Top 5 distressing clothing collections list! In November, Dolce & Gabbana canceled a Shanghai fashion show, just as it was scheduled to start, after being accused of racism. The controversy started after the luxury label shared videos on Instagram in which an Asian model attempted to eat Italian food with chopsticks. The videos were meant to promote the Shanghai event, which the brand had dubbed “The Great Show,” but instead they sparked anger online. Users on the Chinese social media platform Weibo accused the label of trivializing Chinese culture and presenting a racist view of women. To make matters even worse, it appeared Stefano Gabbana, one of the brand’s co-founders, was responding to upset commenters online with offensive insults. He later claimed his account, and the account of the brand, had been hacked.
Rick Owens Mens’ Fall/Winter 2015 Collection, “Sphinx’ (aka the Peen Peek), One of the most talked about shows of the Fall/Winter 2015 season was Rick Owen’s Sphinx, which featured male models wearing garments with cut-outs designed to show off their genitalia. Though by now the fashion world knows that Owens doesn’t shy away from controversy, nevertheless the stunt still ignited a frenzy of shocked online posts. Of the collection, Owens explained that the focus put on the model’s genitalia was an effort to incorporate a childish or juvenile aspect to the presentation.

The Givenchy Spring/Summer 2016 show built up a whole lot of buzz well before the models headed down the runway. But not necessarily for a good reason: the show was held in the shadow of the Freedom Tower – once the site of New York’s Twin Towers – on September 11. Initially considered a pretty controversial choice of time and location for a fashion show, the fashion press was generally appreciative of the gesture. Givenchy’s Haute aesthetic was strangely of a piece with the scale, drama, and surreal quality of this memorial of public mourning. Not to mention it’s typically black mourning palette. And though it might not seem particularly respectful to use September 11th to sell clothes, its capitalist gesture was in keeping with the twin towers. Although still in somewhat questionable taste, the choice of setting and the collection itself were both praised by those who attended as a powerful and moving experience.
