Just because you’re a luxury brand doesn’t mean you have to have an attitude.
I don’t want to be a great chief executive without being a great mum and a great wife.

I am not in favour of quotas. Just put the best person into the job. It is not about gender; it is about experience, leadership and vision.
The thing is, I don’t want to be sold to when I walk into a store. I want to be welcomed.
Everyone in the world should have a trench coat, and there should be a trench coat for everyone in the world. It does not matter your age; it doesn’t matter your gender.
