Chanel did the apology dance for Fashionista on Friday with regard to the headdresses in its Texas show. A rep said that the collection is "Native Americans are an integral part of Texas' rich history and culture and the feather headdress, a symbol of strength and bravery, is one of the most visually stunning examples of creativity and craftsmanship." They are sorry if it was "misinterpreted" or "is seen as offensive." [Fashionista]
