Thursday NEWSRUSH Featuring Netflix “Black Lives Matter” Genre.
It’s CULTED with your Thursday NEWSRUSH.
First up, following allegations of racism in the Condé Nast workplace, Anna Wintour has taken “full responsibility” for the company’s race-related mistakes.
In an internal email, Wintour apologised stating that “Vogue has not found enough ways to elevate and give space to Black editors, writers, photographers, designers and other creators.” She also apologised for “publishing images or stories that have been hurtful or intolerant.”
Next up, Netflix has created a Black Lives Matter section in its genre tab which contains around 50 titles relating to discrimination, racial injustice, and systemic racism.
In related news, Sephora have become the first brand to take Aurora James’ 15% pledge, which asks retailers to commit to buying 15% of their inventory from Black-owned businesses.
Sephora said it will start with “a long-term plan diversifying [its] supply chain and building a system that creates a better platform for Black-owned brands to grow”.
And to round off today, Inditex, the world’s largest fashion brand which owns Zara and Bershka, has reported its first drop in sales. The company reported a net loss of $465M for February through April.
That’s all for this morning it’s Sam with CULTED.
