top fashion designer quotes

Having an identity crisis? Or perhaps a quarter-life crisis? It’s normal, don’t fret. Most of our role models faced some low moments before they became as successful as they are… and perhaps, these moments were the ones that even led them to tell it like it is, giving us iconic quotes that ring true even decades after. If you’re looking for strong words for that Carpe Diem vibe, the fashion industry is where it’s at. Anyone can shock and awe by being nasty, but these designers gave us fierce words to live by that inspire and are truly worth remembering:
