I'm a little like Marco Polo, going around and mixing cultures.
In the past, people were born royal. Nowadays, royalty comes from what you do.
It is nice to have valid competition; it pushes you to do better.
That is the key of this collection, being yourself. Don't be into trends. Don't make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.
Even Michelangelo got paid for doing the Sistine Chapel. To those artists who say they're doing it for the love of art, I say: Get real.
I like the body. I like to design everything to do with the body.
I have a fantastic relationship with money. I use it to buy my freedom.
I am not interested in the past, except as the road to the future.
Comfort is very important to me. I think people live better in big houses and in big clothes.
Designing came to me. I didn't have to move.
I never fall down. I always fight.
I think it's the responsibility of a designer to try to break rules and barriers.
I really want to make clothes that are feminine and help women look beautiful.
I am a typical Italian; I love the clan. But I don't think about getting married.
I don't license everywhere. I take care of my name.
I liked women as a shape to dress.
I try to contrast; life today is full of contrast... We have to change.
I want always to be positive.
I want to be a designer for my time.
I want to be the joy to people through my work.
