Alber Elbaz: “A few seasons ago I decided to have a screen in my studio, so when I did the fittings I would look at the screen. I’m really scared of bloggers, and I know this is how they judge me. But I realized that whatever looks good onscreen doesn’t always feel good on the body. So I decided to leave the computer — sorry to the lady from Google — and I went back to trust my eyes. And that’s what I do in fashion.” [Fashionologie]
