Quote of the Day
It's a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It's all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.
There are divisions between a culinary chef and a dessert chef, also called a pastry chef. There are specializations within the pastry chef field. Some pastry chefs specialize in baking breads, while others are master cake designers. Each field requires an exceptional level of creativity and attention to detail.
Three times a year, there's Strategicon convention, and I go for the board games. It happens Presidents Day, Labor Day, and Memorial Day weekends. You go and take a look at the new board games and meet a couple of board game designers, and you can check out games you don't own from the library and then return them.
Designers want me to dress like Spring, in billowing things. I don't feel like Spring. I feel like a warm red Autumn.
One doesn't want fashion to look ridiculous, silly, or out of step with the times - but you do want designers that make you think, that make you look at fashion differently. That's how fashion changes. If it doesn't change, it's not looking forward. And that's important to me.
I'm not like most designers, who have to set sail on an exotic getaway to get inspired. Most of the time, it's on my walk to work, or sitting in the subway and seeing something random or out of context.
There are only a handful of designers that influence other designers, and I have to keep one step ahead of the game.
Brazil has its own fashion identity. Many very talented Brazilian designers show every season at Sao Paulo and Rio fashion weeks.
I don't want to criticize any other designers, but I have to say that many of the people involved in this industry - directors and producers - are trying to make their games more like movies. They are longing to make movies rather than making videogames.
This is the entertainment industry, so game designers have to have a creative mind and also have to be able to stand up against the marketing people at their company - otherwise they cannot be creative. There are not that many people who fit that description.
Car designers are just going to have to come up with an automobile that outlasts the payments.
Over the past 20 years, I have noticed that the most flexible, dynamic, inquisitive minds among my students have been industrial design majors. Industrial designers are bracingly free of ideology and cant. The industrial designer is trained to be a clear-eyed observer of the commercial world - which, like it or not, is modern reality.
Clothes are fun. The designers have so much fun making them, you should have fun wearing them, too.
I didn't want to look like anyone else - like Janis Joplin or Grace Slick. That's why I never went to any of the big designers.
I do try and wear stuff by unknown designers, and I make sure I pay because if nothing else I have money.
I am very curvy, so the vintage stores suit me better than most designers. I just can't seem to give up crisps, or make my boobs shrink for that matter. Alas, I will never fit a size zero.

There's a tendency to think that young designers only do fantasy fashion, but I'm more interested in making clothes that women can afford.
I believe designers should eliminate the unnecessary. That means eliminating everything that is modish because this kind of thing is only short-lived.
I have a showroom where we experiment with twelve cakes. We develop sketches and ideas for cakes for the next season. We work with the top fashion designers to see what type of lace they are using or work with the top florist for us to be able to make various sugar roses or flowers.
It's amazing to see things that are suggested in the book fully developed and so brilliantly realized through the artistry of the designers.
Sometimes I can't figure designers out. It's as if they flunked human anatomy.
Designers are very fickle. I never wanted to be a victim of that. You're in one minute, out the next.
You can't really have like high end designers for everything.
I thought, If people are going to write about what I'm wearing, then I would wear young British designers who need the publicity.
Growing old gracefully used to begin at about 35, but today women prefer to 'stay young gratefully' with thanks to designers, beauticians and plastic surgeons.
