Famous quotes containing the word designer:

    Mother, Father,
    so young, so hot, so jazzy,
    so like Zelda and Scott

    A designer who is not also a couturier, who hasn’t learned the most refined mysteries of physically creating his models, is like a sculptor who gives his drawings to another man, an artisan, to accomplish. For him the truncated process of creating will always be an interrupted act of love, and his style will bear the shame of it, the impoverishment.
