Everyone can do simple things to make a difference, and every little bit really does count.
I am a fashion designer. I'm not an environmentalist. When I get up in the morning, number one I'm a mother and a wife, and number two I design clothes. So the main thing I need to do is create, hopefully, exquisitely beautiful, desirable objects for my customer.
Sometimes I wish I were less sensible.
You feel like everyone hates you if you've got a good life, now I feel maybe it's allowed because I've had my share of sadness.
I was brought up to understand that we are all here on planet earth together.
I didn't want to be thirtysomething and not know what I was going to do. I was quite afraid of that, there were quite a lot of aimless kids around, in that 'other' side of my life, who didn't really know what to do because they always had a bank balance to fall back on and they were quite lost.
For me, singing is the most natural thing in the world. I've grown up with it and I know I've got that gift.
My biggest surprises in my everyday job have to do with the challenges of trying to be slightly more responsible as a brand.
There's no excuse for fur in this day and age.
People think I'm strong, but actually I wanted to crawl away. I thought, I'm going to live in the country with my horse and I'll get a nine-to-five; I don't need this.
I literally have meetings at eight o'clock in the morning, and I finish at nine o'clock at night. It sounds pathetic, but I don't even have time to go shopping.
I don't know, maybe I'm overly paranoid that they're going to be spoiled, but I want to keep them going as kids for as long as I can. I want to keep them innocent and free.
I think the moment that I'm very proud of is building a business without using animals. And, hopefully, changing people's perception of how you can do luxury fashion.
It's immoral that people make money out of writing crap, but I try not to obsess about it. I don't want to spend my life being angry.
I don't plan massively in advance.
