  58. “When my parents realized that what I liked was fashion, they gave me good advice. I remember my father telling me that I should try to do an internship.

They are still.” ~ Nicolas Ghesquiere
  59. “I do feel like L.A. has very supportive and collaborative energy. I felt that in New York too but also there’s so much space here! You can have a home studio.
