Nicola Formichetti: ‘I Think Old People Should Just Be Old and Go Away’

Nicola Formichetti, Lady Gaga, and Sebastien Peigne.

In an interview for British Elle's "Collections" edition, Nicola Formichetti stated, "I think old people should just be old and go away," adding, "It's not about being in the industry for ten years anymore: it's about good ideas." To give him the benefit of the doubt, his comment seems to refer to older, established people in the fashion industry, not the elderly in general (we don't want to misconstrue things, after all). He continues: "[Fashion] still has this elitist feeling — it's really scary ... Me and Gaga, our motto is 'fuck fashion' because we love it so much we want to destroy it and start again and keep it fresh."
