Tapestry Inc., a leading New York-based house of modern luxury accessories and lifestyle brands, announced its participation in the Black in Fashion Council Active Allyship Pledge. Members of the Active Allyship program commit to joining together to secure the advancement of Black individuals in the fashion and beauty industry.
“We are proud to partner with the Black in Fashion Council and join them in their mission to ensure that Black individuals are represented and amplified in our industry,” said Joanne Crevoiserat, CEO of Tapestry, Inc. “We have committed to expanding diversity in our Tapestry and brand leadership teams. Working with the Council will help us to build upon the progress that we have made in achieving these goals.”
“As we now have over 100 brands signed on to work with the Black in Fashion Council, we couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with Tapestry brands on creating long-term change in the fashion industry,” said Sandrine Charles and Lindsay Peoples-Wagner, co-founders, Black in Fashion Council. “There is still so much work to be done, and it’s exciting to see influential houses like Tapestry commit to making our industry more inclusive.”
Over the course of the next three years, Tapestry will work with BIFC Executive board members, who will provide feedback, insight and counsel.
In celebration of Black History month and the announcement of this partnership, Tapestry will host a special edition of the company’s discussion series called “Unscripted,” featuring BIFC co-founders Wagner and Charles. The discussion will center on diversity in fashion today and the actions that can create a more equitable, inclusive and diverse culture.
