Another user Asia Smith commended the efforts of the fashion brand for choosing a model that wears cochlear implant. She has expressed happiness about a model representing someone like her. The model in the advertisement has been identified as Tasha Ghouri who was born deaf. Cochlear implants are surgically implanted and are used to stimulate the auditory nerve to provide sensation of sound to the people who are deaf.
Definitely not crying because of @ASOS using an earring model with a hearing aid ð It’s the first time I’ve ever seen a model with a hearing impairment, let alone an earring model and its so refreshing to see this kind of representation for people like me ð

Meanwhile, Bottega Veneta, a luxury fashion designer had designed a necklace that resembles a telephone cord.

The post shared by an Instagram page Diet Prada has drawn comparison and people were quick to troll the company. Diet Prada on its Instagram account shared the picture of Bottega Veneta’s latest necklace picture. The post consists of a collage of the necklace that is priced at $2000 and also coiled telephone cords worth $5 to show the difference.
