No more excuses: Milan Fashion Week adds BLM event to calendar 

Sep 12, 2020 10:11 IST

Five Black-led Italian brands, discovered by the founder of the independent AFRO Fashion Week Milano, will make a digital presentation during the hybrid physical-digital Milan Fashion Week, the country's fashion council has announced. Additionally, the week will open with a closed-door working group of key council members under the banner 'Do Black Lives Matter in Italian Fashion?' The Italian fashion council's only Black designer Stella Jean has hailed the inclusion as a 'breakthrough.' Fashion houses including Prada, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Marni have all had to apologize for racially-charged gaffes over recent seasons, indicating the lack of diversity in the industry, Jean said.
