- Designers are losing their freedom of creativity? ⤵️ Дизайнеры теряют свободу слова = свободу креатива
Famous brands are again in the epicentre of scandals.
✔️ A part of the last Louis Vuitton men’s clothes collection was dedicated to Michael Jackson. A week later the documentary film Leaving Neverland which is the story of the pop icon sexual abuse came out.
LV announced they knew nothing at all about this movie and would no longer produce Jackson-inspired products as part of the 2019 autumn/winter collection.
✔️ Racism issues
Three scandals in one month alone - all of them relate to similarity with “blackface”- a form of theatrical make-up used predominantly by non-black performers to represent a caricature of a black person.
➖Gucci pulled a black balaclava sweater with red lips
➖Prada pulled figurines resembling black monkeys with outsized red lips
➖Katy Perry pulled black mules with a face on them
Let's not overreact, guys. 🙈 I’ll admit that every brand is supposed to have a high degree of responsibility towards society. But there’s no reason to look for a possible catch or provocation in every action 😬
What is your reaction to all this?
В центре скандалов снова известные бренды.
✔️ Часть последней мужской коллекции Louis Vuitton была посвящена Майклу Джексону. Через неделю вышел в прокат документальный фильм “Покидая Неверленд”, где рассказано о сексуальных преступлениях поп-легенды.
LV прокомментировали, что не знали о выходе фильма с таким содержанием и сняли эти вещи из коллекции. Но критика посыпалась от разъярённой публики, мол, как же вы не знали о таком.
Аж целых 3 за один месяц и все с отсылкой к схожести с "блэкфейс" - чёрный грим белых актёров, изображавших афроамериканцев:
➖Gucci выпустил чёрный свитер с высоким горлом и вырезом для губ
➖Брелок-фигурка в виде обезьянки от Prada
➖Мюли Katy Perry, украшенные деталями в виде глаз, носа и губ.
Ребята, хватит перегибать палку 🙈 Да, согласна, ответственность у брендов перед обществом большая, но нельзя же видеть в каждом действии подвох и провокацию 😬
Как вы отреагировали на происходящее?
- Curious as to which horrid, disgusting fashion scandal you most relate to? Take this quiz to figure out the worst about yourself! Link in bio.
- Designers & racism. How they react.
Today Riccardo Tisci, the new creative director of Burberry, has expressed an apology for the controversial “suicidal” look in London fashion show. The hoodie with the bizarre knot provoked angry responses among fashionistas and internet users around the world. Some even spoke about the lynching connotations. As we see, Tisci has genuinely admitted his mistake, promising to be more careful in the future.
Recently in the fashion world there have been a lot of scandals on the basis of racist/discriminatory connotations. Prada and it’s key chain design, resembling a blackface; Gucci and the “blackface” balaclava sweater; Dolce & Gabbana and the Chinese advert scandal. I’ve seen people both agreeing and disagreeing with the allegations - we all see different things. But! If most people are offended, then there ARE problems in the visual message of a product, and the creator must by all means address those issues. Burberry, Prada and Gucci have responded the public with respect. Gently, with no arrogance. Promising to work more for the improvement. That’s what the seller must do. At the end of the day, the customer is right. Besides, in 2019 there must be NO place for any discriminatory practices and all members of our society should be respected. Gucci has even done more, than just apologizing. They posted new job offerings, designed to actually WORK on their mistakes. The goal will be to work on the new strategies to bring more diversity in the fashion world and to hire the specialists from the underrepresented communities. What can I say? Applause.
Now let’s look at Dolce&Gabbana. How did they react? Instead of having a conversation with the customer (actually the largest customer group in the market), Stefano ends up calling China “a country of 💩” Then, running away from the problem saying he was “hacked”. Sorry Stefano, that’s not how business works in 2019. Don’t bite the hand which feeds you.
What do you think about all of that? Leave your comments!

- The fashion controversy that everyone’s been whispering about since yesterday and the screen-shots from #KhadijahShah’s Insta-story that have been running rampant ever since!
@khadijahshah placed designs from her own brand @elanofficial next to those by @suffusebysanayasir and pinpointed the brand for blatantly copying her countless times!
Plagiarism shouldn’t be allowed in an industry which is still growing, especially between two brands catering to the same market. Any thoughts, #SuffuseBySanaYasir? Or maybe not? 🤔

- I loved @dolcegabbana. I’ve supported them since I was in my teens. Though I enjoyed many of the pieces their brand had to offer, I will no longer be purchasing any more D&G. Stefano Gabbana has disgraced the brand. When people show you who they are, believe them.
@stefanogabbana how are you okay with pimping out an entire country’s culture and its people for profit, meanwhile thinking and saying these disgusting things about them? Check yourself into the the island of racists. No one wants to be near your kind. ✌🏼
Leaked dm exchanges are between @ michaelatranova & Stefano. Truth comes out.

- After D&G's scandal there is no better palate cleanser than Patrick Kelly's work, particularly this 🍁/❄️1986 dress. Kelly collected black memorabilia and re appropriated racist imagery into his work. He was the FIRST US designer to be admitted into the Chambre Syndicale (the exclusive Paris organization which regulates haute couture). #patrickkelly #hautecouture #1980sfashion #fashionscandal
- Dolce & Gabbana 🌷/🌞2013. The scandal this week was one of many for d&g. Supposedly these "blackamoor" earrings from 2013 were referencing the Moors conquest of Sicily in the 9th century. Gross..... #dolcegabbana #fashionscandal
- @manfredthierrymugler accuses @balmain of copying his designs at @parisfashionweek. Thierry Mugler took to Instagram to accuse Balmain’s @olivier_rousteing of plagiarism.
Using the app’s ‘Stories’ feature, Mugler compared several pieces from Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2019, showcased last week at Paris Fashion Week, to his own designs from 1979, 1991, 1998 and 1990. Captions read “probably a tribute?”, “Seriously?”, “Really?” and “No comment”. The images were quickly shared by thousands of social media users, who were quick to note that Balmain’s description of the collection, sent to the press after the fashion show, did not mention a tribute to Mugler
