Blackface Fashion Faux-Pas

Blackface Fashion Scandal: Prada, Gucci, Katy Perry

Following Prada’s rather controversial monkey doll and it’s speedy removal from displays, Gucci missed the message and released a Blackface turtleneck. Somehow, Katy Perry managed to join in on the scandal, and created a pair of slippers. At first, I wasn’t too familiar with the imagery although remember learning about it in school, but at this point we should all be well aware of it as it’s not just a topic in the fashion world, but one extending into the political world and certainly mainstream media after Virginia Governor Ralph Northam came under fire for a yearbook photo.
