Every time that I wanted to give up, if I saw an interesting textile, print what ever, suddenly I would see a collection.
I always say the next big thing will happen in unexpected places - up and coming cities that aren't necessarily boom markets.
Longing and desire goes further than instant satisfaction. That's human nature.
No one has ever found a solution for not doing a fashion show.
I love going to flea markets especially when I am traveling, because I love seeing the stuff of other cultures, handicrafts and things with historical content.
I think you have to be in the right place at the right time. And understand that and know when it is your time and how you react to it and how you respond to it.
To me, fashion is like a mirror. It's a reflection of the times. And if it doesn't reflect the times, it's not fashion. Because people aren't gonna be wearing it.
Every collection that I work on, I always think, Is this cool enough to wear to a concert?
I have a big responsibility to my licenses. All my licenses draw from and take ideas from the runway.
I think that fashion has become such a big business and with globalization we are on new territory at this point. We are not just designing for a country we are designing for a world now.
A piece of fabric can get me going.
At the point when I wanted to become a designer, I didn't think about, 'Oh, but I'm a woman,' just like didn't think about like, well, 'I'm Chinese' or that 'I'm in Michigan.' You know, none of those things were obstacles to me. I just had this idea that this is what I had to do.
I think whenever people talk about the 'Anna Sui woman,' they're talking about someone that's probably kind of more downtown, and there's always like this ambiguity: Is she a good girl, or a bad girl?
Creating a book and creating a collection involve a lot of editing.
I just love the whole idea of conversational prints.
