Roberto Cavalli slams Vogue Editor Anna Wintour
Roberto Cavalli has blamed Anna Wintour for the "terrible" fashion in the US.
The fashion designer has accused the editor of American Vogue of influencing women to wear distasteful clothes. He believes American fashion is dictated by her magazine.
“Just look at American fashion which is almost fashion. It’s terrible and you almost can’t even look at it, but it has been driven by a great journalist, Anna Wintour, who wants all women to be like her and to dress the way she does,” he said in an interview with Italian art and design site D. La Reppublica.
He also advised young people to stay away from design schools. Roberto did poorly when he was learning and created a job for himself by being different.
“I see young people coming out of design schools and they are too minimalist, probably because their professors are too minimalist, because they have professors who follow styles of design that are too industrial and commercial,” he said.
“Try to be different and try to create artistic fashion styles, then it can be transformed, changed, modified to take into account wearability and the possibility of actually being worn.”
Roberto is known for speaking his mind and rubbing people up the wrong way. He once slammed Chanel, saying he thought the clothes were made for “grandmothers”.
