Our universities also have a lot of foreign students. Are we going to ban them access because in their culture there's a certain type of clothing?
I like beautiful clothing. I love Bergdorfs.
I do shop online! But I'm shopping online mostly in the home categories – One Kings Lane and Gilt. At a lot of architectural websites, I buy a lot of hardware for cabinetry like hinges and things like that from England. So, you know, for me, I shop at Net-A-Porter, but I don't really shop that much for clothing online.
In Benin, there's a thing that family members wear the same pattern of traditional African clothing.

We live in an era of consumerism and it's all about desire - based consumerism and it has nothing to do with things we actually need. What do you actually need? Food, clothing and shelter. Everything else is entertainment. It's just the idea that we're so wasteful. I think a lot of self - identity and inner - personal development is hampered by consumerism and capitalism because we see ourselves as a reflection of the TV, rather than as a reflection of the people who are around us, truly.

The only tough thing is admitting to my wife how much a certain article of clothing costs.
