Isabel Marant has said that she wouldn't be where she is today if she ran her business the way politicians run their countries.

The French designer told Vogue, "Sometimes I was to be a politician. If politicians put the same amount of energy that we put into our collections... I think designers could be great politicians.

"If I was running my company the same way that my government runs my country, I wouldn't be where I am now. We are trapped into a system where it's difficult to find your own path."

Marant also opened up about her need to define herself when she was younger, "My mother was a German model, she was super pretty and I was an ugly little girl. I had a beautiful brother and everybody would say to him, 'What a nice girl' even though he was a boy and nobody would look at me.

"I was a tough little girl. In hindsight, I think I had to define myself in some way. So I turned to music and was very influenced by that."
