Let’s discuss about revolting clothing collections! In September, model Tess Holliday called out online retailer Revolve after it advertised a sweatshirt with the words “Being fat is not beautiful it’s an excuse” printed on the front. The body-positive advocate shared a screenshot of the garment on Twitter, writing, “LOLLLLL @REVOLVE y’all are a mess.” Others online questioned how the shirt made it onto the website in the first place. According to Revolve, which released a statement to People following the controversy, the shirt was part of a collaboration with LPA that was meant to provide “commentary on the modern day ‘normality’ of cyberbullying and the shared desire to create a community for those most affected by the epidemic.”
John Galliano’s Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2000 Collection, “Haute Homeless”, For John Galliano’s Dior Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2000 show, he created a collection based on the homeless Parisians he encountered while running along the Seine. To that end, he presented a bricolage collection of shredded and tattered couture garments that had found objects like mini whiskey bottles and kitchen utensils strung along the models’ waists. Many found homelessness to be a distasteful theme for a haute couture collection where dresses can go for upwards of $50,000 and the resulting criticism prompted Galliano to apologize for upsetting so many, stating that it was not meant to offend but rather celebrate the style of the homeless people he encountered in Paris.
Stefano Gabbana Defends Melania Trump, Time and time again, Melania Trump was spotted wearing Dolce & Gabbana looks at major events. And while other designers shy away from claiming responsibility when Melania wears their work, Stefano Gabbana did quite the opposite. He took to his Instagram account to praise the First Lady, a move that several fans of the brand were not happy with.
Rather than casting traditional models in her Spring/Summer 2009 show, the notoriously zany Brit designer Westwood chose to use members of the Roma community to showcase her gypsy-inspired designs at Milan Fashion Week. At the time, tensions between gypsies and Italians were running especially high, so it was a problematic and provocative choice. The collection and the concept of the show were both criticized by a member of the city’s council, Tiziano Maiolo, who said: “I think the designer has a romantic notion about gypsies that is 100 years out of date. If she wants, I will take her on a tour of the nomad camps. These people do not want to work, they live by thieving and they have no respect for the law.” But once again it seems like fashion succeeded in putting its finger right on the trickiest aspects of contemporary social life. Questionable, or exquisite taste? Provocateur campaigner-designer Westwood would have you decide.
