Fashion Designers In ‘Blackface’ At African Themed ‘Disco Africa’ Halloween Party


Last night, several Italian fashion insiders attended a racist Halloween party themed “Disco Africa.” Designer Allesandro Dell’Acqua, showed up, along with several others, in blackface.

Shameless about his open racist, we see him posing for photos below with Stefano Gabbana of Dolce & Gabbana and Juan Fran Sierra.


But they were hardly alone in their tasteless and racist attire.


The trend of Blackface in fashion has seemingly gained traction since Carine Roitfeld painted Lara Stone brown in Paris Vogue, as pictured below:


White people in the fashion industry who pull racist stunts like this often console themselves and attempt to silence critics by pointing to singular, tokens that they can say “are okay with it.” We see that even at this profoundly racist costume party, there was one person in attendance willing to sell out to his m̶a̶s̶t̶e̶r̶s̶ bosses.


Other unidentified racist fashion elites were spotted; some of their images are below. These pictures highlight the fact that as a society we are no longer moving forward, but are instead taking huge leaps backwards, in terms of normalized racism.

If you’ve had enough of people like this thinking that they can get away with this sort of racism without being named and shamed as the racists that they are, spread the word and let people know what goes on behind the closed doors of private parties and in the innermost circles of the aristocracy.

    motherfucker,!!, no matter how much love and patiant we give them they just don’t get it.

  2. Ethan S says:

    I kinda feel like when people darken their skin to show off the beauty of that color it is one thing. The guys with the charcoal-black faces are NOT okay!

  3. Beth says:

    There is a difference between “Black Face” (yes, the top picture is racist imo) and dressing up to imitate a character such as a rapper, athlete or an African warrior. Imitation is the highest form of flattery, not racism so get over yourself. People like you with your derogatory comments about the one actual black guy at the party are part of the huge problem of diluting ACTUAL racism.
