NEW YORK — Marc Jacobs has apologized for his response to criticism over showcasing his models in dreadlocks during the final day of New York Fashion Week.
The white designer was criticized on social media after his mostly white lineup of models was outfitted with rainbow dreadlocks for his Thursday show. Some accused Jacobs of appropriating black culture.
A screengrab shows Jacobs responding to his critics on Instagram by saying it was “funny” that they don’t “criticize women of colour for straightening their hair.” Jacobs also wrote that he doesn’t see colour or race and that he was “sorry to read that so many people are narrow minded.”
Jacobs apologized Sunday on Instagram for what he called “the lack of sensitivity unintentionally expressed by my brevity.”
