Well known fashion designer Donna Karan openly asked if the women who are sexual harassed or sexual assaulted are 'looking for trouble', according to the New York Times. In the article, she calls Harvey Weinstein and his wife, 'wonderful people'.
Donna Karan asked:
“How do we present ourselves as women?” Ms. Karan said on the red carpet at the CineFashion Film Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday evening. “What are we asking? Are we asking for it? By presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality? What are we throwing out to our children today? About how to dance, how to perform and what to wear? How much should they show?”
Donna Karan then claimed, that her statement was not just about Harvey Weinstein.
“I don’t think it’s only Harvey Weinstein. I don’t think we’re only looking at him,” Ms. Karan said. “I think we’re looking at a world much deeper than him. I think he’s being looked at now as a symbol.” In the interview, she restated that thought: “It’s not Harvey Weinstein, you look at everything all over the world today, you know, and how women are dressing and what they’re asking by just presenting themselves the way they do. What are they asking for? Trouble.”
In the article, she calls Harvey Weinstein a 'wonderful person'.
Ms. Karan did not defend Mr. Weinstein, but she did speak about Mr. Weinstein and his wife, Georgina Chapman, a designer of the fashion label Marchesa, directly: “I think they’re wonderful people. Harvey has done some amazing things.”
