Yasmeen Ghauri Quotes:
“Having been an ugly duckling all through childhood, the first time someone asked me if I was a model I was very flattered and felt that maybe I wasn’t so bad after all. I was in my early teens.”
“I also believe glamorising drugs in fashion is irresponsible and unimaginative. There is so much more to be inspired by than that. The fashion industry should be accountable for the images that they convey to young women out there.”
Chanel, Jil Sander, Versace, Anne Klein, Christian Dior, Victoria’s Secret, Valentino, Hermes, and Lanvin.
