“You might think people would buy clothes out of pity, but they won’t. People buy clothes because they want to be excited about themselves. So it can’t just be goody-goody clothing; it has to be great clothing that just happens to be goody-goody, too. You’ve got to put the fashion first.”

— British designer Katharine Hamnett, who popularized the slogan T-shirt, speaking in the June 5, 2013 edition of the Telegraph.
