Madonna made people up and down the country wince as she was accidentally dragged down a flight of stairs by her cloak at last week's BRIT Awards.
"Madonna, as we know, is very difficult," the designer told Associated Press.
"This cape had a hook and she wanted a tie, and she wasn't able to open it with her hands. That's all there is to it."
Madonna sustained whiplash after the fall. "My two lovely Japanese dancers, they basically strangled me off the stage. I had two choices, I could either be strangled or fall, and I chose to fall," she told Jonathan Ross the day after.
