Gucci donates $500,000 towards gun control
The decision was made by creative director Alessandro Michele
Gucci recently hit the news with a bold Autumn/Winter 2018 show in Milan. The show, curated by Alessandro Michele, featured models carrying replicas of their own heads. Now, the high fashion label is back in the news for another bold move. The brand has donated $500,000 to the March for Our Lives rally. The protest was set up after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 dead. Students intend to take the streets of Washington on March 24 to protest gun legislature. As reported by Dazed, the march is expected to draw a crowd of over $500,000.
Creative director Alessandro Michele talked to WWD to explain why he’s backing the cause. “I am truly moved by the courage of these students,” he explained. The designer added that he’s “standing with March for Our Lives and [those] across the United States who are fighting for their generation and those to come”.
