"I think the most important thing is that it is about the hard work. I mean I always say to my assistants, 'I would never ask you to do something I haven't done.' And I've done it all. When I started out there were no assistants. I traveled the world with 20 trunks, packed them up, made sure I got everything, unpacked them, repacked them. I mean we've done this all and it really is about the work." br>
