Gucci Might be Teaching Us An Important Lesson In Fashion About Race
The Powerful Voice Of Fashion Should Not Be Underestimated!
A couple of days ago Gucci posted several videos in their Instagram, interviewing a series of black models. In the caption they would hashtag #GucciPreFall17 that might give us a silent hint, that it's time to make an important statement in the old Italian fashion house.
Gucci's design profile has always been traditionally innovative and have been designing for the economical elite in society. And if we look at their target customer through time it is relevant to take up the subject of race to discussion.
There's been a healthy development in the fashion industry the last couple of years dealing with gender roles and body ideals. We will continue to debate those topics, but finally we have broken the silence about intersectional racism in fashion.
