I very rarely watch my own fashion shows, but the makeup for my Fall 2011 show was just brilliant.
What I remember as a child is that other kids didn't care about suffering. I always did.
I don't feel comfortable defending my clothes. But if you've got the money to afford them, then buy something from me. Just don't buy too much.
If you saw Queen Elizabeth it would be amazing, she came from another planet. She was so attractive in what she was wearing.
Home, more than anything, means warmth and bed.
I don't care how many beauty treatments you have, I don't care which bag you're carrying - you have to have a dress.
I'm the proof - you can't throw away tradition.
I think it's important to vote.
I've got a real sense of three-dimensional geometry. I can look at a flat piece of fabric and know that if I put a slit in it and make some fabric travel around a square, then when you lift it up it will drape in a certain way, and I can feel how that will happen.
We are so conformist; nobody is thinking. We are all sucking up stuff; we have been trained to be consumers, and we are all consuming far too much.
The capitalist system is about taking from the Earth and from the other great commodity, labour. What's happening with this system is that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer, and the only way out of it is supposed to be growth. But growth is debt.

I have too much product, and I'm trying to rein it in and sell more of my main collection. I wish you didn't have to design so often; it would be good if you could keep on selling the same things for a few years and not have to do new things all the time.
You've got to invest in the world, you've got to read, you've got to go to art galleries, you've got to find out the names of plants. You've got to start to love the world and know about the whole genius of the human race. We're amazing people.
I never look at fashion magazines. I find them incredibly boring.
I design things to help people to hopefully express their personality.
Liverpool people are famous for liking clothes and fashion; they are very social and lively people, and we know that they like clothes.
Don't just eat McDonald's, get something a bit better. Eat a salad. That's what fashion is. It's something that is a bit better.
The only possible effect one can have on the world is through unpopular ideas.
The bravery shown by Azza Suleiman who dared to stand up for another woman who was being beaten, and paid a heavy price in doing so, is both awe-inspiring and humbling.
I'll tell you what I was like as a child. I was a good person. I was high-spirited but I was a big reader.
