Zitat des Tages von Gianni Versace:
I am not interested in the past, except as the road to the future.
I want to be the joy to people through my work.
The environment was so strong, so dramatic. Tragedy is all over Calabria; it's in the air. All this corresponds to my temperament.
My dream was always to be a composer, but fashion came very easily.
It is nice to have valid competition; it pushes you to do better.
I like the body. I like to design everything to do with the body.
I want always to be positive.
I want to see my niece and nephew grow up, to see their children... I get crazy at the idea that a time will come when I won't see Daniel and Allegra anymore.
I never fall down. I always fight.
I learned to work with my mother, who had an haute-couture business.
Comfort is very important to me. I think people live better in big houses and in big clothes.
Women are more sure of themselves today. They don't have to emulate the way men dress.
I think it's the responsibility of a designer to try to break rules and barriers.
I don't license everywhere. I take care of my name.
Designing came to me. I didn't have to move.
That is the key of this collection, being yourself. 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.
In the past, people were born royal. Nowadays, royalty comes from what you do.
I'm a little like Marco Polo, going around and mixing cultures.
Even Michelangelo got paid for doing the Sistine Chapel. To those artists who say they're doing it for the love of art, I say: Get real.
For me, the summer will be pure gray - mother-of-pearl gray, very pale gray. To me, this is the big statement for summer. Then we have light blue, light turquoise, lots of pink.
I am a typical Italian; I love the clan. But I don't think about getting married.
I have a fantastic relationship with money. I use it to buy my freedom.
I want to be a designer for my time.
I really want to make clothes that are feminine and help women look beautiful.
I liked women as a shape to dress.
