Band of Outsiders designer Scott Sternberg has opened up on his feelings towards the fashion industry in a new interview – and it’s not all positive! In fact, Scott seems to have a bone to pick with how the industry is run in general and doesn’t understand why things are run the way they are currently. This includes catwalk shows which he thinks are becoming a waste of time. He said that now that his label is more successful, he also has more employees which doesn’t make sense to his either because everything takes longer:

 "It doesn't make sense. I have 26 employees. I used to do everything myself. It was 10 times easier and more enjoyable. Now I have to socialise with all these people and tell them what I want, which would be much easier to do myself."

Sternberg also takes aim at seasoned designer Tom Ford for the way he chooses to conduct his business because he doesn’t see why the designer would want to open new stores or bring his collections to the catwalk for the first time. He said that he must not be on the same page as Ford:

"[Ford] launched fragrance and eyewear first and then beauty, make-up - all of it. Now these are the tertiary things that you do. Actually, that other people do with your brand so that you make a lot of money. Now I'm like, 'Oh my god, he's so fucking smart,' because he doesn't have to do all this crap, waste all this fabric, make all these clothes that nobody is ever going to buy that's essentially for a few stylists to shoot and is part of the 'dog and pony show'. He just cut right to the chase. What a genius… And then all of the sudden, he's doing menswear and opening these ridiculous stores that are so out of touch to me with where consumers are at these days, even the luxury consumer... And now, he's showing on the runway. So I don't know, I guess we're not on the same page, Tom Ford and I."
