Sonia, when you were very young did you want to be a fashion designer?

"Never-- My only ambition was to have 10 children. I knew nothing about fashion, it was an accident. " "I'm an impostor in fashion. I've never studied sewing, I don't know how to knit and despite all that I've become the queen of knitted clothes. If that is not imposture, I don't know what is." "Ten years after starting out, I said to myself: they're going to realise that I'm not a professional... but nothing happened at all, so I carried on." "I don't revolutionise. Ever. I evolve." ***portrait by Andy Warhol ****
