Trouble for Chiara Ferragni

OG Influencer Chiara Ferragni is in the hot seat after Italian watchdog Autorita’ Garante della Concorrenza e del Mercato (AGCM) found that she misled consumers with a paid partnership she said would benefit charity. Last year, Ferrangi partnered with Balocco on a holiday cake dubbed the “Pandoro Pink Christmas,” the sales of which, Ferragni promised, would go toward the Regina Margherita children’s hospital in Turin.  Balocco only made a $55,000 payment to the hospital months before the Ferragni pandoro was launched and Ferragni made no donations while her companies received 1 million euros — around $1.1 million — for the branding collaboration, regulators said. Ferragni was fined the equivalent of $1.2 million by AGCM for the misleading claims.

Ferragni made a somber apology on Instagram yesterday. “I realized I had made a communication error,” she said. “A mistake that I will treasure in the future, completely separating any charitable activity, which I have always done and will continue to do, from commercial activities,” she said in Italian, according to Google Translate. She has also promised to make a sizable donation to the hospital.

June Ambrose is leaving Puma

June Ambrose will be departing her role as Puma’s creative director for women’s basketball. Ambrose announced her departure on Instagram today and in an exclusive interview with Business of Fashion. “I was able to visually disrupt what the genre of music looked like and I saw a white space to do the same thing in the world of sport,” Ambrose said. “I set out to create something that at the time was new and fresh- product that was both performance and lifestyle at the same time.”
