The brand was also criticised for making European models wear turbans instead of looking for a Sikh model.

British-Canadian actor Avan Jogia took to Twitter, “could you not find a brown model?”

On Friday, the New York-based Sikh Coalition civil rights group tweeted:

“The Sikh turban is a sacred article of faith, @gucci, not a mere fashion accessory. #appropriation. We are available for further education and consultation if you are looking for observant Sikh models.”

India-based restauranteur Harjinder Singh Kukreja said: “Dear @gucci, the Sikh Turban is not a hot new accessory for white models but an article of faith for practising Sikhs. Your models have used Turbans as ‘hats’ whereas practising Sikhs tie them neatly fold-by-fold. Using fake Sikhs/Turbans is worse than selling fake Gucci products.”
