Dolce & Gabbana Issue a Filmed Apology (Business of Fashion)
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana sat down for an official filmed apology after racist messages on Instagram caused their brand’s massive show in China to be shut down. “In the face of our cultural misunderstanding, we hope that we can earn your forgiveness,” Dolce said. The controversy began when the brand posted promotional videos to its social media that were viewed as culturally insensitive.
