I do love a witty quote, especially those bitterly acerbic ones that certain fashion designers just can't help themselves from giving out...
Here are a few of the more notable ones that I recently heard, regarding the financial crisis:
John Galliano: "Of course, I'm aware of the credit crunch, but it is not a creative crunch - not at the house of Dior, anyway."
Giorgio Armani: "If you react to the crisis, you can't produce high fashion... High fashion is like watching a beautiful film, it belongs to a different world."
Karl Lagerfeld: "This whole crisis is like a big spring house-cleaning - both moral and physical. There is no creative evolution if you don't have moments like this. Bling is over. I call it 'the new modesty' ".
