london - ouch hussein! usually, this revered british designer moves
people with his catwalk creations, but this time he chose a quote. in this past sunday's edition of the independent, this is what he had to say about celebrity designers: "Why does KATE MOSS have to design a collection? It's kind of insulting to us because it's like saying - and I don't mean this personally - 'I can sell more clothes off my name, off my brand, than you can, even though you're a better designer'. If I was a celebrity, I would honestly try to inspire people in another way."
