When I went to high school, I wanted to be a designer of airplanes. But flunking out of the science high school brought me to a small private school that provided some of the attention I needed. I got it when an English teacher insisted I get some help with my writing. I did get help, and that help led me to think that I might become a writer.
I believe that I am a hat designer, not a milliner.
I'm a designer, not a businesswoman.
I enjoyed studying costume, learning about the corsetry and the historical context of fashion. I never had any real intention of being a costume designer.
I wanted to be a set designer when I was young.
It's my job to know what's available from every retailer, catalog, website, antiques mall, and craftsperson. A good designer or decorator has to have an almost encyclopedic knowledge.
Time is my biggest luxury. Finding time to do things outside of fashion, which I think for a designer is incredibly important.
A designer is an emerging synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist and evolutionary strategist.
R. Buckminster Fuller
I like a little bit of designer, with a bit of vintage and high street mixed in. I love it when you find those one-off key pieces, which end up becoming investment pieces.
It's not what you spend but how you wear it that counts. The key is often to dress up inexpensive basics with accessories. Something like a beautiful designer bag or belt can make everything else look richer and more luxurious.
Because of reality television and all these celebrities thinking they can be designers, everyone imagines that they can just become a designer, photographer, or model, but that's not the way things work. People have to go to school, learn their craft, and build a brand - that's the right, healthy way to do things.
McDonald's cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the designer of the F-15.
A good designer must rely on experience, on precise, logic thinking; and on pedantic exactness. No magic will do.
I appreciate the sentiment that I am a popular woman in computer gaming circles; but I prefer being thought of as a computer game designer rather than a woman computer game designer. I don't put myself into gender mode when designing a game.
I am a fashion designer. I'm not an environmentalist. When I get up in the morning, number one I'm a mother and a wife, and number two I design clothes. So the main thing I need to do is create, hopefully, exquisitely beautiful, desirable objects for my customer.
Modernism, rebelling against the ornament of the 19th century, limited the vocabulary of the designer. Modernism emphasized straight lines, eliminating the expressive S curve. This made it harder to communicate emotions through design.
Designer clothes worn by children are like snowsuits worn by adults. Few can carry it off successfully.
I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern, very now - no one wears head-to-toe designer anymore.

I never had the dream to be a great designer. My focus was just to do beautiful things.
I don't really buy designer stuff. I have a few nice things, but I don't really have the occasion to wear couture too often.
Yes, but more than being a designer, I'm more of a stylist, because I don't sew and I don't sketch, but I'm good at putting things together, choosing things that are chic and glossing over the aesthetics of things.
Dita Von Teese
