Muchas veces nos partimos la cabeza pensando que ese cavernícola con el que llevas saliendo varios meses no está enamorado de ti. ¿Y ahora qué hago?, Si no me quiere ¿por qué sigue saliendo conmigo? ¿Si le digo lo que siento se asustará? ¿POR QUÉ NO ME DICE QUE ME QUIERE ?… ¿Les suena familiar?

To love is to admire with the heart: to admire is to love with the mind. You have to believe in yourself. Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero. (Seize the day and put as little trust as you can in the morrow.) I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness or abilities that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again. The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a mans foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher. With our thoughts we make the world. The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them, to the impossible.
Forgiving those who hurt us is the key to personal peace. The method of the enterprising is to plan with audacity, and execute with vigor, to sketch out a map of possibilities and then to treat them as probabilities. How soon will you realise that the only thing you do not have is the direct experience that there is nothing you need that you do not have? There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands. You seek problems because you need their gifts. Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now. Dwell in possibility. When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves.
Better get a stiff neck from aiming too high than a hunch from aiming too low. Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing. One cannot govern with buts. You cannot pick cherries with your back to the tree. You do not have to be a fantastic hero to do certain things, to compete. You can be just an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated to reach challenging goals.
Family thought fashion wasn’t very interesting. So I hid that. My customers are successful workingwomen. A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. You have a more interesting life if you wear impressive clothes. I feel that things happen for a reason and open up new opportunities.
Online media is increasingly influential in fashion. I adore the challenge of creating truly modern clothes, where a woman’s personality and sense of self are revealed. I want people to see the dress, but focus on the woman. I would like the people that buy my clothes to understand that for me it’s one small piece of art. I am always locked in my design studio. I like the irony in my work.
I sometimes feel that a pattern is almost a fashion statement in itself. Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury. Those fashion designers are just crazy; but aren’t we all? I have my favourite fashion decade, yes, yes, yes: ’60s. It was a sort of little revolution; the clothes were amazing but not too exaggerated. Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity.
I love things that age well – things that don’t date, that stand the test of time and that become living examples of the absolute best. I am never satisfied with myself and that is what keeps me going – I have no post-satisfaction. Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. I like things simple. Fashion never stops. There is always the new project, the new opportunity.
I want people to be afraid of the women I dress. I am always locked in my design studio. You have to always work against what you did before, and even against your taste. Age is something only in your head or a stereotype. Age means nothing when you are passionate about something. I have a fantastic relationship with money. I use it to buy my freedom.
I would like the people that buy my clothes to understand that for me it’s one small piece of art. An evening dress that reveals a woman’s ankles while walking is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. I remember walking the dog one day, I saw a car full of teenage girls, and one of them rolled down the window and yelled, ‘Marc Jacobs!’ in a French accent. Delete the negative; accentuate the positive! You can hide so much behind theatrics, and I don’t need to do that any more.
