"What horrifies me most is the idea of being useless: well-educated, brilliantly promising, and fading out into an indifferent middle age."

"Fashion today is all about the product. With all the pre-collections and the shows that are just marketing exercises, it has turned into a system. For an old romantic like me, this is hurting a little bit. That’s why I try to do things my way. I like to have happy people around me, and it’s for these people that I create my collections. Fashion should never be too dark or too gloomy: it should evoke feelings of joy. I believe in clothes as tools for self-expression. The biggest compliment is if I see someone on the street wearing something I have created in a way I would never have imagined. Clothes should always tell something of the person that wears them – and very little of the designer who made them."

I applied for the job, called, left a message in the evening, emailed, followed up the next day, sent flowers, and then waited outside their office until they either said yes or had me arrested for stalking. All in all, it was a very successful job-hunt day.
Looks like I need to step up my job hunting game.. Apparently an app and a phone call is now considered passé
