Stylish quote

“There is something special about clothes that are made by women (at the atelier) and not by machine. They do something for the clothes. There is a huge difference when I see a suit, or pants and a shirt being done by the atelier, and the same pieces done by a factory. It’s an emotion. Zara can’t copy that.”

Alber Elbaz

  2. Of course Zara can't copy that. Just as a digital camera can't copy the emotion a film camera and the photographer behind it capture.

    1. Спасибо, Саша! Кстати, очень многие цитаты я нахожу в журналах, когда читаю интервью. Хотя, да, 2/3 - это из книг и документальных фильмов. x

  6. I think, this is really true, dear Natalia! I made exactly this experience during wearing hand made Traditional Bavarian Dresses or something which was sewn by my mother or by myself :)

  7. Haha love that, Zara really does carbon copy everything (as I have shown in my latest post). The love and passion behind fashion really comes from the atelier ground up.

  10. How do you always find the best quotes about fashion?? : ) This is so so true! Although, I shop at Forever 21 all the time, there is definitely a difference between their clothing and something from an atelier.
