PRADA To Employees: Fu*k Y’all Fat Ugly OLD Hoes… Is This What They Think Is Hot?

- By Bossip Staff

The models in some of Prada’s ad campaigns look downright scary, but yet one of the label’s retail managers alleges she was told to get rid of employees who were “old, fat, ugly, disgusting or not having the Prada look”. Details under the hood.

Rina Bovrisse, a senior retail manager, who oversaw 500 staff in 40 stores across Japan, has launched a discrimination and harassment case against the Italian fashion label in Tokyo’s industrial tribunal courts.

Her allegations focus on an incident in May last year when she claims that Davide Sesia, the CEO of Prada Japan, allegedly asked her to “eliminate” around 15 managerial staff he described as “old, fat, ugly, disgusting or not having the Prada look,” following a tour of 40 stores.

Immediately after his demands, human resources reportedly notified 13 members of staff with devotional transfer orders due to poor sales, according to Ms Bovrisse, who disclosed details of the case in a Japan Times interview.

Ms Bovrisse alleges that she herself was later summoned to a meeting and informed that Mr Sesia reportedly wanted her to “change her hairstyle, to lose weight” because he was “ashamed of Ms Bovrisse’s ugliness, so he doesn’t want visitors from Italy to see her”.

Ms Bovrisse, who has 18 years experience working in the international fashion industry, was placed on involuntary leave last November and launched her legal case the following month.

Describing why she had launched the claim, Ms Bovrisse said: “My responsibility is to protect hard-working women and make sure their working environment is safe.”

SMH… Forget the Devil Wears Prada — seems more like the Devil IS Prada!!!

The fashion business is notoriously shallow so we can’t say we’re surprised by this, but what does this message send to Prada customers? Not everyone who wears Prada is young, beautiful and thin after all!

    When you go into a business like that, why are you surprised when people look at your body and image??? Hollywood, modeling, advertising – all are based on looks. If you can’t take what you have to dish out to the public, you need a new career. Don’t try to sell me on “to be thin, have the latest hairstyle, and wear fashionable clothing is to be considered beautiful” in your ads if your not.

    I call it divine karma that you lose your job over the same garbage your trying to sell to the public.

    If her responsibility is to protect hard-working women and make sure their working environment is safe, then why did she wait until she was placed involuntary leave before she filed suit?

    I was thinking the exact same thing. 18 years you know she’s fired plenty of young girls for the exact same thing.

  • VA666

    Am I missing something? It sounds like the woman in the article didn’t care until it affected her. She even participated in eliminating some of the staff herself. Now she wants sympathy? huh?

  • Ms.ViVi

    She didnt have a problem following their rules until it turned on her and they said she didnt cut it! HMMM…well!

    Sad but true…lmfao!

  • Caramel Cat™

    Forget this heffa, she didn’t care who it was affecting before…but now that she got let go for the same reason it’s all of a sudden a big deal…hypocrital bytch…

  • binary star

    So she had no problem when she was told to fire 15 other women because of their looks but when it became her turn she wants to pretend she’s a crusader of justice?

    COSIGN 100%. This woman didn’t care about the “injustice” of it all until they shamed her and tried to put her out. Now she wants to cry foul. Puh-lease! Lady, you should have taken a stand at the first mention of this. Instead of only taking a stand when it affected you directly. People grow OLD, people lose their GOOD LOOKS, and then unfortunately if those same people happen to work for PRADA they get FIRED.

    Too bad. So sad.
