“A few seasons ago I decided to have a screen in my studio, so when I did the fittings I would look at the screen. I’m really scared of bloggers, and I know this is how they judge me. But I realized that whatever looks good on screen doesn’t always feel good on the body. So I decided to leave the computer — sorry to the lady from Google [Marissa Mayer, who was in attendance] — and I went back to trust my eyes. And that’s what I do in fashion.”

“We have a lot of interns, and I can tell you. Tip for the interns: Please take notice. We do notice what you wear… There’s some girls who come, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, who’s that girl? Anybody can go and buy a Gucci outfit or a Prada outfit. What impresses me is when they have style and I’m like, ‘Oh, what are they wearing”
