British label vows to embrace diversity and inclusion after anger over knot design
Burberry has pledged to give its employees mandatory training and increase its support for the Samaritans after being widely condemned for putting a jumper with a “noose” design on the catwalk.
A week after the luxury fashion house apologised for the hoodie, which ties in the shape of a noose, its chief executive, Marco Gobbetti, said the brand would embrace diversity and inclusion through a series of initiatives. “We are not where we need or want to be,” he said in a statement posted on Instagram.
