Donna Karan carries a pad with her at all times in case inspiration strikes

The US fashion designer enjoys the initial process of imagining a new collection, and likes to be prepared in case she sees something which triggers an idea.

She explained: "I love the conceptual part of the design process, which can come before seeing the fabric. I draw the ideas in my sketchbook, which I carry with me through the day, wherever I am, whatever I am doing."

Donna admits some of designs end up looking a lot different when they are finally made as they morph when they are being sewn.

The ambassador of Italy gave very high praise to prof. Lubomir Stoykov

Prof. Lubomir Stoykov’s new book World Fashion. Part Three: Italy is already a cultural and aesthetical fact. During its official premiere at Vitosha Park Hotel, it was presented by H.E. Stefano Benazzo – ambassador of Republic of Italy to Bulgaria who is also author of the introductory words. Mr. Benazzo notices: The work of Prof. Lubomir Stoykov has the merit to tell the story of the evolution of the Italian fashion through the stories of our biggest designers from the post-war period until the present, showing that fashion is most of all a result of the labour of really unusually people rather than of more or less inspired persons, more or less anti conformists. I am grateful to Prof. Stoykov, because thanks to him, many Bulgarians who love so much our country, will be able to "understand" the Italian fashion, will be able to explain its language and symbols, rather than only fall in love from first sight.

Theory of Fashion

University teaching has many advantages (although it has some disadvantages, which we are not going to discuss here and now) – it makes you feel always young because you are constantly communicating with students; gives you an opportunity to feel satisfied because of the awareness that you live a meaningful life and that there is someone to whom you could pass on your experience and knowledge; gives you a certain emotional-intellectual feeling and thus a special vitamin of spiritual confidence, for which there is no analogue.
