I don't wear perfume, and I don't like the air to be too saturated with scents.
I learned French in Tunis, along with Arabic. I also learned French history. I knew the entire history of the kings of France. And I was fascinated by Versailles.
Even if I was in prison, I could be free in my head. I can adapt easily.
Karl Lagerfeld never touched a pair of scissors in his life.
As a child, I was raised with my grandmother, alongside all my cousins, and the kitchen was always full.
Fashion will last forever. It will exist always. It will exist in its own way in each era.
I am never sure that anything's good enough. Something that is good today will not be good tomorrow.

I have total confidence in Beaute Prestige International to accompany me in creating a perfume that interprets my work and my world.

In an ordinary suit and tie, I'd look like a little macho. I'd be ridiculous.
Who will remember Anna Wintour in the history of fashion? No one.
My father could be very strict, but very fair. His father was the same. We all respected my grandfather; he was the head of the clan. Every morning, we all had to say good morning and kiss his hand. But not me. I jumped on his lap and bit him.

There was a woman in Tunisia called Madame Pinot. She was a midwife and had helped in the birth of my siblings and me. I assisted her. I helped women give birth to a lot of babies when I was very young.
I make clothes; women make fashion.
I take it to heart that, for example, there aren't enough funds for AIDS research, but people pay 20 times the value of an item of clothing.
