Fashion wisdom from Yves Saint Laurent

Some quotes carrying fashion wisdom from the legendary fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent, who died Sunday, all attributed to the Foundation Pierre Berge Yves Saint Laurent:

_ "I participated in the transformation of my era. I did it with clothes, which is surely less important than music, architecture, painting ... but whatever it's worth I did it." (2002)

_ "I always believed that style was more important than fashion. They are rare, those who imposed their style while fashion makers are so numerous." (1993)

_ "The most beautiful clothes that can dress a woman are the arms of the man she loves. But for those who haven't had the fortune of finding this happiness, I am there." (1983)

_ "I tried to show that fashion is an art. For that, I followed the counsel of my master Christian Dior and the imperishable lesson of Mademoiselle Chanel. I created for my era and I tried to foresee what tomorrow would be." (1983)

-"The street and me is a love story. 1971 is a great date because, finally, fashion took to the street." (1971)
