Expressing his anger, Harjinder Singh Kukreja, tweeted, “Dear @gucci, the Sikh Turban is not a hot new accessory for white models but an article of faith for practising Sikhs. Your models have used Turbans as ‘hats’ whereas practising Sikhs tie them neatly fold-by-fold. Using fake Sikhs/Turbans is worse than selling fake Gucci products”.

The turbans are being delivered for free and are available is only one size.
