I feel very blessed to have the support I have and to have the fans that I have. I'm still striving to make it every day.

Some suggestions for you :

One thing I have that the majority of other designers don't is humor. That's distinctly my approach, and it was distinctly Franco Moschino's, too.

With the clothes I design, I think about my friends, how I'd want them to dress, what I'd want them to wear.

I don't care if the critics don't like me. I want to be the people's designer, like Diana was the people's princess.

I started at Moschino Oct. 31 or Nov. 1, 2013, and now I go back and forth between Milan and Los Angeles, where I live.

I think one thing I've learned over the years is just that you're not going to ever please everyone, and the most important person to please is yourself.

I love MTV, and I love the VMAs. There's no award show like it. It really is the coolest award show, hands down.

I feel very blessed to have such wonderful cheerleaders and champions of my work.

My story is the American Dream, a hundred percent.

I feel like we have to fight for art.

I'm an introverted extrovert. My job sets me apart, but I'm not hammy and don't need attention.

I think fashion takes itself way too seriously. It's just fashion, people. It's just clothes. It should be frivolous and fun. You're not meant to see it as church and pray to a blouse.

When Jackie Kennedy wanted to wear her favourite European designers, she was told no. She had to start working with brands like Adolfo, who had to create Chanel knock-offs because that's what she wanted to wear.

The main thing I hope people see is how passionate I am about my work, and I know people talk about it, but I do work really hard on my stuff, and it means a lot to me.

You don't have to be born wealthy and have an aristocratic last name or have connections or all these things. If you have a dream, you can believe in something and work hard and struggle and fight for it and still have a chance to succeed.
