Posted January 16, 2012

About 100 protesters gathered for the third time in a week in front of a Dolce & Gabbana in Hong Kong, accusing the Milan-based fashion house of racism over an incident, in which a Hong Kong resident was banned from taking a photo of the store, reports Women’s Wear Daily.

During the protests, organized through a Facebook campaign, nearby retailers, including a Hugo Boss, closed early.

Last week’s protests drew more than 1000 people. Local media reports that Dolce & Gabbana bans Hong Kong Chinese from taking pictures, but allows Mainland Chinese and foreign tourists to do so.
