"Growing up in Malaysia I had an idyllic childhood. Penang was a very quiet, relaxing city to grow up in."

"I was in a boat or on the quayside, fishing or swimming...I was always on my bike cycling past Chinese temples, Buddhist temples, Mosques."

"Malaysia is a real melting pot of a place to experience the rich, cultural diversity of the local Chinese, Indian and Malay communities who lived there. That colourful multi-cultural landscape started to influence me strongly..."

"If you have a creative streak you are certain to have your eyes opened to new experiences should you travel there."

Matthew Williamson on India

"Travel is not about splashing out loads of cash. Go at your own speed; work out your own limits. "

"The greatest influence to my work has been travelling to India...I've been there nearly 50 times now and I even set up a factory in Delhi and Mumbai where all the beading was done."

"The first time I flew in to Mumbai it was like a scene from Slumdog Millionaire; I remember just seeing a sea of shanty dwellings beneath me. I was both scared but then also inspired by the place."

Jerry Hall on Venice

"Some people need to climb canyons, some people need to dive deep but for others sometimes just standing still will give you the same adrenalin rush."

"If you want something jaw dropping, something extraordinary just stand alone – in the pushing crowd - on the Rialto Bridge in Venice."

"Take a breath, hold your space, then look down the Grand Canal. See Canaletto. See inspiration. Believe me, it won't leave you."
