"I'm not afraid of the [fashion] system," the designer told the Independent. "I'm part of it. Sometimes the system helps you. Sometimes it chokes you.

Maybe if I was a skinny, handsome man my career would have been different. Maybe then I would have been more, like, 'Hellooo, look at my dresses'."
