Balenciaga Is Offering Two Full Scholarships to Black Alumni of Pratt
As diversity in fashion still remains a major issue of concern, a number of more influential fashion houses are striving to provide increasing opportunities for people of color. Demna Gvasalia and Balenciaga, for one, are now awarding full four-year scholarships to two students of African-American or Latinx descent at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute in further support of the Black Alumni of Pratt group.

News of the scholarships came last night during Pratt’s annual Celebration of the Creative Spirit. Demna Gvasalia was awarded this year’s Creative Spirit award, and while he wasn’t able to attend, we have to think that the announcement of free education more than sufficed in his stead.

Again, Balenciaga isn’t the only major fashion label attempting to remedy the lack of diversity in the industry. Prada previously announced a Diversity and Inclusivity Advisory council co-chaired by director Ava DuVernay and artist Theaster Gates, while Gucci has initiated a $5 million fund for scholarships and community-based programs.
