We arent all lucky enough to earn a living following our passion, but this is a good reminder that we can hopefully find some merit in the work that we do.
“Yes. If people take money out of their pockets, it means that what you are doing is relevant to them. I hope they don’t just buy because there is a logo but because the object is relevant to them. To sell is to prove that what you are doing makes sense. I’m completely against the idea that we do fashion for an elite — that would be too easy, in a way.”It's also a good reminder that what you spend your money on impacts the kind of world we live in - what types of products are for sale, what type of art is supported. You vote with your dollars, whether it's your local coffeshop (to stay in business) or in Macy's (what styles and brands are sold in stores). You get to vote if you would prefer cheap, disposable fashion or investment pieces. (Oh, now that's a whole other discussion. Of course, no one wants to support sweatshops, but we all cannot afford luxury, hand-crafted goods. Ok, another day!)
