Even today, I am still very child-like while designing. It's a bit like Christmas - each of your designs you create is like unravelling your presents.
I have no problem with the idea of comfort, but it is not an important thing aesthetically. If you look at a shoe and immediately say it looks very comfortable, in terms of design, it is not going to excite me. Of course, I am not putting nails in my shoes to ensure everybody is in pain, but a heel is not a pair of slippers and never will be.
I'm really not a fascist. Everyone wears what they feel great in, or comfortable with. It's a beautiful day, you have an armless shirt: it goes with flip-flops.
I love David Lynch's 'Mulholland Drive;' such a wonderful movie.
