Royalty is completely different than celebrity. Royalty has a magic all its own.
A person carries off the hat. Hats are about emotion. It is all about how it makes you feel.
How a hat makes you feel is what a hat is all about.
In Rome, I particularly love the history, churches, sculptures and architecture and the fact that you can walk along a tiny cobbled street and turn the corner to find the Trevi Fountain. London is evocative of other eras and full of history.
Everybody loves things that sparkle.
I must point out - Sarah Jessica Parker is not a diva - she's one of these pop culture characters that everybody likes.
Hats are radical; only people that wear hats understand that.
I believe in originality, primarily. However, it's important to know what there has been before to aim in that direction. Art history informs us. It informs our mind. I like to look at books, exhibitions, paintings, as a computer, subconsciously taking on information.
I believe that I am a hat designer, not a milliner.
Hats make people feel good, and that's the point of them.
Wearing a hat is fun; people have a good time when they're wearing a hat.
The classic hat image was during the Forties and Fifties, and Elizabeth Taylor was the epitome of that; she was the ultimate celebrity of excess and glamour, and she worked major sun hats.
There's a technicality to designing and wearing hats. A hat is balancing the proportions of your face; it's like architecture or mathematics.
Elegance is all in the mind of the wearer.
The personality of the wearer and the hat makes the hat.
