"Marlene Dietrich was an inspiration to many generations of women. She was progressive and emancipated in times when women were not allowed to have the last word."

“Marlene had a relaxed way about the provocative element in her style. She was at ease messing with traditions and gender. Wearing a man's suit, smoking a cigarette flirting with a woman was just as natural to her as wearing a most glamorous evening gown of haute couture while being adored by the men.”

"Privately I enjoy very much to wear an easy look that is no gender. Of course I also like the glamorous style that is classic and retro for my professional appearance."
