“People look at fashion and think it’s all about appearance,” says Kolb. “But there’s a depth to fashion that goes beyond how someone looks, that goes beyond appearance or style. Real style is about the giving, and the connection to issues that are important to us as individuals. There really is a heart to fashion.”

NOOVO EDITION .by Charo Gonzales - Interview by Jorge Margolles | Nov. 2009

Pierre Berge will tell you that "Fashion is not an Art but we need an artist to create it. Fashion is not an Art because it is first garments, and garments must be worn. Yves Saint Laurent and Gabrielle Chanel were able to escape from a pure aesthetics to penetrate the social fabric. Fashion is not just to please designer's fantasy - it is a dialog between the designer and his or her time. Fashion exists only if it becomes yours. Fashion needs marketing but cannot allow itself to be dictated by marketing."
