Designer Ulyana Sergeenko and Miroslava Duma Accused of Racism, Homophobia and Transphobia

According to the Business Of Fashion Miroslava Duma has responded to a disturbing video that has emerged of her making homophobic and transphobic comments, shortly after receiving a barrage of criticism for posting a racial slur on Instagram. 

According to HighNobiety Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko and publisher Miroslava Duma are facing a severe backlash following a now-deleted Instagram post that contained a racial slur. An image in Duma’s IG Stories showed a handwritten note from Sergeenko featuring a lyric from Kanye West and JAY-Z’s popular “N***** in Paris” song.

According to Teen Vogue, writer Amira Rasool explains why Ulyana Sergeenko and Miroslava Duma's apologies are even more telling of their lack of respect for Black people. Over the last few years, several members of the fashion community have pledged to fight for inclusion within an industry that has historically catered to White audiences under the supervision of predominately White corporations. Although significant strides have been made to reverse the visual absence of diverse racial and gender characters, the overall fashion industry has yet to adapt a social climate that properly reflects diverse experiences.
