Canadian designers apologize to indigenous people for use of derogatory term
Canadian fashion design team DSquared issued an open letter apologizing to all indigenous people for using a derogatory term to promote a women’s collection they said had an “indigenous flair”.
The apology was sent to a Globe and Mail editor by DSquared design brothers Dan and Dean Caten.
The apology comes in response to backlash following the Hudson’s Bay Company announcement that Dquared2 would be designing official Canadian Olympic team wear for the 2016 summer games opening ceremonies in Rio de Janiero.
The Caten brothers said although their intentions were in good faith they now understand the terminology used was offensive and apologized for any disrespect it may have caused.
