Fashion Quotable: Candace Bushnell

, the writer who brought us SATC, has defended the use of designer labels in her work - insisting that they play an integral role in women’s identities.

“I don’t think fashion is part of my work for the sake of it, fashion for many women is a weapon. It’s comparable to men’s suits. There’s the salesman in the shiny suit and then certainly in New York, successful men wear hand-tailored Italian suits. So, as you get older, your clothes express your status as opposed to, ‘I found the right handbag, this is my weapon, get back’. Money and power go together. We as women don’t like to acknowledge that, but it’s true, so when you have money, the power paradigm with men shifts.”

Thanks Vogue UK.
