Everyone, from designers to writers, needs inspiration for fresh ideas and bursts of creativity. So why can’t the same be done for fashion lovers? Whether it is a pinterest collage, favorite song, or (in this case) pearl of wisdom from the kings and queens of the fashion industry, inspiration is literally everywhere you turn. Not to mention, it is just as good as (if not better than) a shopping trip; you are using your own visionary mind and creativity to look at that gray sweater in a completely new, completely you way (something mannequins could never do, at least, not yet?). So sit back, clear your mind, and brush up on what these iconic figures of fashion have to say—believe us, you will want to hear it.
