Twitter Fans Come For Valentino!

Some fans on twitter have come for Valentino's "Africa-inspired" collection for spring/summer 2016. The show featured Africa inspired designs and corn row hairstyles with an array of white models. According to Valentino, the designs were meant to be "primitive, spiritual, yet regal" and the collection was inspired by "wild, tribal Africa" so how come he did not include more black or African models. This was what caused the stir amongst some fashion fans...especially Africans...

The collection has been tagged as culturally misrepresented and racially insensitive by fans.

This was what motivated this twitter fan's outburst, read what he said...
My first tweet in years is going to be about racial insensitivity in fashion.
