YIN TO MY YANG
"I was raised on Manhattan's Upper East Side but always had a Downtown edge. It's why I love the model Stella Tennant, a genuine Scottish aristo who dresses like a tomboy. Certainly there's a yin-yang element to the mink-and-metallic bomber jacket that opened my fall show."
MY GUIDES "After my mother took me to the Paris couture shows in the late '60s, I'm pretty sure I was the only high-schooler in New York hanging out in a white YSL tuxedo jacket. I was also lucky to get to design accessories for Ralph Lauren. He always said to stick to your vision, no matter what new wave of trendiness hits."
