“Mary Poppins.” — Arlequin“An Austro-Turkish aristocrat vacationing in St. Moritz.” — Atil Kutoglu“This collection is about movement through time and place, the passage of time. It’s inspired by a woman in the course of her day.” — Behnaz Sarafpour“Very decorative elements...and, of course, Morrissey.” — Benjamin Cho“I have been reading the book, ‘The Man Who Killed Rasputin.’ The fall show will have a little bit of a Russian feeling.” — Bill Blass’ Michael Vollbracht“There are dark and mysterious qualities to the fabrics and sensual shapes.” — Charles Alexander“The glamour of après-ski.” — Custo Barcelona’s Custo Dalmau“I want a new balance of silhouette, new erogenous zones — mid-thigh, décolletage.” —Daryl Kerrigan “Vienna at the turn of the century. Regal, guilded imperial splendor and exotic spirit of the gypsies; the modern appeal of Klimt and Schiele, and the influence of the Ottomans and Istanbul.” — Derek Lam“The hero/heroine of epic science fiction and fantasy illustration books from the Seventiesand Eighties.” — Dimmer/D'versi “Chic, rich, swank and VIP only.” — Douglas Hannant“Fall is about discovering the mystery of a woman.
