Alberta Ferretti, fashion designer

There's a rather delicious interview with fashion designer Alberta Ferretti in The Independent newspaper.

An extract: Although I love my country, I feel like an international designer rather than an Italian one. My greatest sources of inspiration are contemporary women from different cultures - I take something from each one. I love French women for their frizzante attitude. English women have a touch of eccentricity, Americans are admirably determined, and Italian women are very passionate. If you put together all these qualities, you have a new model of woman, someone who has retained her femininity but who leads an active, productive life.

Ha, if you put all those together you have bonding, jealousy, gossip, laughter, bitching, sex talk, discussions of diet and exercise, and a few catty remarks.
