Prada was taken to court !
by Shiomi T.
Fashion model in Prada outfit
Prada is very famous for its high-class clothing and accessories all over the world. However, I was amazed at the following news story: "Former Prada Japan senior retail manager Rina Bovrisse, who is suing the company over emotional distress from alleged harassment..."
Prada Japan's personnel director told her "You are ugly", "Reduce your weight!", and so on. What is more, Prada Italy laid her off, and she was fired by the Japan office!
There is no certain evidence whether her statement is true or not. Prada Japan and Italy both say it is a lie. So, maybe she won't be able to win this fight. But if her statement is true, it will shock the fashion business world.
I cannot decide which statement is true. However, it gives us an opportunity to think about our speech. We may hurt someone by what we say, but we don't know it. We have to be careful about our comments in daily life.
Well, I don't like Prada, because it isn't suitable for me! I prefer low price and inconspicuous fashion accessories.
