Giovanna Battaglia on starting her styling career: "I had never assisted anyone. I just started doing my own shoots and making my own mistakes — big mistakes. But the good thing about making a mistake by yourself is that you never do it again. I didn't know how expensive it was to ship a box from Milan to Paris, and I spent 2,000 euros sending outfits from Yves Saint Laurent. I was in tears on the phone with UPS, like, Oh my god, I could buy a pair of Manolos, a coat, and a Prada dress for that!" [Teen Vogue]
