There's something about quotes, right? We re-pin them like crazy on Pinterest, heart them on Instagram and share them on Facebook. And yeah, a good quote poster looks so good on our studio's corkboard or sticked to the wall with a piece of washi tape. It's essentially the home decor version of looks AND smarts.
When it comes to fashion quotes or quotes from famous fashion people, though, it can become pretty much cliche. The same quotes tend to go around until you can't bear seeing them anymore - no matter how nice is the the font. So we took it upon ourselves to find some lesser used fashion quotes from hoghly quotable fashion people and bring them to you - no one can say we don't like a challenge here at the Hot Crown HQ! We dfinitely do not agree with each and every one of these quotes - some are not even meant seriously, but were said with that tongue-in-cheek attitude we adore.
