    Let's have a thread where we can post fashion, luxury related sayings...either quotes by different famous people or stories about fashion icons!

    I'll start with some of Coco Chanel's most famous quotes:

    “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”
    “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”
    “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
    “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
    “A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future.”
    “Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”
    “Fashion is made to become unfashionable.”
    “Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity.”

    I love Coco Chanel, I've seen this interview with her and she was such a strong personality, self confident and still lady-like! There are some rumors that she collaborated with the Nazi during Paris's occupation...her whole life story is very interesting!
     
  7. “The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress.”
    Hubert de Givenchy

    oh i love that one :)
     
  12. “A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future.” : I think this one is very funny. I have nothing against perfume and often wear some (or perfumed creams), but I think many women don't realise they are making everyone sick because they wear *too much* perfume....
    (Sorry for the off-topic).
