Designer apologises after using Charlotte Dawson’s funeral for PR

Australian designer brand Carla Zampetti have been under fire for recently regramming an image of Terri Biviano at Charlotte Dawson’s funeral with the caption: “Black, sleek & chic all over, #terrybiviano is snapped stylishly wearing the raven crepe jumpsuit #streetstyle”.

The designer apologised on behalf of the mistake saying: “This photo was innocently regrammed without us being aware of where it was taken … we regret any distress this may have caused.”

This isn’t the first faux-pas made by designers in relation to tragic circumstances of late.

Both Valentino and Ugg Australia were accused of using the funeral and wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman for PR reasons.
