Hello there Mr . Dandy doll, what fashion trend are you following today?
 
Patrick
I don't follow trends.I march to the beat to my own drum.
 
David

You are considered an icon for your unique style and your passion for design. Where does the inspiration come from?

Patrick
My style comes from watching old Hollywood movies. Inspired by leading men such as Clark Gable, Carry Grant and Fred Astaire.

Patrick & Merle Ginsberg


 
David

You have an identical twin brother. Do the two of you share the same passion for style?
 
Patrick
We do, he loves fashion but his style is more conservative.
 
David

You have been at the top of the fashion scene in this country since the late 70's. Do you feel classic style always wins out?
 
Patrick
I think a classic style always wins out. You can always use classic style by using colors and patterns mixing pock dots and strips  making it your own. Casual never wins and casual Friday should be a day everyone skips.
 
David
Fashion design is the art of the application of design and aesthetics to clothing and accessories. It is influenced by cultural and social attitudes, and has varied over time and place. What is the mental process you go through to create your style?
 
Patrick
What my eyes are attracted to visually, then from that I go through putting it together.

David

What advice would you give to designers to help them succeed?
 
Patrick
I think luck makes designers succeed, perseverance studying your craft and most importantly history will make you succeed
 
David
What do you take into consideration when designing a garment that is functional as well as aesthetically pleasing?
 
Patrick
Functional isn't always important for me, it's more visionary. I am not going to wear something unless I am pleased with how I look in it.  Some people by a pair of shoes and wear them because there comfortable. I buy them because I love the way they look.

David
What do you think of Sacha Walckhoff, becoming the new creative director at Christian Lacroix?
 
Patrick
I think it's great, very happy the name is being carried on. Lets see what happens.
 
David
A great deal of the American Public who are not part of the fashion elite got to know you on Bravo's "Launch My Line." Give me an example of something dishy or dramatic that we didn't see on screen.
 
Patrick
Everything dramatic that you soon on the show is the only drama that happened. I am a Dandy not a diva!

Amanda Testa, Dandy Doll, Grace Edwards


 
David
Many celebrities, like P Diddy, have their own clothing lines even though they have no formal education in fashion design. This must be really frustrating for designers who have spent years developing their craft. Do you have any motivating advice for these "starving" designers?
 
Patrick
Don't give up and ignore that. It's just all business using a name to sell. Work at your craft. work really hard and it will all pay off.
 
David
What are your 5 top fashion no no's?
 
Patrick

I don't believe in the word no, when it comes to fashion a no can be a yes the next day!
 
David
What do you think of Joan Rivers Giuliana Rancic and Khloe Kardashian Odom doing the fashion police on E!? I once heard someone refer to them as the ugly duck fashion-less squad.
 
Patrick
I don't watch them and I won't take their advice. I am my own critic, and keep it to yourself.
 
David
What are your last words to the readers?
 
Patrick
Follow your dream and be who you want to be. Listen to your heart and don't let anyone alter your decisions.

Patrick McDonald "Fashion Icon"


 
Patrick is a man who places particular importance upon physical appearance, refined language, and leisurely hobbies, pursued with the appearance of nonchalance in a cult of Self! which in one word means He is absolutely a Dandy and I absolutely love his unique original style, for all you wanna be dandy's take it from me, a Dandy in training! Get a clue: be you and once you discover you, you will feel it in your heart beat. making your fashion sense created your style. Then you will feel free in clothes that express you.
