Alber Elbaz: “The best inventions are born out of errors, and are not created according to the forms”
Sketches make life very difficult. I have to discuss each of them, and a whole story arises from one dash. In the end, I always ask myself: if I were a woman, would I wear this? If so, I put it in the collection, if not, I throw it away. But I never think about it at first.
I admire women, and most of all I like to look at the “transformation” that occurs when a girl puts on one of my dresses.
It seems to me that if a person wants to convey emotions, then he must write a letter, because real feelings can not be sent by e-mail or SMS.
If I was not a designer, then I would become a doctor. It’s such a fantasy. The doctor will give you a pill if your head hurts, and I will create a beautiful dress. And we both will do it so that you will be fine.
I always say that the fashion is somewhat like a roast chicken. You do not have to think much about to understand: it’s delicious.
If you are engaged in creativity – music, painting, design, architecture – it is extremely important to provide yourself with freedom in order to be able to make mistakes.
The best inventions are born out of errors, and are not created according to the forms. I need to have close, understanding people to whom I can approach with a certain idea, for example the idea of making a fashion show about birds, and they will understand what I mean.
It’s easy to be a fashionable critic: you talk about what you like or, conversely, do not like, but life is more than just love and hate.
I feel like a citizen of the world of women.
Without a dream, you become an ordinary marketing director.
