A Quote by Elsa Schiaparelli on clothes, facts, fashion, politics, and trying

Fashion is born by small facts, trends, or even politics, never by trying to make little pleats and furbelows, by trinkets, by clothes easy to copy, or by the shortening or lengthening of a skirt.

Elsa Schiaparelli (1890 - 1973)
