Donatella Versace on Critics Who Call Her Clothes "Tacky"

Donatella Versace Doesn't Mind If People Call Her Designs "Tacky"

Donatella Versace isn't concerned with critics who call her clothing tacky, so long as they're calling it something in the first place.

"First of all, any reaction is a good thing," said the designer in an interview with Susanna Lau of Style Bubble. "The people who struggle are those who have no reaction at all. They are too safe. Tacky — never mind. What is tacky? What is chic?"

And while critics didn't call Versace's Spring 2013 collection tacky or chic, they didn't give it negative reviews either. Tim Blanks of Style.com said the dresses "had the carefree sensuality of festival gear," and Cathy Horyn of The New York Times called Versace's theme of lightness "an interesting idea."
