On 10 May 1999, he publicly vowed not to make any more predictions if Mir did not crash into Paris on 11 August 1999.

He used unconventional material such as metal, paper, and plastic for his metal couture and outlandish and flamboyant designs.  For the debut of his namesake brand in 1966, he presented "Manifesto: 12 unwearable dresses in contemporary materials".
