It is a fact that most male fashion designers are gay and today I ran into a quotation that, in my humble opinion, explains it perfectly. The author is Anatole France, a writer I love dearly and I think the following lines are not offensive and, thinking behind the words, everyone can see how true it is.
Also, what it has to say is something obvious - yet, when someone like France says it, it seems something brilliantly simple yet beautiful.
"Only men who are not interested in women are interested in women's clothes. Men who like women never notice what they wear."
