ON BE­ING YOUR­SELF “What has changed from the past is that in the ’80s, fash­ion was re­ally fo­cused—it was ei­ther this or that. It’s not like that any­more. Fash­ion de­pends on you, on your mood. It’s much bet­ter than be­fore be­cause now you can be com­pletely free.”

ON find­ing THE RIGHT FIT “The clas­sic im­agery of el­e­gance is a frag­ile weak­ness. I don’t like that. I like the idea of a fem­i­nine but mod­ern shape: You don’t have to wear a 20-cen­time­tre-high stiletto to show that you are strong.”

ON FEEL­ING AS GOOD AS YOU LOOK “I de­sign shoes not just for a show-off mo­ment but for plea­sure. It’s about wear­ing some­thing that al­lows you to feel fem­i­nine. When you wear some­thing you are very pleased with, it shows. When you feel re­ally good, you smile.”
