I DEFINITELY BELIEVE THAT ALL FINE TYPES OF ART HAS TO BE POLITICAL, IN A SENSE. I NEVER CONSIDERED MY DESIGN AND COLLECTIONS AS BEING ”FASHION” OR ”TREND”, BUT AS STATEMENTS. EVERY GARMENT THAT I’VE DESIGNED, EVERY SHOW THAT I’VE PRESENTED, HAS A BACKGROUND STORY. I’M COMPLETELY UNINTERESTED IN CLOTHES AS FASHION ITEMS, AND I NEVER TRIED OR WANTED TO BE ”TRENDY”. I LOVE THE STORIES THAT PEOPLE TELL, WITH THEIR LOOKS AND APPEARANCES. I’VE ALWAYS TRIED TO TELL STORIES ON THE CATWALK, WITH MY MODELS AND DESIGN.
