I am home from Milan. I am very delighted. My fashion shows were a great success… when I say a success I mean that I have been able to stir emotions… to make you dream… to allow every woman to play with her own personality, with her own femininity…

With my words I would like to make you understand how much I love to create fantastic dresses. Through my creations I can set my imagination free along with all my creativity… My beautiful Florence has always inspired me throughout my life: its arts were created by so many wonderful artists over the centuries…

ART… FASHION… FANTASY… CREATIVITY… give me the energy and the Joie de Vivre that I convey to my creations.

To all those young people who ask my advice, to those who would know the secret of my success I would say that it is important to strongly believe in yourself, to develop great self-esteem… it will help you a lot in life and allow you to overcome any difficulties.

If you want to enter the world of fashion you have to create with your heart… your creations have to be different, never monotonous or similar to those of others… the monotony of the minimalists is dictated solely by business objectives, monotony may take you to the stock market but it will never give you that satisfaction that will complete you as an artist.

I remember the Lectio Magistralis I gave to a packed house of students at the prestigious Oxford Union, their eyes were on me… I felt their esteem… they were anxious to draw from my words the advice with which to face their future.

I love you all… do you love me?
