The controversy involving Kuwaiti social media influencer Sondos Al Qattan has resurfaced after Luxury French fashion house Dior decided to invite her to watch the brand’s latest Spring-Summer 2019 Ready-to-Wear show in Paris.

It can be recalled that Al Qattan found herself in hot water after questioning the Kuwaiti government’s reforms on the kafala system which now allows Filipino domestic workers to have the right to days off and possession of their own passports.

After the controversy has slightly boiled down, well-known luxury brand Dior decided to invite her and host her in Paris for a fashion show which irked some netizens.

She took to Instagram to share several photos of the invitation and gifts she received from Dior, such as a designer bag, a bouquet, and some pastries, as well as the fashion show she has attended.

This has led many netizens to speculate that the fashion brand is sponsoring the controversial Kuwaiti social media celebrity.

However, in a statement to Arabian Business, Dior clarified that they have no business connections with Al Qattan.

“Sondos Al Qattan was invited to the Spring/Summer Ready-to-Wear show by the local Dior boutique. Dior Couture does not collaborate with Al Qattan as an influencer and does not have any business relationship with her beyond the capacity of a client,” the statement said.

“Her views and opinions do not represent in any way the views of Dior,” Dior added.
