“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury." Coco Chanel
"I want to do my best to take care of the planet by designing with recycled and eco-friendly materials. I think we all have to start with what we know because it can seem like a daunting task since I feel the world is in crisis. I design clothing, so I figured I'd start there."
"Instead of getting a bolt of fabric that anyone down the block could buy, using recycled materials creates a more individual look."
"Because I work with vintage fabrics a lot, I buy what appeals to me personally and the colors in the fabrics make the color palette…I also feel that women look better in color than in too much black; pinks, peaches, corals add more life to your face."
L.A. eco-designer who frequently uses recycled materials
“When in doubt, wear red."
“I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it."
