London, Feb 24 (IANS) German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld cannot stand designers who don’t draw as he says they’re being “dishonest” about their abilities.The 77-year-old designer spends a lot of his free time sketching down ideas for his new collections and hates it when people who claim to be designers put their name to something they haven’t etched, reports

“I sketch when I’m alone. I can sketch for hours. That’s when I dream and those dreams become collections. I cannot stand designers who cannot sketch, who send out sketches done by others that they sign their name to,” he said.

“It’s so dishonest. Just because you can drape on a model or mannequin doesn’t mean you are a designer. You must sketch,” he added.
