Proust, my big inspiration for 'Goon Squad,' uses music a lot in his novel, both in terms of plot and structure.

When I started out in fashion, everything had to be very structured and tight and controlling, and now I'm getting to a point where I think - I could wear a great big parka, that could be quite fabulous. I haven't always got to show off my size, show off my shape. It's a turning point for me.
