Quote of the Week: Amanda Eliasch on fashion

Writer and filmmaker Amanda Eliasch provides the best summing up of the Twitter storm that has enveloped Dolce and Gabanna

 

With Elton John attacking Dolce and Gabanna over their views on “synthetic babies” and then carrying a bag featuring their company’s logo in the days that followed, the debate over their remarks has raged on. Whilst Madonna “weighed in” and Ricky Martin “blasted” the pair, amongst the lone voices of reason was the writer and filmmaker Amanda Eliasch.

Eliasch took to Facebook to comment on the row on Friday and commented:

 

“I have a huge dilemma since Galliano bitched about the Jews and I chopped up his clothes, and there is no more Dior for me. Vivienne Westwood slagged off England so the tartan went in the bin and Dolce and Gabanna talked about synthetic children. Thank goodness for Zara otherwise I would be stark naked”.

 

All at The Steeple Times say amen to that.

  1. the only problem with this is that last year Zara did a T shirt for children with stripes and a yellow star.. So that leaves ASDA and Saint Laurent. Could the heads of these organisation be a little more intelligent.?

  2. Are you a supporter of the campaign to Find Madeleine Amanda? Please use your resources to help poor Gerry and Kate McCann in their efforts to find their beloved daughter Madeleine McCann. The Steeple Times is a shameful news title as it does nothing. Do not join them in being so lackadaisical. Support Find Madeleine. Support dear Gerry and Kate.

  3. Find Madeleine is indeed a worthwhile cause which has had lots of help. I am sure it is entirely obvious where she is like all these terrible things in life, it is usually on the doorstep. When I was eight I was raped, it was obvious, it was a man in the village under my mothers nose. He did it when I was sent to collect eggs from his wife. I am sure that the police know or suspect the people involved and just can’t find the missing link. Ask Mr Steeples kindly and I am sure he will help too

  4. Being an international fashion, style icon and a cult myself; I have found that being even handed and tolerant to those less fortunate, to have paid off handsomely throughout my long and illustrious career

  5. Amanda Eliasch, I too am so sorry to hear of what happened to you. My very sincere sympathy for this appalling experience and for the lack of justice.

  6. I was going to make a joke about Primark still being an option but given Amand’s brave revelation I would just like to give her my sympathy and support.
