Dasha Zhukova Sits On A 'Black Woman' Chair

The Moscow-based street style star, former Russian Harper's Bazaar editor and founder of online fashion publication, Buro 24/7 is under fire for posting a photograph featuring Garage magazine editor-in-chief Dasha Zhukova sitting on a black woman contorted like a chair.

The photograph, which originally appeared on Buro247, was later cropped by the publication to remove the chair but not before it had circulated widely, sparking furore.

FashionBombDaily editor Claire Sulmers, who broke the story, described the image as an example of "white dominance and superiority, articulated in a seemingly serene yet overtly degrading way."

"We can't help but be filled with anger and frustration over the onslaught of negative imagery, constant disregard and unabashed bigotry that continues to plague the fashion industry,"

The chair, designed by Norwegian artist Bjarne Melgaard, was inspired by a 1969 collection from British pop artist Allen Jones, according to FashionBombDaily which also criticized the piece for creating a message of "white dominance and superiority, articulated in a seemingly serene yet overtly degrading way."




On Tuesday, Duma took to Instagram to issue an apology, writing:
