“I think the past and one’s own experiences are so important. You have to know what you’re talking about. It does annoy me about young journalists who know bugger all, and yet they sit in judgment. The level of fashion journalism is rock bottom at the moment. A man like Karl Lagerfeld is highly cultured, with a huge breadth of experience and knowledge. But among today’s media, he’s casting pearls before swine.”

I very rarely review fashion shows – sometimes here in New Zealand with designers whose clothing I know particularly well – almost never overseas. Competing against the likes of Tim Blanks, Suzy Menkes and Colin McDowell can be slightly daunting for a young writer.
