Controversy[edit]

Izzue was embroiled in controversy when it used Nazi Germany themes on its clothes and decor, including swastikas, banners, and propaganda films, as part of its decor during its 2003 season. Marketing manager Deborah Cheng apologized[1] and issued a statement saying "that the designer did not realize that the Nazi symbols would be considered offensive."[2]
