Your Met Gala Recap Is Here
Off-White Is Just That . . . . . WHITE
Creator of the brand Off-White, Virgil Abloh, is under the microscope about his definition of diversity. Abloh posted an image to his social media account that showed the “Off-White team”. The photo showed not one African American person. Let’s also keep in mind that many of the styles he steals are from African American young designers, but that is another conversation. This caused some fire from the fans of the brand who pointed out that this brand does not believe in diversity. Here is how he defended himself:
"My design team is diverse as the world is big. The video shown was an Off-White™ dinner at the headquarters in the city of Milan, Italy. This party was to celebrate the hard work of the local Italian team."
Working for an Italian brand, I do understand how this photo can be misinterpreted or look, however, looking into the Off-White CEO past, it looks like he has been the main character in a Get Out movie. It is really sad when we get into these positions of power we do not create opportunities for others that are like us.
