Burberry Apologizes for Upsetting Noose Hoodie in London Fashion Week Show

On Sunday during London Fashion Week, designer Riccardo Tisci debuted a nautical-themed fall/winter 2019 runway show for Burberry in which a model wore a brown hoodie with ties at the neck that resembled a noose.


This appearance was criticized by many, as a result of which Burberry’s CEO, Marco Gobbetti, issued a response: “We are deeply sorry for the distress caused by one of the products that featured in our A/W 2019 runway collection. Though the design was inspired by the marine theme that ran throughout the collection, it was insensitive and we made a mistake.”
