If people want to fix it, picking on one house isn't the way to do it.
he is a board member of the CFDA. so yes, in my opinion, it is fair.
trying to target all designers at once doesn't seem to work so maybe naming and shaming big houses, who definitely have the funds to be paying their models, is a better approach.
i am not one of these people who think all models should be making tens of thousands. let's be real, like MANY industries it is not a high skill work, and there is more supply of models than demand. but they should at least ALL be paid an hourly rate of at least minimum wage
