donatella at the new york times times talk series where she made that quote. (

worldwide - wow! a designer turned down h+m for a diffusion line!? we all remember the near riots that collections for h&m by stella mccartney, viktor and rolf and most recently roberto cavalli caused. apparently the mass retailer approached versace designer, donatella versace about similar collaborations and she said no. according to new york magazine, this is what she had to say about it: "I respect everyone who does it, but the reason I didn't do it is because I work very hard to put the Versace line in the luxury section. I think to put the Versace line in H&M would confuse the brand." you know what? i respect her gangsta.
