For baring fashion’s slips
Most Creative People

Tony Liu is the cofounder of fashion watchdog Diet Prada, which exposes and shames brands accused of copycatting, cultural appropriation, and racism, gathering tips from Instagram users. Liu, who also has his own clothing line sold on Mr. Porter, met his cofounder, Lindsey Schuyler, when they both worked at milliner Eugenia Kim. In the past year, they have called out brands including Dolce & Gabbana, who were forced to cancel a show in Shanghai after racist direct messages from one of the cofounders were surfaced by the account. Running the account is a full-time job for the pair, who also sell Diet Prada merchandise and partner with select fashion brands and more institutions including museums and international fashion councils.
