Quote of Note | Isabel Toledo

“Craft takes time, and therefore it is luxury. You cannot do an amazingly well-made garment without taking time—not just the time it takes to make something but also the time it took the maker to come up with the idea. That is all luxury, and that has been lost because we’re trying to make things faster and faster, cheaper and cheaper. The consumer tends to lose track of what luxury is.”
