In honour of fashion month and to kick off the new fall season, what better time to look for some worthy advice from some sartorial seers.

Fashion designers are a group that's never lost for words. They can deliver delicious bon mots, have a knack for a quip and perhaps because they dedicate themselves to a craft that requires them to predict what society will want to wear months in the future, they can deliver prescient quotes.

And with some legendary designers, even after they have passed on, their words continue to resonate.

The month of September marks the beginning of a flurry of international fashion weeks as some of the world's most talented designers debut their collections for next spring. An army of retailers, journalists, editors, models and photographers will start off in New York Fashion Week (currently underway) before heading to London, Milan and ending in Paris in early October. Along the way, designers will endure numerous interviews and some of those soundbites will turn into pearls of wisdom, living on forever.
