Wednesday NEWSRUSH Featuring Digital London Fashion Week.
It’s CULTED with your Wednesday NEWSRUSH.
First up, former Condé Nast employees have taken to twitter to detail their experiences of racism whilst working for the company.
This comes after the brand posted a statement claiming to be “dedicated to creating a diverse, inclusive and equitable workplace”, which was met with Black employees detailing their experiences of “racism”, “micro-aggressions” and “testing from white counterparts”.
In other news, Banksy has proposed that the statue commemorating slave trader Edward Colston, which was pulled down by protesters in Bristol, be replaced by “life size bronze statues of protesters in the act of pulling him down.” In Banksy’s words it would be “a famous day commemorated”.
Next up, London Fashion Week is going digital and launching a new online hub containing virtual showrooms, interactive videos and podcasts. But, many of London’s biggest rising stars, like Craig Green and Matty Bovan, will not be involved.
And finally Harper’s Bazaar has named Samira Nasr as its new Editor-In-Chief. More on this later.
That’s all for this morning it’s Sam with CULTED.
