I asked some fashion industry insiders for quotes to use during my Viktor & Rolf fashion talk at the Barbican. Here is one from the delightful Piers Atkinson of the Daily Rubbish. In your opinion, what’s the best way for someone to create their own distinct personal style?
I THINK A MIXTURE OF; A GREAT EYE FOR FASHION DESIGN AND ADDING THE OCCASIONAL DESIGNER PIECE (RICH HUSBAND? FRIEND OF THE DESIGNER?!) WITH SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING BORROWED ETC – AND I’M ALWAYS A FAN OF THE HOME-MADE ADDITION! MY ULTIMATE STYLE ICONS ARE ANNA PIAGGI, ZANDRA RHODES AND DIANE PERNET – ALL OF WHOM SEEM TO FOLLOW THIS ETHIC! FASHION ANYONE CAN BUY, STYLE IS AN ART!
