Prada agrees to racial training after window display uproar

NEW YORK (AP) — Luxury fashion brand Prada will give racial equity training to its employees in New York City and executives in Milan as part of a settlement with the city over the 2018 display of merchandise that contained racist imagery. The agreement announced Wednesday also calls for Prada to develop a scholarship program and within 90 days to show the agency the candidates for a diversity officer. An uproar arose in December 2018 over a window display of figurines in Prada’s Soho store that were black with oversize red lips and were likened to blackface. Prada pulled the figurines and said they weren’t intended to reference blackface.
