I honestly regret looking at this thread in the first place, but it's like a never-ending train wreck...

You can clearly see where Terry's weird mind comes from and why he thinks a lot of things he's doing are 'normal'.

These fashion corporations may distance themselves from him until the outcries die down, but then it'll be back to the good ol' boys club for him. The fashion industry is not really that different from any other corporations, sadly: It remains the good ol' boys club by structure-- even if it may not look that way because the representatives aren't traditionally good ol' boys in appearance.

Until there's an undeniable wave against him-- as in consumers boycotting everything he's involved in, with enough of an impact for blue chip labels and publications to not hire him and advertisers to pull out from major publications that do supports him, I think he will continue to work, and unfortunately, continue on with his ways.

From my experience, the majority of high fashion consumers just don't really care-- or care enough that they will be boycotting any designer products and publications because he's contributing to their product. That "it" bag and that "cute" pair of shoes is more important to many than ethics and morals.

I´ve been conducting my own mini poll amongst tumblr fashion blogs, most are run by teenagers who either don´t know who TR is or don´t know about this controversy. They´ll keep buying Bazaar, Aldo, H&M and any other budget brand simply out of ignorance, not just because they don´t care. Unless big media outlets and/or big celebrities talk about it I don´t think he´d be gone any time soon.

I'll just say that the minority has made a difference before, and will again. It's always a minority that really cares about any ethical issue. And we can be loud.


Is Cathy Black still in charge at Hearst?

The turnover in the modelling world is too high for any inside overthrow. As long as consumers buy into his aesthetic he's going to survive any backlash against him.

I do find his parent photos quite perverse. Is there an explanation of what he was going for?

I wouldn't mind never see any picture from Terry Richardson again. Not at all.

^ Agreed ... and that goes quadruple for the 'family portraits.'

Oh God, hope he's not alluding to Carmen! There's nothing on her Twitter feed though. I wonder what all this means?
