Thought for the day


Enter the ateliers of the great couturiers and you will feel that you're not in a shop but in the studio of an artist who intends to make of your dress a portrait of yourself, and one that resembles you. Paul Poiret

I've always dreamed about being a fairy in 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.

Poiret did some amazing things for women. He was far ahead of his time. I just showed some drawings of his designs in my French class yesterday (I presented his work—and five others'—in French), and everyone agreed that even today his designs look futuristic.

Amazing. What a visionary.
