ショーのステージを歩いたモデルのひとり、Liz Kenndeyさんは、首吊りの縄をアクセサリーにしたバーバリーの無神経さを厳しく批判し、自分がそのようなショーに参加したことを「恥じている」という。






彼女はバーバリーと、そのクリエイティブ部門を統括するRiccardo Tisci氏の名を挙げて、手厳しく批判。


Riccardo Tisciとバーバリーの人間が考えていることは理解しがたい。首吊りの縄にしか見えないものをモデルの首に掛けてステージに上がらせるなどということを、なぜできるのか。

@burberry @riccardotisci17 Suicide is not fashion. It is not glamorous nor edgy and since this show is dedicated to the youth expressing their voice, here I go. Riccardo Tisci and everyone at Burberry it is beyond me how you could let a look resembling a noose hanging from a neck out on the runway. How could anyone overlook this and think it would be okay to do this especially in a line dedicated to young girls and youth. The impressionable youth. Not to mention the rising suicide rates world wide. Let’s not forget about the horrifying history of lynching either. There are hundreds of ways to tie a rope and they chose to tie it like a noose completely ignoring the fact that it was hanging around a neck. A massive brand like Burberry who is typically considered commercial and classy should not have overlooked such an obvious resemblance. I left my fitting extremely triggered after seeing this look (even though I did not wear it myself). Feeling as though I was right back where I was when I was going through an experience with suicide in my family. Also to add in they briefly hung one from the ceiling (trying to figure out the knot) and were laughing about it in the dressing room. I had asked to speak to someone about it but the only thing I was told to do was to write a letter. I had a brief conversation with someone but all that it entailed was “it’s fashion. Nobody cares about what’s going on in your personal life so just keep it to yourself” well I’m sorry but this is an issue bigger than myself. A look so ignorantly put together and a situation so poorly handled. I am ashamed to have been apart of the show. #burberry.
