Without obsession, fashion as we know it wouldn't exist.
Most often, we think of the woman obsessed, with a look, a mood, a feeling, the desire for which fashion can satiate, or merely with a singular item — the perfect handbag, that wantonly embellished shoe — that she must obtain just because. Then, there’s the deep obsession of the designer who each season conjures a heady statement and sets out to express it to perfection in his or her runway collection.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
