I found this Alexander McQueen quote on Carolyn’s blog. If you are interested in fashion in TO, you really should take a look.
Beker: If you really had to give young designers now one piece of advice, the most important piece of advice, what would you tell them?
McQueen: This may be a bit harsh: I think you really need to look at yourself and decide whether you’re good enough. Life is too short. There are much better things to do if you’re not.
