It's only a matter of time before Gucci, Dior and other workers also receive such training, it was said. In the past year, the committee, which is responsible for enforcing human rights laws in the city, has investigated the issue, and this is the first time it has focused in this way on images and products of fashion brands. Prada has also pledged to bring about internal change, including assisting minority communities whether financially or in employing workers, all with the consent of external oversight over the next two years, which will monitor its progress. Reactions meanwhile are divided: a little too late, was written in response to an article published on Instagram by the New York Times. This is just the beginning, it was written in another, one meeting is not enough to change thinking. Shaneir Azi, the civil rights lawyer who in 2018 in a furious tweet on Twitter provoked a heated discussion about the black figures placed in Prada's showcase, tweeted immediately upon publishing the news that she thanked the committee for its response to "Black Faces" and the call for change. “This is what commitment looks like. After a year of struggle, Prada agrees to long-term structural changes. " Over the years, stereotypical and racist images have provoked great outrage. Prada and Gucci, as well as the English brand Barbary that put on a runway at a 2019 winter show for a model wearing a hoodie sweatshirt with a rope tied as a hanging rope, are perhaps the last fashion houses to stir up a storm, but there were many more. Accusations of racism were leveled, social networks stormed, and civil rights lawyers tweeted on Twitter about the “do not” boundaries of fashion companies. There have also been cases where fashion companies have paid a certain consumer price for the racism demonstration. For example, in the case of Dolce & Gabbana, who in 2016 released a stormy model called "Slave Sandals," the brand later released a commercial that hurt Chinese sentiment, calling for the brand to close, return goods, and cancel a show planned in Shanghai. Three years earlier, in 2014, the Zara chain had taken down a striped T-shirt for children with a yellow Star of David badge on the shelves. In all cases even though the companies apologized, said it was not their intention, took off the offensive items off the shelves, it was not enough, as the use of stereotypes was repeated again and again in the various brands. The binding decision that came out of New York may be a drop in the ocean, but it may also be the beginning of a long road. Gucci black sweater. To the left are Prada's dolls.
