HONG KONG — Protesters gathered for the third time in a week in front of Dolce & Gabbana's Canton Road store on Sunday, accusing the Italian brand of racism and demanding an apology over an incident in which a Hong Kong resident was allegedly barred from taking a photo of the store.
About 100 protesters braved the rain Sunday afternoon to stand in front of the Canton Road store, which was closed at the time. Other stores nearby also shuttered their doors, including a Hugo Boss. About 60 protesters assembled Friday evening, according to local media reports. These gatherings were considerably smaller than the original protest last week, which reportedly drew more than 1,000 people. The protests have been organized through a Facebook campaign.
On Sunday, the protesters were yelling "Apologize! Apologize!" in Cantonese over and over. A few passing cars on the busy street honked in solidarity with the protesters.
Similarly, the group on Friday took photographs of the store and shouted slogans against the brand, Oriental Daily News reported on its web site. Footage on the site showed police putting up fences and one protestor shouting and hitting the windows of the store.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
