There are so many things to take into account - your ambition, your ego, the press, the consumers. You can never be sure that you'll be on top of the pile again.

In practice, I've had a presence in China since 1998 with my commercial spaces and shops.

You can think you've made it and yet the next day's press will always be waiting for you, the public will always ask more of you. In short, you can always do better!

It is difficult to talk about fashion in the abstract, without a human body before my eyes, without drawings, without a choice of fabric - without a practical or visual reality.

I was an observer. I liked to listen rather than openly express myself. This trait is something that I've retained over the years.

I wanted to dress the woman who lives and works, not the woman in a painting.

Why do I put myself in a position to be cast aside or not considered as I would like to? Because I am a creative mind, because I still aspire to be one.

I've always thought of the T-shirt as the Alpha and Omega of the fashion alphabet.
