Philip Treacy gave a fabulous interview in The Sunday Observer this past weekend. Many topics were covered including his feelings on the awful things that had been said about the hat he designed for Princess Beatrice to wear to the Royal Wedding this past April. The quote above was his response.
Fair enough you are sticking up for your design but why bring the bloggers into it? I do believe there were much harsher things actually said in print. I also recall the Guardian advertising the mockery that was happening online by posting a picture the hats photoshopped onto the officials in President Obama’s situation room.
Someone explain to me why print gets a “go free” card while bloggers continue to take the hit?
