Anke Loh Discusses the Gucci Controversy in Fortune

For its spring/summer 2020 ready-to-wear show, Gucci designed 21 looks comprising white straitjackets and uniforms. The decision from the creative director, Alessandro Michele, stirred controversy on the runway and social media. In an article in Fortune, Anke Loh, associate professor and chair of Fashion Design, critically addresses Michele’s designs as, “Without any interpretation, this was a straightforward straitjacket. That is something I don't find very imaginative, and I would say he's a really good designer. I've seen some really good work from him."
