Chanel is offering a public apology for offending the Native American community with headdress-cum-high fashion duds at the Chanel-Dallas Metiers d'Art show.
The show was held Tuesday at Fair Park, a national historic landmark in Dallas. More than 1000 fashion devotees stepped out for the event, including Kristen Stewart, who was announced to be face of the line on Dec. 11. Dakota Fanning, Lauren Hutton, Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour and other major names in fashion were in attendance.
Shortly after runway photos for the show appeared online, the Internet began to buzz about the collection’s influences, which beyond cowboy culture included looks that featured long white headdresses and feathered separates.
