                                                   Ensemble -The Hunger, Spring/Summer 1996

Beauty can come from the strangest of places, even the most disgusting of places.

                                                               -Times(London), February 12,2010-

                                                      Ensemble- Autumn/winter 2010–11

For me, what I do is an artistic expression which is channeled through me. Fashion is just the medium.

                                                                                                 -Muse,December 2008-

                                                       Coat Dante, Autumn/Winter 1996–97

I spent a long time learning how to construct clothes, which is important to do before you can deconstruct them.

                                                                        -Self Service, Spring/Summer 2002-

                                                         Dress VOSS, Spring/Summer 2001

There’s blood beneath every layer of skin.

                                                   -The Observer Magazine, October 7, 2001-

                                                      Jacket Joan, Autumn/Winter 1998–99

My designing is done mainly during fittings. I change the cut.

                                                 -Self Service, Spring/Summer 2002-

                                             Dress The Horn of Plenty, Autumn/Winter 2009–10

It is important to look at death because it is a part of life. It is a sad thing, melancholy but romantic at the same time. It is the end of a cycle—everything has to end. The cycle of life is positive because it gives room for new things.

                                                                                    -Drapers, February 20, 2010-

                                                    Corset Dante, Autumn/Winter 1996–97

People find my things sometimes aggressive. But I don’t see it as aggressive. I see it as romantic, dealing with a dark side of personality.

                                                                                                    -W, July 2002-

Ensemble Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, Autumn/Winter 2002–3
This collection was inspired by Tim Burton. It started off dark and then got more romantic as it went along.

                                                                         -Numéro, July/August 2002-

                                 “Coiled” Corset The Overlook, autumn/winter 1999–2000

I especially like the accessory for its sadomasochistic aspect.

                                                 -L’Officiel, February 2010-

                                    Ensemble The Girl Who Lived in the Tree, autumn/winter 2008

I don’t really get inspired [by specific women]. . . . It’s more in the minds of the women in the past, like Catherine the Great, or Marie Antoinette. People who were doomed. Joan of Arc or Colette. Iconic women.

                                                                         -Purple Fashion, Summer 2007-

                                              Ensemble It’s Only a Game, Spring/Summer 2005

[In this collection] the idea of the chess game meant that we looked at six different types of women, women on opposing sides. We had the Americans facing the Japanese and the redheads facing the tanned Latinos.

                                                      -Another Magazine, Spring/Summer 2005-

                                                   “Oyster” Dress Irere, spring/summer 2003

Working in the atelier [at Givenchy] was fundamental to my career . . . Because I was a tailor, I didn’t totally understand softness, or lightness. I learned lightness at Givenchy. I was a tailor at Savile Row. At Givenchy I learned to soften. For me, it was an education. As a designer I could have left it behind. But working at Givenchy helped me learn my craft.

                                                    -Purple Fashion, Issue 7, Summer2007-

Dress Sarabande, spring/summer 2007
I liked the padded hips because they didn’t make the [piece] look historical, but . . . more sensual. Like the statue of Diana with breasts and big hips. It’s more maternal, more womanly.

                                                             -Purple Fashion, Issue 7, Summer2007-

                                                     Dress Sarabande, Spring/Summer 2007

Remember Sam Taylor-Wood’s dying fruit? Things rot. . . . I used flowers because they die. My mood was darkly romantic at the time.

                                                                              -Harper’s Bazaar, April 2007-
