The Stuff of Seams

"We are inspired by myths and legends, the labyrinth, black roses, and goddesses of flawless beauty."

"This season, 'Surviving the Zodiac' [the serial killer who inspired Patrik Rzepski's collection four season's ago] has a hard-edged somber feel to it. There are nuances of Japanese street gangs. Slightly romanticizing the feel and at the same time giving it a pre-Giuliani street edge." — Patrik Rzepski

"Fall is a mix of a youthful Jacqueline Bouvier's tomboy chic style and the folkloric mystery of Verushka in the Sixties and Seventies — understated style and distinct sophistication." — Tory Burch

"The inspiration is based around the dressing rooms of the Hollywood studios in the Forties — sultry and proud, playing with contrasting studio lights and the effects of shadows. Mixing old glamour with funky and versatile silhouettes." — Alice Temperley, Temperley London

"This season is about the comfort you derive from clothes that you are wrapped and bundled up in. It's about the cozy and warm feeling they bring you." — Richard Chai

"I looked at the work of artist John Singer Sargent, in

particular 'Madame X,' as an inspiration of iconic beauty ahead of its time." — Pamella Roland

"Inside out, bound, darted — shaped, draped creating a new form for autumn-winter 2006." — Kit Willow Michelmore, Willow

"Protection." — Tess Giberson, Tse

"The opulence of 18th-century France." — Naeem Khan

"We were inspired by the beauty and heroism of the Grecian and Victorian eras." — Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke, Sass & Bide

"A white rose…a perfect white rose in white snow.…Fragile and romantic, yet strong from its stem and thorns…" — Hanii Y and Gene Kei, Y & Kei

"All of my collections to date have been inspired by the number of the collection. This season is number eight. With eight symbolizing infinity, the beginning and end of a cycle, I was inspired to look at ideas from past seasons and combine them with new inspirations like alpacas, Turkish wrestling, [the movies] 'The Dark Crystal' and 'Les Invisibles,' which I think is a caricature of Les Encroyables."— Zaldy
