The designer, on whether designers are put under increased pressure these days: "It depends on where you were born, how you were raised — it depends on who that person is. I do think the power of fashion has gone down though. Making money is so important now. It's not about fashion as much as it is expensive handbags. Then there's this cheap diluted fashion. What is important has changed." [Vogue UK]
