I am especially grateful that I have been able to keep my own style over the decades, in spite of the many changes that have taken place in the world of fashion and in its business.
Even as a young boy, my passion was to design, and I have been very lucky to be able to do what I have loved all my life. There can be few greater gifts than that.
An evening dress that reveals a woman's ankles while walking is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen.
I am happy that thousands of students, young designers and fashion people will be able to see and study my work in every aspect of it.
