just do it

(pic from nnm)

a quote i like from an interview magazine article. ann demeulemeester on whether she thinks its harder for designers now starting out, than when she started in the '80s:

"It’s never been easy. When I think back on what I did, it wasn’t like I waited until god fell out of the sky to help me. I just thought, If I want to do something, let’s do it. I had a lot of patience and went step-by-step. I made a little rack of clothing and I did it all by myself. I think, theoretically, yes, it may be more difficult to start today with the way things are. But I don’t like to say that, because I believe that if you have something to say, then you just have to do it. Good work finds its way in whatever time you’re in. If you want to start, then start, and don’t find a million excuses not to. It’s always a difficult time. When was it easy?"
