I want to be a major force.
I started cooking out of middle school depression.
I love creative people.
I have a garden, and I collect different heirloom seeds from different neighbors.
There is no reason for me to show my collection in New York, because it’s not about craft and technique there.
New York ladies all look immaculate.
Listen, I’m not a rich kid. I’m a cultured kid; I’m very rich in culture.
There’s not one major greatest influence on my career. It would be film and great artists and great imagineers – Jim Henson, Walt Disney, Charlie Chaplin, people who understand the joy of the imagination.
I have so many fashion mistakes, but that’s part of being in fashion. I think the people that you see make the most mistakes are usually the best dressers.
People who devote themselves to a life of style are admirable.
I am a compulsive and concise shopper.
I am totally unattached to material items.
I don’t believe in one ideal beauty.
The biggest thing politically within fashion is that the clothing should be displayed on different body shapes.
Everybody wants to be a star right now, to be heard, to have a voice, so you have to give the confidence for people to have that ability – and give them the wardrobe to become a star.
