TODAY’S PERSON OF INTEREST
Alber Elbaz, fashion designer

Elbaz is very conscious of his weight, which influences his designs.

“I do things without décolleté, nothing is transparent,” Elbaz said. “I am overweight, so I am very, very aware of what to show and what not to show, and I am sure there is a huge link with being an overweight designer and the work I do. My fantasy is to be skinny, you see? I bring that fantasy into the lightness — I take off the corset and I bring comfort and all these things that I don’t have. What I bring is everything that I don’t have. This is the fantasy. This is the concierge that goes home.”

He also hates the idea of the ‘It’ bag.

“[T]here is nothing scarier than being ‘the designer of the moment,’ because the moment ends.”
