"If I could swap places with anyone for a day, it would be as the dashing Tony Duquette. We shared a mutual love of beauty and creating dreams... Duquette was the original Renaissance man--proof that you can have it and do it all. His life was a dream and everything in it was beautiful. He had the Midas touch--he was a set designer, interior decorator, artist, jewelry designer, and costume designer. Tony achieved so much in his lifetime that his name reverberates with as much frisson and freshness today as it did when he was alive." - John Galliano
