I am never satisfied with myself and that is what keeps me going – I have no post-satisfaction. Fashion is always of the time in which you live. It is not something standing alone. But the grand problem, the most important problem, is to rejeuvenate women. To make women look young. Then their outlook changes. They feel more joyous. I like the irony in my work. Design and style should work toward making you look good and feel good without a lot of effort so you can get on with the things that matter. I remember walking the dog one day, I saw a car full of teenage girls, and one of them rolled down the window and yelled, ‘Marc Jacobs!’ in a French accent.
I think it’s an old fashioned notion that fashion needs to be exclusive to be fashionable. Fashion is to please your eye. Shapes and proportions are for your intellect. I think it’s an old fashioned notion that fashion needs to be exclusive to be fashionable. My aim is to make the poor look rich and the rich look poor. Every day I’m thinking about change.
