La carrera de la ex esposa del productor y fundadora de la firma, Georgina Chapman, corre peligro con el hashtag #BoycottMarchesa

Después de la denuncia de Rose McGowan en Twitter al productor de cine Harvey Weinstein, una avalancha de denuncias  por parte de actrices, modelos y personajes del espectáculo descubrieron lo que sería un secreto a voces en Hollywood; sin embargo la polémica continúa en boca de todos. Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow así como las modelos Zoe Brock y Cara Delevigne son tan solo de las pocas que se han atrevido a hablar y denunciar los abusos. 

 

 

When I first started to work as an actress, i was working on a film and I received a call from‎ Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media. It was a very odd and uncomfortable call....i answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or decided to be with a woman especially in public that I'd never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood. A year or two later, I went to a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film. The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature. He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn't and wouldn't be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn't want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction. I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing....i thought it would make the situation better....more professional....like an audition....i was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room. I still got the part for the film and always thought that he gave it to me because of what happened. Since then I felt awful that I did the movie. I felt like I didn't deserve the part. I was so hesitant about speaking out....I didn't want to hurt his family. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong. I was also terrified that this sort of thing had happened to so many women I know but no one had said anything because of fear.

No obstante, el reciente escándalo podría afectar no solo a Weinstein sino a su ex esposa, Georgina Chapman, diseñadora y fundadora de la marca de lujo Marchesa, quien pidió el divorcio luego de enterarse de los múltiples casos de acoso por parte de su esposo y lo condenó como imperdonable, según el portal de noticias BBC. 

 


La firma que ha robado más de un suspiro a las mujeres de todo el mundo, pasa por un momento de incertidumbre pues Chapman anunció que pospondría el desfile de presentación de la nueva colección de Marchesa.  A su vez, un nuevo hashtag titulado #BoycottMarchesa se ha creado en Twitter en contra de la firma de moda favorita de las alfombras rojas pues aseguran que Harvey Weinstein obligaba a las actrices a vestir Marchesa con amenazas. 

 


Entre las actrices que denunciaron este abuso se encuentran Felicity Huffman mejor conocida por su papel de Lynette en la serie norteamericana Desperate Housewives (Esposas Desesperadas) quien, según el portal Daily Mail, fue amenazada por Weinstein de no tener más carrera artística si no usaba Marchesa para sus apariciones en alfombra roja. A su vez, la actriz Sienna Miller fue amenazada varias veces por el personal de Weinstein diciéndole que “El Señor (Harvey) estaría muy enojado si no usaba Marchesa para compartir asiento con ellos en la cena de los Golden Globes del 2007”.

Esto hace pensar que muchas de las actrices que han usado Marchesa para sus apariciones en público quizá no hayan elegido por si mismas y hay grandes indicios de que posiblemente fueron obligadas. Tal es el caso de Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock y Reneé Zellweger que casualmente usaron diseños de la casa en presentaciones que tenían que ver con la compañía productora de Harvey Weinstein.
