I enjoy seeing people have fun.
I know I have to be like people expect, because people love to dream with me, they like to think that I love my boat of 50 metres, that I drink Cristal for breakfast, that I dance until five o'clock in the morning. I am not like that.
I meet people, I like to ask: which sign are you?
I think I was the first to show that a designer could be like a rock star, that people should love your fashion but also put your name together with your fashion.
I would like the people that buy my clothes to understand that for me it's one small piece of art.
The press attack people to sell more papers without thinking, but when you get famous you have to put up with this kind of stuff.
Today, I'm very happy about myself, because I realized my dreams. I learned how to understand what people want.
Florence and art is something that is part of my life and is part of myself.
I tried immediately to have a baby because I was so afraid not to have a baby in my life.
Money is the most corrosive aspect of life today because it means that all attention to detail is forgotten.
I love to spend money.
I began to speak well at a very advanced age - 15, 16, 17 years old. It was psychological: the trauma of war, my family and growing up on my own. I was more or less a street kid.
Leopard is an animal design, and my designs come from nature.
With time, fashion has become part of my DNA.
My dream, maybe because of my family, of course, was to be a painter. I chose in one moment the direction of textiles; from textiles I went to fashion.
