Is there any other way to live a life?

The important part is a creative endeavor begins with an act of concentrated seeing, focus looking.

Without asking the most fundamental questions of existence, one will not be able to create – and this is true in all fields.

One settles on questions that are personally meaningful, and then answer them. There are pleasures to be found in life, work, and all processes. The joy is in those moments when the group meshes perfectly, it is in the way we offer each other encouragement, in the fact that we cause each other pain, in our struggle to find a way through.

The classics stand the test of time.

The tailored collar was a most elegant means of creating an opening for the head. The Tailoring Collar, e.g. Lapel and the Nape, is indeed a perfected monument in the history of fashion. For a natural relationship between the body and the fabric.

Everything starts from embracing life itself. Is there any other way to live a life?

Techniques comes later. Everything begins with an appreciation of shape and volumes. One must be struck by the beauty of something, and only then may one ponder how to arrange the fabric, whether to use darts or hems.

True avant-garde sensibility is one that acknowledges reality while simultaneously providing a glimpse of the solutions and surprises that tomorrow will surely bring.

Museums are even worse. No designer really wants his clothes displayed in one. They are where fashion goes to die. It is the same with retrospectives – I will have no part of them, either.

It is meaningless to construct something and place it as an ornament. Things must be alive, they must be vibrant and in motion.

The structural traditional structural beauty is just a symbolic projection of a self-centered ego of men.

The fact of the matter is that making clothes requires one to continually express oneself aggressively, and if that means that disappointing sides of the self are sometimes revealed in the process, so be it.

It is always best to add something playful to any polished coordinated look in man’s clothing. Attractive, classy, and chic alone result in something dull.

Rules are made to be broken, they were made to be ignored. In contrast, the tenets and discipline one sets for oneself are to be defended with one’s very life.

Gown

“Ah like gowns

that are tight enough

to show I’m a woman

and loose enough to

show I’m a lady.”

What else might you have been if not a shoe maker?
I really believe that you can (within reason) choose to be whatever you want to be. In fact you choose to be what you are right now. The secret is making the choice that serves the grandest vision of yourself. Anything less is coping out a little. So I’m happy with my choice and I still have a long way to go at being me.

A person hears only what they understand.

“A really great talent finds its happiness in execution.”

“The intelligent man finds everything ridiculous, the sensible man hardly anything.”

“If any man wishes to write a clear style, let him first be clear in his thoughts.”

“Correction does much, but encouragement does more.”

Fact

“In the space between the cradle and the grave, why be afraid?

Death is certain… and you don’t have anything to lose.

You come without anything. One day what you have is bound to disappear.”
