Winds of change are blowing in the fashion industry, as Chanel emerges as one of the first few brands to hire a diversity officer to enhance its ongoing efforts and commitment towards being an inclusive and diverse brand.
The French maison follows in the footsteps of luxury brands including Gucci and Burberry, which are roping in people for similar jobs. Prada has similarly been adapting, recently launching its Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council.
This development comes as a part of the industry’s collective mission of filling the void, following a series of accusations and criticism of fashion houses for creations that have been deemed culturally inappropriate.
Hopefully this is a sign of things to come with other luxury brands.
