Zitat des Tages von Phoebe Philo:
When I was deciding whether or not to take the job at Celine, I didn't really look at the history of the house. I had other offers to come back, but they weren't right, or they wouldn't let me stay in London, which was non-negotiable.
My mother used to dress me in quite good-taste clothes, and I really wanted things that were sparkly and spangly and trashy and nasty. I don't know if I ever chose fashion; it was just there in me.
I try not to intellectualise what I do.
Time is my biggest luxury. Finding time to do things outside of fashion, which I think for a designer is incredibly important.
I was very, very eager to work. It's just the way I am.
I wouldn't want to even try to begin to describe our customer, as I think she likes a certain amount of anonymity. I try to offer clothes that allow that. I myself do not like being defined so readily, so I imagine that she is similar?
I'm not interested in clothes that just convey a certain look or fashion. Clothes for me have always been a form of self-expression.
It's been a bit tricky trying to establish a 'designer' profile and not a designer-cum-girl-around-town.
I'm just not very interested in decoration.
My relationship with fashion is playful and very expressive of what I'm feeling at the time.
Because I'm a woman, and I'm petite and blonde, you wouldn't believe how often I'm asked to model the clothes.
I have a fantastic team, and it's much easier having children, because that creates a natural limit.
