This season, just now, with the Spring/Summer collections,
is the 45th anniversary of attending my first fashion show.
It is a personal celebration with many great memories
and historic moments as fashion shifted from Rome
to Florence to Milano with Paris always there for every season.
And my point of reference being London where I was spending
as much time as possible and where all was happening.
To have been so close to all these changes in the field,
and to meet the creative people behind them
is a privilege I cherish and I feel that it is not even me that has lived it!
I am always ready for the new, as though I had just started.
