Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that
we have to alter it every six months
My philosophy has always been to help women and men feel
comfortable and confident through the clothes they wear.
Fashion is the science of appearances, and it inspires one
with the desire to seem rather than to be.
–Edwin Hubbel Chapin US clergyman, author
Art produces ugly things which frequently become beautiful with time.
Fashion, on the other hand, produces beautiful things which always
become ugly with time.
–Jean Cocteau French poet, novelist, director
The customs and fashions of men change like leaves on the bough,
some of which go and others come.
–Dante Alighieri Italian poet
I never truckled; I never took off the hat to Fashion and
held it out for pennies. By God, I told them the truth.
–Frank Norris US novelist
Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or
no influence on society.
When his wife asked him to change clothes to meet the
German Ambassador: they want to see me, here I am.
If they want to see my clothes, open my closet and
show them my suits.
Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes.
–Henry David Thoreau
There’s harmony and inner peace to be found in following
a moral compass that points in the same direction
regardless of fashion or trend.
