Best quotes by Alber Elbaz

Alber Elbaz

Alber Elbaz

Israeli fashion designer

I'm not a plastic surgeon, and I cannot change the DNA of a person, but when I see a woman try on my clothes and she feels beautiful, I know I am doing my job.

I thought, 'It doesn't matter what that woman is wearing,' but then I realised actually it's our job as designers to make women smile; to bring them the chocolate without the calories.

If you change a woman's look, you change her persona.

One woman told me that every time she wears Lanvin, men fall in love with her. Another told me she wore Lanvin to face her husband's lawyer because she felt protected. If I can make men fall in love with women and if I can protect women, I think I can die peacefully.

I am always trying to put myself inside: Every dress I do, I think, 'If I were a woman, would I wear it?'

I am not interested in perfection, and neither are the women who wear my clothes.

Women try to be the best everywhere, and it's impossible. I want my clothes to give women the freedom to just be - I want them to put on my dresses and shine.

Me, as a designer who is not exactly skinny, all I want is comfortable clothes.

Our clothes are not always beautiful on the hanger, but put them on, and they fit like bathing suits.

I always say that women are very strong and men are powerful. But beauty gives you both strength and power. I never think of it. It's just one of those natural things. It's the only thing I know how to do.
