Rag & Bone Pulls NYFW Show From The Shed at Hudson Yards

NEW YORK (WWD) An image from Rag & Bone’s photo project. Rag & Bone is the second designer brand to change venues from Hudson Yards following backlash against real estate developer Stephen Ross — whose Related Cos. is behind the new development — for hosting a fundraiser for President Donald Trump at his Hamptons home on Friday, with tickets going for up to $250,000 each.

The brand was originally confirmed to host its show at The Shed at Hudson Yards, an arts center that is reportedly set to be the new home of New York Fashion Week. According to a source close to the brand, Rag & Bone is no longer presenting its spring 2020 collection at The Shed, and its new location has not yet been confirmed.

Dear Mr. Ford, Mr. Kolb, members and board of the CFDA, Effective immediately, I regretfully but with great certainty, cancel my membership to the Council of Fashion Designers of America. After many years of membership I will no longer participate if a woman that funds the current administration remains on the board. I will no longer be a part of what seems to be allowing a pay for play, money over merit arrangement with someone that clearly wants to advance an agenda that is hurting many businesses large and small with this trade war. I do not feel her views speak for me as a member and I will not allow her to make decisions on my behalf. I thought about this decision well, and although I appreciated support in the beginnings of my career, I no longer feel the membership represents me. I will fondly remember hearing I was nominated for a CFDA Award, I will gratefully remember my time as a CFDA/VOGUE Fashion Fund nominee, and I will always be thankful for your ear, Steven. However, after emailing you about concerns as to the board seat of Mrs. Ross I was met with a response that felt very much like the pacifying public statements from SoulCycle and Equinox. I was told “not our problem” and to focus my energies elsewhere. So I will. The annual membership dues and future high priced tickets to awards will be spent fighting what this administration is destroying, specifically equal rights and climate change. Yesterday, while Mrs. Ross was putting finishing touches on her Trump fundraiser, I was making sure my sobbing housekeeper had her entire family’s documents in order, a woman with 3 years citizenship living in fear. It is not enough to post rainbows on your Instagram feed. Do something. As a side note, the Fashion Fund is irrelevant unless it is entirely made up of sustainable designers. FALLON JEWELRY

The news comes after Prabal Gurung also pulled his upcoming spring 2020 show from Hudson Yards, following the backlash against Ross. Gurung took to his Twitter account in a 10-tweet thread to express his outrage against Ross’ support of the president, also stating that he hadn’t confirmed hosting his show at […]

PLEASANTON (The Fashion Law) — In late December 2016, Christopher Sampino filed a lawsuit against Versace. He claimed that during his two week tenure at the Italian fashion brand’s outlet store in Pleasanton, California, he was harassed as a direct result of his mixed race and ultimately fired after he complained about such treatment.

The lawsuit was the latest in a string of cases filed against the American arms of major high fashion houses in recent years, all centering on claims of alleged race-motivated discrimination.

Defendant Versace USA swiftly denied Sampino’s claims of labor abuses and discrimination, noting that it “does not tolerate discrimination on the basis of race, national origin or any other characteristic protected by our civil rights laws.”

There was more […]
