#Quote
1There's an awareness of fashion in this country, and it's not limited to gay people.
2People in their 70s can still have incredible lives. Health is the most important thing.
3I'm not a politician and don't want any part of politics.
4I'm neither Democrat nor Republican.
5I have the New York Daily News to thank for the jeans controversy.
6I've met people who didn't even know there was a Calvin Klein; they thought it was just the name of a product.
7I love Brooke. Exploiting her was never my intention.
8I'm not trying to be Mr. Universe, but I want to stay in shape.
9I guess I don't have a proper perspective on my fame; if I did, I don't think I'd like it.
10There has been a change in men's attitudes toward their clothes. Men are more aware of fashion; they're not afraid of it.
11I'm a sexual person, and that's reflected in my clothes and my advertisements.
12I'm more offended when someone's killed on television than when there's something that's sensuous or sexual. So what?
13I don't trust a lot of journalists.
14Women's Wear Daily can do more than any other publication to establish a designer.
15We were using Brooke as an actress; she was playing different roles: a liberated woman, a teenager, a vamp.
16When I started the business, I hardly went home. I became very driven about work and about my career.
17I personally would not have plastic surgery. What the hell for? It looks ridiculous.
18My men's-underwear print ads are very popular!
19Some people feel that what we're doing makes no sense, that it's just a waste of money. But it's working.
20Anyone who is secure about herself shouldn't be threatened by the ads I do.
21What we're doing is fun - if you have any sense of humor at all!
22People read things into my commercials that don't even exist.
23Nothing earth-shattering has happened in men's fashion. How much can you do with men's clothes?
24I certainly feel that an adult woman has a right to determine what happens to her life and body.
25We're not doing outrageous fashion; I make sports clothes that are relatively conservative, clothes that everyone wears.
26There are a lot of gay people in fashion, but it's not as if every gay person is a great creator.
27People have told me about organized crime in the fashion industry, but I can't talk about that. I'm looking to stay alive.
28When I get into bed at night, I hope I don't get into it alone!
29Commercials capture your attention, that's all.
30Traditionally, the sample is always better than the stock you deliver to the store.
31My wardrobe consists of antique clothes, many of my designs, plus shoes and shirts from Brooks Brothers and Paul Stuart.
32I don't dwell on success. Maybe that's one reason I'm successful.
33It seems there's always another rumor about my life; some people are simply talked about more than others.
34I'm in a business where no one cares about anything except how well your last collection sold.
35I don't always want my opinion known. What little privacy I have left I'd like to maintain.
36I couldn't have attended half the parties that I was supposed to have been to according to the newspapers. It bothers me.
37You don't only worry about the people who hate or resent you; in a way, you're more worried about the people who love you.
38AIDS is an absolutely tragic disease. The argument about AIDS' being some kind of divine retribution is crap.
39I won't allow myself to have tremendous fear.
40Levi's can produce many more Western jeans than we can and make them at a better price.
41I don't think about my fame very much.
42People who run a ready-to-wear company are businessmen rather than production or design people.
43I've been strong and determined all my life about many things I've wanted.
44If I allow journalists to describe a collection and they make mistakes, I'm upset, because the retractions are never noticed.
45I think there's something incredibly sexy about a woman wearing her boyfriend's T-shirt and underwear.
46I have the reputation of being easygoing. But inside, I'm like nails. I will kill.
47I love women. I'm trying to do beautiful things with them. I'm not trying to insult them. My life is not about that.
48It's fun seeing my label on someone's behind - I like that.
49The best thing is to look natural, but it takes makeup to look natural.
50If you really love someone and care about him, you can survive many difficulties.
51No 27-year-old has the experience to run a company that does a quarter of a billion dollars a year in sales.
52I'm crazy, and I don't pretend to be anything else.
53The only way to advertise is by not focusing on the product.
54I still drink vodka; I'm not an advocate of drinking, but I'm no angel. I don't like grass, because it just makes me hungry.
