Gucci creates diversity campaign post-blackface controversy
Fashion brands are always caught in some controversy and Gucci is no different. Just a couple of weeks ago, they were under fire for debuting a balaclava sweater allegedly portraying blackface imagery, but now, they are trying to bounce back. Called the Gucci Changemakers program, the initiative aims to create support for students who are venturing into fashion. But that's not all. According to the fashion house, the program also aims to strengthen connections and create opportunities for African-American and communities of people of colour, in general. Good start to make amends, don't you think?
