There is no such thing as 'on the way out' as long as you are still doing something interesting and good; you're in the business because you're breathing.

I'm rather old-fashioned about this video business.

It's all relatively new. We really don't do videos, Fleetwood Mac. We've only done two.

I am especially grateful that I have been able to keep my own style over the decades, in spite of the many changes that have taken place in the world of fashion and in its business.


Fashion business quote People do not buy goods and services. They buy relations, stories and magic.
People do not buy goods and services. They buy relations, stories and magic.

We're richer, but that wealth doesn't reflect durable, authentic economic value - which is hitting fast diminishing returns. The growth that we're pursuing is neither sustainable - nor is it, in many ways, real growth at all. Boardrooms from finance to autos to energy to pharma to fashion have learned that the hard way.

Market values are fixed only in part by balance sheets and income statements;

much more by the hopes and fears of humanity; by greed, ambition, acts of God, invention, financial stress and strain, weather, discovery, fashion and numberless other causes impossible to be listed without omission.

I think that fashion has become such a big business and with globalization we are on new territory at this point. We are not just designing for a country we are designing for a world now.

Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.

You know, the fashion business is this legendary repository of young girls on their way to getting husbands. I really wanted to work.

The art world is now a fashion industry, led by its Whitney Biennial 'nose for the new look.' But nobody, it seems, has the guts or the brains to blow the necessary whistle and holler, 'Hold on guys! What the hell is this ugly bit of business?

I love making people laugh and feel good, and that's awesome and special for me to be able to do that, but there really is nothing like kicking ass whether it's on a major scale, or whether it's in more of a dramatic fashion. Being physical and taking care of business the old-fashioned way is something that I love doing.

There are so many empty headed people in the fashion business who take themselves way too seriously and I don't think I am at all like one of them. To me there are lots more important things in the world than just having the right shoes!

Fashion business quote Love your parents. We are so busy growing up, we often forget they are also grow
Love your parents. We are so busy growing up, we often forget they are also growing old.

I've been spoiled being in the fashion business.

My son will be like, 'Mommy, 20 new pairs of shoes came today. How come?' Because I'm always telling him it's not normal to have 20 pairs of tennis shoes to try on before school.


I'm a business first and foremost so whatever my business is, it's separate from my personal. It's like whatever I do business wise, it's done in the business fashion whether it's promoting , marketing, whatever I'm doing.

It is not permitted to a man, who takes up pen or chisel, to seek originality, for passion is his only business, and he cannot but mould or sing after a new fashion because no disaster is like another.

Fashion business quote Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your o
Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow you most intense obsessions mercilessly.

When we started Skype, if you look at analyst reports, no one forecasted it as a big business. Also when Google started, it was not fashionable to be in search. It's not trying to do the obvious - that's the hard part.

I think the moment that I'm very proud of is building a business without using animals. And, hopefully, changing people's perception of how you can do luxury fashion.

If you want to get into a good entrepreneurial business, guillotines may be in fashion.


Fashion business quote Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.
Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.

I studied to be an architect. And I find tremendous similarities between building a company and the design process. Businesses have to do their planning on the fly in a fashion similar to an architect sketching.

I was always fascinated by the absurdities and luxuries and the snobbism of the world that fashion magazines showed. Of course, it’s not for everyone...But I lived in that world, not only during my years in the magazines business but for years before, because I was always of that world-- at least in my imagination.

I think it's changing is that business is not as good as it was and it has become a real question in the world of fashion. You see, bags and shoes don't take on the seasonal quality that fashion does. A black leather bag can be good in any season, but you can't say the same about fashion, particularly about fabrication.

Fashion business quote Train people well enough so they can leave. Treat the well enough so they don't
Train people well enough so they can leave. Treat the well enough so they don't want to.

Today it's fashionable to talk about the New Economy, or the Information Economy, or the Knowledge Economy. But when I think about the imperatives of this market, I view today's economy as the Value Economy. Adding value has become more than just a sound business principle; it is both the common denominator and the competitive edge.

When someone asks about a career in fashion, I say start at the bottom.

If you want to start a business, you have to know it from the ground up.


The secret of the truly successful, I believe, is that they learned very early in life how not to be busy. They saw through that adage, repeated to me so often in childhood, that anything worth doing is worth doing well. The truth is, many things are worth doing only in the most slovenly, halfhearted fashion possible, and many other things are not worth doing at all.

Fashion business quote My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me
My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and I do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.

Many of the most successful men I have known have never grown up.

They have retained bubbling-over boyishness. They have relished wit, they have indulged in humor. They have not allowed dignity to depress them into moroseness. Youthfulnesss of spirit is the twin brother of optimism, and optimism is the stuff of which American business success is fashioned. Resist growing up!

If you want to be more productive, then start at the start: get there on time.

Whether it is a meeting, a flight, an appointment or a date, it's important to ensure you are there when you say you will be there. This may feel like an old-fashioned tip to give, but it has served me well for five decades in business.

My mother didn't want me to be in fashion.

She was in the fashion business, so was my brother, and she thought it was too crazy for me. She wanted me to be married with children, to be independent, yes, but not to have a crazy life.

Fashion business quote Either get busy living or get busy dying.
Either get busy living or get busy dying.

I don't see anybody categorized as a 'fashion diva,' except for me! And I like that. I am thought of as a diva because I wear an evening dress and I take care of my look when I go out. I go to parties regarding business, not for fun. And that's why they call me a 'diva.'


I believe some people in this business suffer from fame because they behave in a famous fashion.

I don't think of myself as a brand, simply a designer.

A fashion designer who is married to an artist and together we have woven a body of worth through the years - with hopefully a recognizable signature. I look forward to one day becoming a brand... But that takes a business structure with brilliant business people to run it. I do look forward to that chapter in our life.

I'm always jealous of people in the fashion business, especially women.

I always feel like they look so light and chic. They figure out how to wear the minimal sort of outfit, whether it be the Prada uniform or a T-shirt with perfect-fitting Levi's and Birkenstocks.

I think the only word I can use to describe what I'm doing today is feeling free. Of course, it's a business - it's about money at the end of the day, but it's about ideas as well. When you treat fashion only like a business, you're not going to go anywhere; when you push on that, we have the chance to express ourselves.
