Gucci Slammed For Putting Turbans On White Models
Just because you are a “high fashion” brand doesn’t give you carte blanche to wantonly pilfer people’s culture.
According to DailyMail, Gucci is under heavy fire from Sikhs who are deeply offended that the company sent their white models onto the runway wearing turbans in a recent show at Milan Fashion Week.
Canadian model/actor Avan Jogia encouraged all POC to speak out against such cultural appropriation.
There are gang of brown folks who feel just like Avan.
Thus far, Gucci has made no comment regarding the controversy. No shock there.
