System Magazine invited powerhouses Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons to discuss what it means to be a fashion designer today. "The honest, outspoken and revealing three-hour conversation they had covers topics such as self-censorship, scale of operations, the merits of running your own company, and why Miuccia Prada, Raf Simons and Marc Jacobs should all swap brands for a season, just for fun. (At the time, Raf only had eyes for his own label, but his subsequent appointment as creative director at US giant Calvin Klein now adds an interesting perspective – and frisson – to this unique on-the-record meeting)."
Candidly, the designers exchange their feelings on the industry + twitter trolls. ‘People express such extreme opinions online about our collections, yet if we dare say one thing that is not politically acceptable, we are totally destroyed!’
