Pat Field Clarifies Her "In Praise of Galliano" Remarks
Patricia Field is a legend who's done the clothes for Sex and the City, Ugly Betty, and basically all of downtown.
Earlier today, I ran her official statement about the John Galliano anti-Semitism brouhaha, Pat stating:
"Beauty, intelligence, and energy would describe John as I know him. Where in this trilogy could one find hate, I ask you!
"My second question is: What exactly did he say? And the third is: What is really going on here??"
Well, we all went bananas over this defense, but Pat Field has contacted me with an explanation.
Here it is, in her words:
"Before I throw myself on the band wagon of 'off with his head,' my education in school and in life has taught me to get all of the facts in detail.
"Those facts are not out as I see them.
"Just for the record, I don't like Hitler and Iike Jewish people as I like all people from everywhere.
"I want the opportunity to hear what John has to say, particularly about the one-year old video that was sold to The Sun.
"Is this part ok?
"I repeat, I am not anti-Semitic and I am a personal friend of John Galliano's."
