Attitude is everything. It is important to be chic. I like the body. I like to design everything to do with the body. I am no longer concerned with sensation and innovation, but with the perfection of my style. Age is something only in your head or a stereotype. Age means nothing when you are passionate about something.
I considered myself to be very stupid. It was my ambition to understand the world I live in. I am not interested in the past, except as the road to the future. I don’t care about money. I really don’t care. I just want to do what I do. Comfort is very important to me. I think people live better in big houses and in big clothes. Grunge is a hippied romantic version of punk.
I am like a freight train. Working on the details, twisting them and playing with them over the years, but always staying on the same track. If you cut a painter’s hands off, he’d still feel the urge to pick up a brush. I can design a collection in a day and I always do, cause I’ve always my back.
I didn’t consider myself a fashion designer at all at the time of punk. I was just using fashion as a way to express my resistance and to be rebellious. I came from the country, and by the time I got to London, I considered myself to be very stupid. It was my ambition to understand the world I live in.
