Milan Fashion Week opened with a spotlight on diversity and inclusion as Italian-Haitian designer Stella Jean protested the Italian National Fashion Chamber for not doing enough to support designers living in Italy. Jean launched a 10-day hunger strike, which ended after she received written assurances from the Chamber. The Chamber’s Fashion Hub is also hosting an event highlighting designers promoted by U.S.-based Blanc Magazine, as part of the new project, Blanc Spaces, which is intended to help creatives of color and across genders connect with major fashion brands and retailers. Diesel is also promoting sex positivity with its new collection, which includes a capsule collection with Durex condoms and the giveaway of 300,000 boxes of condoms in stores around the world. The collection also featured sheer panels and chains, and was accompanied by the front-row appearance of the mismatched boss and assistant from the TV series “White Lotus”. Milan Fashion Week is set to continue with the Black Carpet Awards, which will recognize diversity across sectors.
