The world needs some excitement from fashion.
If you look back at the history of creativity in clothes - the French Revolution, the First World War and the Second World War - they have all been creative reinventions, the moment new forms of luxury come into play.
Very skinny women don't look beautiful in clothes.
They say that the best furniture and clothing design from the '50s and '60s is Scandinavian or Milanese.
