Gucci slammed for using Sikh turban as an accessory

Gucci is under the limelight for a move that has upset the Sikh community around the world. The famous brand showcased pagri or turbans on models in its fall 2018 collection at Milan Fashion Week.

The Sikhs have accused the brand for insulting their religion. Social media users have expressed their disapproval over using a religious garb as a fashion accessory.


This move by a fashion house comes at a especially bad time as a Sikh man was recently a victim of a racist attack in UK. The accused mentioned racist remarks like ‘Muslim go back’ at him.


This is not the first time a famous brand has marketed cultural apparel as fashion. High-street brand, Zara, was in the limelight recently for selling lungis as skirts at an exorbitant price.
