“The truth is that I live on a relatively grand scale, because that’s the way fashion is: By its very nature, it is larger than life. It’s fickle, it’s flamboyant, and it’s fabulous. But at the same time, it does not provide the boundaries a person needs in order to live a sane, happy life in service not only to oneself but also to others. Fashion is no substitute for family, and I do not believe I could ever have learned to appreciate haute couture had I not learned to appreciate simpler things first.”- Talley in his memoir “A.L.T”
