explore express experience

Today I bring you quotes about fashion by fashion designers.  All included express my philosophy about fashion, design and dressing.

• Clothes are a good ad for living another life.
Stefano Gabbana

• 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.
Gianni Versace

• A fashion that does not reach the streets is not a fashion.
Coco Chanel

• I design for real people. I think of our customers all the time. There is no virtue whatsoever in creating clothing or accessories that are not practical.
Giorgio Armani

• I’ve always been about style for people, not ‘You’re going to wear this outfit,’… It was the way you put yourself together and the imagination, not buying this number off the rack, but the way you wear it.
Ralph Lauren

• Design is not for philosophy – it’s for life.
Issey Miyake

• We must never confuse elegance with snobbery.
Yves Saint Laurent

• I love that in the clothes, the body is what stands up, the person.
Calvin Klein

• Who can live without some black clothes.
Karl Lagerfeld

• Elegance is innate. It has nothing to do with being well dressed. Elegance is refusal.
Diana Vreeland

• I think fashion is about suspense and surprise and fantasy. It’s not about rules.
Wolfgang Joop

• 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.
Coco Chanel

• Style is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma. Fashion is something that comes after style.
John Fairchild

• Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.
Coco Chanel

• Fashion is a tool … to compete in life outside the home. People like you better, without knowing why, because people always react well to a person they like the looks of.
Mary Quant

• Fashion is not frivolous. It is a part of being alive today.
Mary Quant
