We understand that you are asking for more clarity in regards to the statement Vogue Knitting released last week. We had deleted a social media post, in which we announced a giveaway on Instagram for a Karl Lagerfeld Knitting Kit produced by The Woolmark Company. We did not consider Lagerfeld’s controversial reputation and should have done more research before making the post. After consulting with the Diversity Advisory Council, we realized that by deleting the post and not releasing a statement, we silenced our community. As our statement mentioned, going forward we will be reviewing our internal processes regarding what we post and who we choose to promote on social media.
