I’m doing a project where I needed to come up with quotes on fashion and style and discovered all these gems. I think the Oscar Wilde one is my fav:
We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.
Fashions fade, style is eternal.
The difference between style and fashion is quality.
Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity.
I don’t design clothes, I design dreams.
I’m not that interested in fashion… When someone says that lime-green is the new black for this season, you just want to tell them to get a life.
Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.
“I design dreams!”
I love it.

i'd like to give bruce oldfield a high-five. his quote is a bit more negative and cynical than i generally prefer, but i have to agree with him wholeheartedly on this one.
Yup, I second the Oscar Wilde one. Fashion is pointlss. Having said that, I religiously watch the Academy Awards and Golden Globes every year to see what the stars are wearing! What's the project you're working on?

MJ- It's the project we were talking about when you were over here. I'm designing the website for her business.
