Q: But you shy away from the word "feminism"?
A: It's one of those coined phrases that has a lot of innuendo and not much meaning these days. There's a stereotypical perception that a feminist is somebody who believes in equal rights for men and women. Well, I believe men and women are different and they have different needs, therefore the concept of equal rights doesn't really sit with me in many ways.
another pearl of widsom from the same interiew:
Q: Why has fashion alienated larger women?
A: It's expensive to create the products. Perhaps larger women haven't been as celebrated and therefore haven't been interested in themselves, but today larger women, or all different body types, are celebrated.
