If you could be friends with anyone in the fashion industry, who would you choose?

I'll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour, I'll be there for you, like I've been there before! Friends teach you a lot in life - about themselves, and whether you want to hear it or not, about yourselves. Life is a game best played in good...

"I love meeting and learning from everyone. I'm still the new girl, I have a lot to learn." Amanda Murphy

"I wish I could have been friends with Yves Saint-Laurent, I feel like I have a lot in common with him. It seems he felt like a paradox and that he wasn't connected to his time. That's how I often feel. Aymeline Valade

"I think to be true friends you need to get to know each other very well. I like to think that I could be friends with Riccardo Tisci." Dalianah Arekion Fernandez

"Muccia Prada. Besides being an outstanding designer she seems to be an interesting person who thinks beyond fashion. Or Karl Lagerfeld. He has done so much that I admire! " Hedvig Palm

"That's a hard one. There's so many individuals that I would want to be friends with." Joan Smalls

"It would be really cool if I could have been friends with Coco Chanel. She is such an influential person in fashion and had such ambition and determination. Being friends with someone that iconic would be pretty awesome!" Juliana Shurig

"Anna Wintour, because she's a queen. It'd be amazing just to know what she's thinking." Kayley Chabot

"Perhaps Karl Lagerfeld... I mean he just looks cool with his ponytail and his sunglasses and the way he always wears a suit. Yeah." Maggie Maurer

"I'm friends with a lot of people I've met whilst working, I just enjoy meeting new people." Sam Rollinson
