I have to say that my husband and my children are so tough, there really is no space for pretension.
The process of a date, I think, is terrible. Horrible. Because everything is banal and predicted.
I’ve always been shy.
I do what I think is right.
Before I had kids, I was out every night of the week.
One’s life and passion may be elsewhere, but New York is where you prove if what you think in theory makes sense in life.
I was a communist, but being left-wing was fashionable. I was no different from thousands of middle-class kids.
When I design and wonder what the point is, I think of someone having a bad time in their life. Maybe they are sad and they wake up and put on something I have made and it makes them feel just a bit better. So, in that sense, fashion is a little help in the life of a person. But only a little.
What interests me most is when a work of art is no longer just an object, but also touches reality and life.
Talking about the democratization of fashion is just one of the many trite things people say these days.
My parents were truly severe.
I would say there is no Prada woman. I’m interested in women in general. I don’t have any kind of preference.
In Europe the world of fashion is too conservative, very eighties.
I am interested in communicating with the world by selling to many people.
Everybody knows that I don’t have a muse. I’m not interested in that.
