In the end, you can’ t talk to everyone.
I feel very strongly that clothes that fit well make a person feel better. It’s maybe half the value of the merchandise.
I have a lot of fantasy.

Even as a child, I told my whole family how to improve their looks.
One glass of water doesn’t equal another. One may just appease the thirst, the other you may enjoy thoroughly. In Japan, people know about this difference.
I am convinced that you don’t need to spend a fortune to look like a million.
I think there is always a need for pure design. With pure design, you don’t need so much decoration.
Life is full of challenges and surprises.
