Fashion Junkie

"I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass market fashion is very modern - wearing head-to-toe designer has become a bit passe. It's a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It's all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels and up-and-coming designers all together." Alexander McQueen.
