Olivier Theyskens autumn / winter 1999-00

I wanted this collection to be extreme. Monochrome black, with a touch of blue and white. At the same time there was the desire to go beyond the extreme, to show the absurd. In twenty years’ time people will be able to see that my clothes were made in 1999, and they will probably be very difficult to wear.

“We want to change for us the images of fashion designers entirely. It’s not an ideal structure that everyone works on an idea by a genius.
It would be better to progress with partners you can trust, than to dominate everyone by a designer’s ego. I appreciate spending time with family and friends, and would not like to spend my whole life just for fashion.”

Lieve Van Gorp spring—summer 1999.
First feeling for fashion: “3000 catholic kids, wearing the exact same uniform, imagine the horror! Customising those clothes to my own style — rebelling just within the rules — is my first recollection when it comes down to fashion. My shirts and socks (regulation white) just hàd to match and be in some sort of pastel colour like pink or yellow. To the powers-that-be I explained that my mother had ‘accidentically’ washed those whities with some strong other colour… I even attached small objects like a puppet or a colourful ribbon to my school blazer with safety pins to personalise it.” 
Lieve Van Gorp’s first feeling for fashion came while she was in high school. To distinguish herself from the other students, she added personal touches to her school uniform, dashes of colour and small accessories … This turned out to be her first step towards a career in fashion.

it’s so cute when you talk to someone a lot and then you notice the little phrases that you use and the stupid little things you say slipping into their vocabulary more and more

20:38"Cheating is NOT a mistake.
If you’re truly in love with someone, you will not be able to kiss someone else without tasting your loved ones tears stain your lips. You will not be able to take your clothes off for someone else without feeling like a field ripped bare to its soil. Cheating is a choice, its a choice you made because you obviously didn’t give a single fuck about your relationship."
20:37"I told you you’d get tired of me first."
