tom ford : so i just can’t do those small shows anymore, however i also learned that i really missed doing really big shows because i’m a bit of a showman and i like to push myself and give myself challenges and as we say in english, jump through a hoop or jump through a flaming hoop and so i enjoyed the adrenaline rush and designing for a runway show is very different than designing just a showroom collection.
geraldo da conceicao : i don’t know if i’ve renewed anything, i’ve simply highlighted things that rykiel has worked on from the beginning: the slender silhouette, knitwear, soft textures.
goga ashkenazi : you don’t have to look masculine to be strong, you can be very elegantly feminine and lucid and the drapes of our vionnet classic dna are there and it’s very feminine.
