According to a statement issued by ‘Kendall + Kylie,’ the company claims it no longer works with the entity in Bangladesh and says the allegation of not pay THEIR workers is ‘untrue.’
“We manufacture in countries all over the world and have not received any concerns from the factories who produce our goods,” the statement begins…
The allegations originated in an article published in ‘Remake’ on June 1, claiming the company Global Brands Group (GBG) — “refused to pay its garment suppliers for orders produced in February and March following a drop in sales caused by the coronavirus pandemic.”
At the time, Kylie and Kendall’s company was still listed as an entity that does business with GBG.
But, this week the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ stars clarified their position in connection with the situation.”
“We would like to address the unfortunate and incorrect rumor that Global Brands Group owns the Kendall + Kylie brand and that we have neglected to pay factory workers in Bangladesh as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic,” it started…
“This is untrue,” the statement said.
It continued, “The Kendall + Kylie brand is owned by 3072541 Canada Inc., not GBG. The brand has worked with CAA-GBG in the past in a sales and business development capacity only, but we do not currently have any relationship at all with GBG.”
The statement concluded, “We know these are trying times for the fashion industry and garment workers as a whole, and we continue to support all of our partners working in the factories who produce our products. We manufacture in countries all over the world and have not received any concerns from the factories who produce our goods.”
Kylie’s Cosmetic’s company felt the situation was bad enough that it also made a statement regarding the situation in Bangladesh. Simply put, they claim the company DOESN’T make anything in that area.
“There is a rumor that some people are perpetuating online, which is unfortunate. The Kendall and Kylie CLOTHING BRAND do NOT MANUFACTURE anything in Bangladesh and ‘Kendall and Kylie’ is NOT CURRENTLY ASSOCIATED WITH GLOBAL BRAND GROUP. We feel terrible that this problem exists, but this rumor regarding the Kendall and Kylie clothing brand is completely untrue,” Kylie Cosmetics said.
