Karate is Budo and if Budo is removed from Karate it is nothing more than sport karate, show karate, or even fashion karate-the idea of training merely to be fashionable.

Everyday is a fashion show and the world is the runway

Success - See your goal; Understand the obstacles; Create a positive mental picture; Clear your mind of self doubt; Embrace the challenge; Stay on track; Show the world you can do it!

When you're an outsider or a misfit, if you play it smart, your motto should be, 'I'll show 'em. I will show you.'

I had never been to a fashion show before going to the Burberry show last month.

It was an extraordinary spectacle. I was incredibly green and had no idea what an undertaking it is. I also have a new respect for models because they are so close to the front row and must be so self-conscious.

Life is a fashion show, the world is your runway.

Fashion show quote Have more than you show, speak less than you know.

Have more than you show, speak less than you know.

I fall into that nebulous, quote-unquote, normal American woman size that legions of fashion stylists detest. For the record, I'm a size 8 - this week, anyway. Many stylists hate that size because I think to them, it shows that I lack the discipline to be an ascetic; or the confident, sassy abandon to be a total fatty hedonist.

I think I was the first to show that a designer could be like a rock star, that people should love your fashion but also put your name together with your fashion.

The secret of toe cleavage, a very important part of the sexuality of the shoe;

you must only show the first two cracks.

Fashion show quote The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don't tell you what

The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don't tell you what to see.

I still believe in the old fashioned ways of showing a woman Respect and Honor!!

Daily life shouldn't be a fashion show all the time.

You see, you just don't know I'm here to give you my heart And you want some fashion show

Fashion show quote I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for

I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.

If I see a fashion show with literal influences, it doesn't make me think any more. It doesn't make me dream.

I like my clothes tight enough to show I'm a woman, but loose enough to show I'm a lady.

I love clothes, but really I don't have that much to say about skirts.

Before I was writing, I went to fashion shows only when the designer was a good friend and I was there to show support.

Fashion show quote Strength shows, not only in the ability to persist, but the ability to start ove

Strength shows, not only in the ability to persist, but the ability to start over.

Well, my own men's collection always felt very free back in the days before Jil.

Once you make it this kind of dialogue with other people, with a fashion show and clients and whatever, it becomes something else. Free meets not so free.

My idea of elegance – and this refers to women as well as men – is that someone is elegant when he or she shows a good knowledge of what fits them, where you can find naturalness and self-esteem. Not showing off. Elegance is the idea of showing an optimistic depiction of oneself, and to lose oneself in the frivolity of style and fashion.

Being unprepared makes me nervous. I'm old-fashioned show folk.

Fashion show quote Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for truth.

Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for truth.

Part of the role of photography is to exaggerate.

Most of the photographs in your paper, unless they are hard news, are lies. Fashion pictures show people looking glamorous. Travel pictures show a place looking at its best, nothing to do with the reality... Most of the pictures we consume are propaganda.

When I went to Fashion Week, I was very disappointed by how few women of color were in those shows. I do speak to the younger girls, and I hear them when they say they're not getting the big contracts or into the big shows.

I like the ritual, the liturgy of a well-crafted, emotional fashion show.

I will never be jaded with this side of fashion. The catwalk is pure anthropology, something like an esoteric encrypted parade. It can totally be replaced but it will be missed.

Fashion show quote No one has ever made himself great by showing how small someone else is.

No one has ever made himself great by showing how small someone else is.

I love very much the night after every fashion show when I have all those invitations to parties and I stay quiet at home by myself.

We wish to learn all the curious, outlandish ways of all the different countries, so that we can "show off" and astonish people when we get home. We wish to excite the envy of our untraveled friends with our strange foreign fashions which we can't shake off.

We outgrow love like other things and put it in a drawer, till it an antique fashion shows like costumes grandsires wore.

Fashion show quote Never apologize for being sensitive or emotional. Let this be a sign that you've

Never apologize for being sensitive or emotional. Let this be a sign that you've got a big heart and aren't afraid to let others see it. Showing your emotions is a sign of strength.

I'm so happy that I finished college.

Going into this crazy vortex of scrutiny is tough. If I was younger than I was now and I was going to fashion shows, I might have this distorted sense of self. I might rely on those cameras. Because when I was 18, I was half-baked.

I like very much to put on fashion shows.

95% of being a success in the competitive world of fashion is just showing up on time and being there. I don't know how I knew that when I was younger. You have to stick around for people to remember you.

Fashion show quote Show respect even to people who don't deserve it; not as a reflection of their c

Show respect even to people who don't deserve it; not as a reflection of their character, but as a reflection of yours.

They asked me to do a show, and I was planning on showing my figure paintings.

But my friends told me I shouldn't - the paintings were good but a little old-fashioned. They said, "Why don't you show the other stuff?" I had also been making rather strange objects, more in the Freudian tradition.

If I'm teaching girls that do love to make cookies and do love fashion - that they can use math as a part of that - you think that's me saying, come on girls you belong in the kitchen, you belong shopping? Or, do you think it's me showing them how math is part of all their life, even the part they thought it had nothing to do with?

Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I think viewers are hungry for shows in which people say something meaningful.

Fashion show quote The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don't tell you what

The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don't tell you what to see.

When I was having my hair and make-up done backstage at a fashion show, I would sneak in a copy of Dostoevsky and read it inside a copy of Elle or Vogue. But it would be pretentious of me to say I was more intelligent than the other supermodels.

I don't see myself as a pure fashion designer sending dress after dress down the runway but about wanting those watching my shows to aspire to a certain lifestyle.

One of the things I noticed when I worked at Vibe was that backstage at a fashion show, they always referred to the black models as "black girls." I thought, "They never say 'white girls.'

Fashion is a very stressful place to work because of the demands of doing the shows - no one expects a writer to produce two books a year on the dot - but it's also a very toxic place to work.

For me, beauty and fashion are always connected.

One doesn't exist without the other. Make up is a key element of the Gucci runway show - it helps communicate the essence of the Gucci woman. Eyes, skin, lips - they're like accessories, all working together to create an unmistakable look.
