‘My role in all of this is very simple. I make clothing like armor. My clothing protects you from unwelcome eyes.’
‘I believe that there are three conditions to a woman’s beauty. First, you must realize that not all women are beautiful all of the time. Sometimes beauty comes on a subconscious level. When she is in love, or has met someone new and exciting, she shines. Second, you must understand that life is unfair. Beauty is something that, for some, must be worked at. The third condition is luck. Some women can just be lucky.’
‘I love the back. A beautiful back makes a beautiful front. When you slouch, think about what happens to your front. You have to keep your back in the right position. This is where your spirit lies.’

inspiring exhibition ’Watercolour’ at Tate Britain 16 February – 21 August 2011 (still got nearly a month left!) Here are some of the work which impressed me the most:
Hhareem Life, Constantinople (1857) by John Frederick Lewis watercolour on paper
Unfortunately I cannot find high quality image of this painting, so this picture doesn’t show how nice the actual painting is. On the real painting, all the colours and lines are super delicate, especially the peacock feathers on the left.
Damascus (1861) by Edward Lear
I cannot imagine watercolor could be drawn in such an exquisite way! really nice texture
Arthur Melville The Blue Night, Venice 1897 Watercolour and gouache on board
Nicola Durvasula Eighty-Three, 2009
watercolour, gouache, pencil on paper
