"The fashion industry has a huge role to play, and for me, it starts with representation, both within my business and who we work with externally. I’ve always aimed for inclusivity, but we all need to look inwards and be better. At Victoria Beckham, we’ve set up an internal working group as a first step and will provide additional support to ensure that we are listening to each other, discussing the issues, identifying unconscious bias in ourselves and ensuring our short and long-term actions reflect all our learnings.
Whilst things won’t change or be solved in a day, we clearly can’t wait another day to start and I am absolutely committed to being better and doing more, both personally and professionally. I hope you all share my sentiment and are doing the same with your friends, family, brands and businesses so that we all play our part in this vital issue."
"Fenty as a brand was created to elevate beauty, power and freedom! At this very moment racists are attempting to rip those values away from black people and we will NOT stand by and let that happen. We are too powerful, creative and resilient. In support of the black community, we will be donating funds to Color of Change and Movement for Black Lives. We ask you to speak up, stand up, and pull up against racism and discrimination in all forms."
"Racism is a pandemic that kills. It subjugates. It incarcerates. It humiliates. We are the vaccine – we must stand strong and unite against systemic ignorance today and begin to build a better tomorrow, for everyone. As Angela Davis and Marlon James have said, it is not enough to be non-racist – we must be anti-racist. We will be donating to @NAACP_LDF to support racial justice in MN, NY and across America."
"In honour of #GeorgeFloyd and our entire community, Aritzia is donating $100,000 to Black Lives Matter and the NAACP."
"[No one] else has this dress apart from me and RiRi. :) We will be producing this iconic dress exclusively for three charities! Finally you can also have this dress and the only way [...] All profits from the sale of @badgalriri hot wok dresses will be for @blklivesmatter @solacewomensaid @thevoiceofdomesticworkers."
"Through Gucci’s North America Changemakers Impact Fund, we will support with donations to @NAACP, @campaignzero and @yourrightscamp, in addition to @Kering_official's commitment on behalf of all @Kering_official brands.
On Thursday, June 4th all Gucci operations in the United States will pause for employees to have a day of mourning, honour the lives lost, and recommit ourselves to being part of the solution."
"At Ganni, we stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. As we’ve been researching and educating ourselves, our silence—born out of the fear of saying the wrong thing—has gone on for too long.
Today, our company and founders will be donating $100,000 across the below organisations, in support of the fight to end racial injustice.
@blklivesmatter @naacp @aclu_nationwide
We know this is not enough—we must continue to listen, research, and educate ourselves about systematic injustice and state sanctioned violence against Black people globally."
"Dauphinette stands in solidarity— explicitly, imperfectly, and each day— with the Black Lives Matter movement and every Human affected. As an Asian-American led company and as a founder, I do not pretend to understand the racial injustices that Black people experience, but I would like to educate myself as closely as possible, to align my actions with my beliefs, and to stand up unequivocally for the pursuit of equality. In my company, we will never, ever tolerate racial discrimination. Not internally, not in our imagery or messaging, not in any capacity. We are still a very small company right now, so I take this pledge as a promise that I will keep and revisit on every step of our growth path. I pledge to observe the way racism enters into the conversations around me and my own internal dialogue— to notice it, but never to absorb it and nudge it off. I pledge to act against racism, to speak up, to fight it, both inside myself, my immediate life, and the world I occupy."
"We stand in solidarity with the black community in the fight against systemic racism and white supremacy. Recent events remind us that our inaction is violence, and that silence makes us complicit. All of us can do more to fight racism every day.
We are making donations to Belly Mujinga’s memorial fund, local bail funds in the US, and to Color of Change, who campaign for racial justice throughout America."
"We must put in the work to dismantle racism."
"The events of the past week have shined a spotlight on the systemic racism and injustices directed at the Black community throughout our nation’s history. In response to the heightened moment of tension playing out in cities across the U.S., LS&Co. is making a $100,000 donation to our longstanding partner, @aclu_nationwide. In addition, the Levi Strauss Foundation is making a $100,000 grant to @livefreeusa, an organization on the front lines of social-justice issues."
