I work from home a lot. I think I get as much work done at the office as at home, and I’m used to working with people who don’t work in the office. I don’t really care where they are, even if they’re on a banana leaf somewhere. If they deliver their work, I am completely fine. I don’t need someone sitting at their desk to produce.

I remember someone once said there is a practical aspect to my designs, and I remember thinking, ‘That doesn’t sound so creative,’ but that is actually the truth. There is a practicality to it. I don’t design just to design. There is a reason and, hopefully, an interesting reason behind it – that is where my creativity comes in.

Before I came to New York, I only had a few pictures of the city in my mind. And you know ‘That Girl?’ Marlo Thomas jumping with her hat? I always loved that, and I wondered what that double street she crosses is. And it’s Park Avenue! And that’s what I can see out my window.
