I was actually thinking Miles Aldridge? I remember he had a policy of not shooting black models a few years back because it "didn't fit with his vision" or whatever bull it was. And he's worked with Bazaar and PatMcGrath before...

As for the casting directors, I'm going for the hundred with Barbara and Leila.

Thanks ! Did some research but found nothing, except for their casting choices in regards to diversity ...

Makes more sense than Maida & Rami. The latter don't even work together anymore that often.

Yes, the casting directors are Barbara and Leila. I believe they casts for Gucci and Scully has been very vocal about the lack of diversity in Gucci shows (among others).
It will be interesting to see if they still cast Gucci as the president was in the room during Scully's speech.

The two have incited controversy before for their views on the lack of racial diversity on the runways. “We think we need to keep in mind that these are shows. A show needs to make you dream, and it doesn’t necessarily need to represent reality,” Ananna told Buzzfeed, prompting many people to take to their blogs and internet forums to question the racial composition of the ‘dream’ that fashion shows intend to convey.
source business of fashion

I immediately thought about these two stupid women too

its disgusting to hear some of the stuff that is going on. I applaud him for speaking up about this, but I also wonder why if this has been going on, why arent the designers and stylists speaking up. As well as the agencies... If James knows about it, then im sure other people do so why has no one publicly shamed them? We shouldnt be afraid to speak on this especially when it comes to young girls who are in danger.

I believe James is well-known enough, as well as many of his allies to speak up and put these people in fashion blast.

Its fear.... fear to lose clients, not to work anymore.
Its a very insecure business... so the fear for speaking out is to be alienated by the business... its a small world and everyone knows eachother and talk about eachother and have powerfull friends/business contacts.... so yes there is fear!

If I remember correctly James said, he thought about selling his apartment again and move away from the business again....but decided to speak up now....and even made a threat to name names...

Well lets see what changes will occur..

I guess now i know why i've hated most of ALAIA's recent casts. I think his audience is much more diverse than his runway shows nowadays....

We can expect no diversity at CK again. It will not be a big change actually...

I completely agree. Maida & Rami immediately came up in my thought when James exposed that dirty tactic. I hope they learned their lesson.

On a different note, I think they might have split because models.com only credit Maida, not together with Rami.
