1-of a-Kind: Quote From Alber Elbaz

"I adored working with Geoffrey Beene. We talked the same language. He was 35 years in the business and always had his own vision. He was never trendy, I think that's beauty." -Alber Elbaz

Many people send out words of inspiration from the good book, while I forward quotes from my favorite musicians and designers. I often get inspiration from Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt album, as long as you have some form of a mentor or reference. I often wonder, what makes me-me, trying to be different in a world that's so focused on looking the same.
