“[…] a considerable part of my creative process is the result of my background and training in architecture. For me fashion is not only poetry, intuition and imagination, it is also method and an approach to design based on the concept of clothing as the result of a coherently determined intervention on shape.” Gianfranco FerréTHE WHITE SHIRT ACCORDING TO ME.
