my clothes, you want to know more about them. To me, that is what distinguishes good designers from bad designers.’

Calvin Klein

“Fashion is about change and, for me, the philosophy is always the same … that the clothes have to be really modern and make women look
really beautiful. But, it’s fun to keep changing and to change the silhouettes, to change the fabrics and to change the colour.
Colour this fall is really going to change too, because there is colour.”
“There has been a change in men’s attitudes toward their clothes. Men are more aware of fashion; they’re not afraid of it.”

Christian Dior

“Zest is the secret of all beauty. There is no beauty that is attractive without zest.”

Coco Chanel

“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.”
“”The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good, on you!”
“I don’t do fashion, I am fashion. Fashion is architecture. It is a matter of proportions”
“Fashion is made to become unfashionable.” “Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.”

Donatella Versace

“Fashion is all about happiness. It’s fun. It’s important. But it’s not medicine.”

Donna Karan

“Today, fashion is really about sensuality-how a woman feels on the inside.In the ’80s women used suits with exaggerated shoulders andwaists to make a strong impression.
Women are now more comfortable with themselves and their bodies-they no longer feel the need to hide behind their clothes.”

Gianni Versace

“My dream was always to be a composer, but fashion came very easily.”
“That is the key of this collection, being yourself. Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.”
“You dress elegant women. You dress sophisticated women. I dress sluts.”

Giorgio Armani

“I design for real people. I think of our customers all the time. There is no virtue whatsoever in creating clothing or accessories that is not practical.”
“The goal I seek is to have people refine their style through my clothing without having them become victims of  fashion.”

Hubert de Givenchy

“The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress”

Isaac Mizrahi

“I don’t like people to feel completely described by the clothes they wear of mine. I want them to feel that they’re describing themselves.”

Issey Miyake

“From the beginning I thought about working with the body in movement, the space between the body and clothes.I wanted the clothes to move when people moved. The clothes are also for people to dance or laugh.”
“Design is not for philosophy it’s for life.”

Jean-Paul Gaultier

“Elegance is a question of personality, more than one’s clothing.”

John Galliano

“I’m an accomplice to helping women get what they want.”

Karl Lagerfeld

“Chanel is composed of only a few elements, white camellias, quilted bags and Austrian doorman’s  jackets,pearls, chains, shoes with black toes. I use these elements like notes to play with.”

Marc Jacobs

“I love to take things that are every day and comforting and make them into the most luxurious things in the world.”

Oscar de la Renta

“We’re dealing with sophisticated customers. What’s most important to these women is individuality.
I have to create things she’ll want to wear, no matter who she is.”

Pierre Cardin

The dress is a vase which the body follows. My clothes are like modules in which bodies move.”

Ralph Lauren.

“I don’t design clothes, I design dreams.”

Sophia Loren

“A woman’s dress should be like a barbed wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view.”

Stella McCartney

“I can honestly say this industry hasn’t made me neurotic about my looks, except maybe my weight. I hope my clothes kind of reflect that. They’re meant to make you feel good”.

Tom Ford

“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.”

Tommy Hilfiger

“You want to look fashionable and put-together, not like you hit every sale rack this season.”

Vera Wang

“A woman is never sexier than when she is comfortable in her clothes. “
“Fashion offers no greater challenge than finding what works for night without looking like you are wearing a costume.

Vivienne Westwood

“My son has followed fashion since he was a punk. He and I agree that fashion is about sex.”

“It is not possible for a man to be elegant without a touch of femininity.”

“Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well.”

Yves Saint Laurent

“Fashions fade – style is eternal “
“A designer who is not also a couturier, who hasn’t learned the most refined mysteries of physically creating his models, is like a sculptor who gives his drawings to another man, an artisan, to accomplish.”
