Diane von Furstenberg
There's design, and there's art. Good design is total harmony. There's no better designer than nature — if you look at a branch or a leaf, it's perfect. It's all function. Art is different. It's about emotion. It's about suffering and beauty — but mostly suffering!
I wanted to be an independent woman, a woman who could pay for her bills, a woman who could run her own life — and I became that woman.
When you get into a hotel room, you lock the door, and you know there is a secrecy, there is a luxury, there is fantasy. There is comfort. There is reassurance.
I travel light. I think the most important thing is to be in a good mood and enjoy life, wherever you are.
