"They may think that all it takes to do fashion is to be famous [but] you have to devote your life. You have to work hard. Imagine if I tell you I want to be a ballerina.... I can't jump two centimeters, but can I be in the opera and jump? No. So I let the ballerinas dance and the chef cook and the actor act and the designers design." - Alber Elbaz of Lanvin (on entertainers coming out with their own clothing lines) in an old WWD.
Hear that Selena, Miley, CoCo, Hilary, and Kate?
You really need this picture of the super talented designer to fully understand the vision of Alber as a ballerina.
