“The minute you join into fashion they want to put you in a hole. They key is to be your own, never let them define you. You have to really define yourself.”
— Mazdack Rassi, owner of Milk Studios
“Opportunities are endless– experiment as much as possible. There is not a play book anymore, when I started there was a play book and everyone had to play by the rules…now there are no rules.”
“When we start a collection it’s a mood… a feeling. Based on that mood we find a silhouette.”
— Jack & Lazaro from Proenza Schouler talking about their design process from inspiration to construction then back full circle to the original feeling in the end.
“People who wear impressive clothes have better lives. Impressive clothes can be from H&M, the flea market, or you can make them yourself- impressive- is subjective. Fashion is transformative.”
— Simon Doonan Barneys New York Creative Ambassador-at-Large
In regards to self publishing their recent campaign themselves online:
“It’s control. You do it the way you want to do it. We release it on our own terms.”
— Jack & Lazaro from Proenza Schouler @ IFB Conference
“Whatever you choose to do in your free time you should do as a job.”
—Amanda Brooks, Barneys New York Fashion Director
