When I design a wedding dress with a bustle, it has to be one the bride can dance in. I love the idea that something is practical and still looks great.
I make things of my own that aren't that glam, but I'm not known for that, which has always been a bit of a frustration for me.
My evening really begins when I take a long, hot bath. I light a candle, and I turn on the news and try to catch up. It's when I can breathe from the day to the night, and that means a lot to me.
A woman is never sexier than when she is comfortable in her clothes.
I am not the sort of woman who would wear high heels with a bathing suit. Let's get that straight right now.
The key is falling in love with something, anything. If your heart's attached to it, then your mind will be attached to it.
Even the most understated ceremony involves a certain respect for ritual and pageantry. No one plays more of a significant role than the bride's attendants.
I've been designing since I was 8. I started sketching dresses I could wear when skating. I was always involved in all aspects of skating, not just the technique, the choreography, the music, but the visual aspects, too - what I should wear.
All I did my first year at Vogue was Xerox.
Success isn't about the end result, it's about what you learn along the way.
Figure skating has been a great influence for me. I took dance at the School of American Ballet, which helped my own skating. And whether you are a skater or a dancer, without sounding narcissistic, it is all about looking in the mirror.
To me, eyewear goes way beyond being a prescription. It's like makeup. It's the most incredible accessory. The shape of a frame or the color of lenses can change your whole appearance.
When you have a passion for something then you tend not only to be better at it, but you work harder at it too.
I love to design things that people can actually buy. I'm staggered by what a boot costs today.
I see myself as a true modernist. Even when I do a traditional gown, I give it a modern twist. I go to the past for research. I need to know what came before so I can break the rules.
