8 months ago

2017秋冬巴黎時裝周剛開始就陷入一股陰影,Balenciaga、Lanvin、Hermès 以及 Elie Saab 等奢侈品牌相相被傳出相關的 casting agency 虐待模特兒之輿論。

據美國媒體 WWD 指出,事件起源美國 casting director James Scully 日前在 Instagram 公開了對同行 Maida Gegori Boina 和 Rami Fernandes 虐待模特兒的指責。

 

So true to my promise at #bofvoices that I would be a voice for any models, agents or all who see things wrong with this business I'm disappointed to come to Paris and hear that the usual suspects are up to the same tricks. I was very disturbed to hear from a number of girls this morning that yesterday at the Balenciaga casting Madia & Ramy (serial abusers) held a casting in which they made over 150 girls wait in a stairwell told them they would have to stay over 3 hours to be seen and not to leave. In their usual fashion they shut the door went to lunch and turned off the lights, to the stairs leaving every girl with only the lights of their phones to see. Not only was this sadistic and cruel it was dangerous and left more than a few of the girls I spoke with traumatized. Most of the girls have asked to have their options for Balenciaga cancelled as well as Hermes and Ellie Saab who they also cast for because they refuse to be treated like animals. Balenciaga part of Kering it is a public company and these houses need to know what the people they hire are doing on their behalf before a well deserved law suit comes their way. On top of that I have heard from several agents, some of whom are black that they have received mandate from Lanvin that they do not want to be presented with women of color. And another big house is trying to sneak 15 year olds into paris! It's inconceivable to me that people have no regard for human decency or the lives and feelings of these girls, especially when too too many of these models are under the age of 18 and clearly not equipped to be here but god forbid well sacrifice anything or anyone for an exclusive right? If this behavior continues it's gonna be a long cold week in paris. Please keep sharing your stories with me and I will continue to to share them for you. It seems to be the only way we can force change and give the power back to you models and agents where it rightfully belongs. And I encourage any and all to share this post #watchthisspace

跟據他的文章內容,他在為巴黎時裝週選角的時候,聽到幾位模特兒抱怨在Balenciaga2017秋冬時裝秀試鏡時遭到的非人待遇,稱 Maida Gegori Boina 和 Rami Fernandes 當天將約150名模特兒關在狹窄昏暗的樓梯間內近三個小時,並在午飯時將整棟樓的燈關掉,手機成為模特兒們唯一的照明工具,事後多位模特兒均受到了精神創傷。

同時他還提到,Maida Gegori Boina 和 Rami Fernandes 的 casting agency 與 Hermès 以及 Elie Saab 等品牌也有合作協議,為再次避免遭受不人道的的對待,一些模特兒甚至放棄為這些品牌走秀的機會。

James Scully 的大膽控訴發布之後,立刻得到眾多業界人士聲援支持。目前有關品牌均對此發表了聲明,Balenciaga 勇於承認錯誤,終止了與 Maida Gegori Boina 和 Rami Fernandes 的合作關係,並對遭遇到不公待遇的模特兒道歉,強調 Balenciaga 與母公司 Kering 一直非常重視並尊重模特兒這行業,絕不容忍類似的事情再次發生。

而 Elie Saab 的發言人也隨即表示品牌對這一事件極其重視,已開始展開調查,並強調品牌一直對模特的健康與權益問題給予高度關注。相反 Lanvin 品牌發言人則對於 James Scully 的指控回應這是純屬無中生有。

是次事件再次一言驚醒大眾,其實在模特兒的光鮮形象下,還隱藏著有很多鮮為人知﹑未被揭發的黑暗面,相信模特兒們爭取平等對待的道路依然漫長。
