PARIS — The possibility of a burka ban by the French government met mixed reactions Tuesday from fashion players.
Some — including Marigay McKee, fashion and beauty director at Harrods, owned by Mohamed Al Fayed (who also owns the Ritz hotel in Paris) — believe banning the garment could have a detrimental effect on French business. That could especially be the case for top-end hotels, many of which are owned or frequented by Arabs, and for bastions of the luxury trade.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
