April 3, 2016 | BY Hayden Ng

From Linda Soo-Tan to Paige Parker, many of our past Fashion Hall of Fame inductees have said great things about fashion. Here, we pick five of our favourite fashion quotes.

Fashion Hall of Fame 2014

“Fashion now, is how we live... it’s everything that surrounds us. All of that fuses to create the confidence that dictates my style and fashion, which reflect who I am, and what I want to say without one word spoken. That’s the magic of fashion.” Paige Parker

“Fashion has been a part of my life for almost as long as I can remember. I love the convenience of being able to shop at midnight just to reward myself with a little something after a long day at work, and the sheer variety to choose from compared to the usually heavily-edited lines in store.” Tan Min-Li

Fashion Hall of Fame 2013

“Style is knowing who you are and what you want to say. The secret to pulling off any outfit lies in your willingness to try new things and, most importantly, being confident. But no matter what, never be a slave to fashion and never let an outfit wear you — always make an outfit your own.” Dimple Aswani

“Fashion is so fun — you can change from one mood to the next. I am like a chameleon whose look morphs instantly with a change of environment. I was both a Lower East Side rocker and a more polished uptown lady while living in New York City, then I turned preppie and flashy while in Martha’s Vineyard and Palm Beach.” Sabrina Ault

“Create your own style, be unique for yourself, and yet identifiable for others. Fashion may be all about keeping up with the seasons’ trends, but great style is about putting together an outfit that is occasion-appropriate, perfectly cut, and also epitomises your look. In my case, that’s vibrant, embellished and feminine, which is why spring/summer is my favourite season and why dresses I’ve collected over the years still take prime position in my wardrobe.” Linda Soo-Tan
