What people hate the most is indecision. Even if I’m completely unsure, I’ll pretend I know exactly what I’m talking about and make a decision.
On the whole, people who say demeaning things about our world, I think it’s because they feel in some way excluded, or not part of the “cool group.”
I worked for Harper’s Bazaar. They fired me. I recommend that you all get fired; it’s a great learning experience.
People respond well to those that are sure of what they want.
Create your own style. Let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.
I’m very driven by what I do. I am certainly very competitive. I like people who represent the best at what they do. If that turns you into a perfectionist then maybe I am.
In the end I do respond to my own instincts. Sometimes they’re successful, and obviously sometimes they’re not.
I surround myself with a talented group of people that are opinionated and interesting. I try to remain very open to what others have to say.
It’s all about timing. If it’s too soon, no one understands. If it’s too late, everyone’s forgotten.
You can’t really worry too much about what the competition is doing or what other people in your field are doing. It has to be a true vision.
I’m very good at delegating. People work much better when they have a real sense of responsibility. But at the same time, I don’t like surprises.
Fashion goes in only one direction – forward – and I am a firm believer in thinking that way too.
I never think of myself as a powerful person.
