Hope for our Future!
This is the amazing 12 year old Lydia, the bright and talented daughter of one of my students. When she heard Abercrombie and Fitch CEO, Mike Jeffries had uttered this utterly ridiculous and discriminatory statement…
“In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids,” he says. “Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely. Those companies that are in trouble are trying to target everybody: young, old, fat, skinny. But then you become totally vanilla. You don’t alienate anybody, but you don’t excite anybody, either.”
…she took it upon herself to alter her (previously prized) Abercrombie & Fitch tee. BRAVO Lydia! I, for one think it’s greatly improved. Like and SHARE this with your friends if you agree!
