see i think that's the big issue here....marc jacobs not only has the prestige,but he is a board member of the CFDA.....he has LVMH money coming from the stakes they own in his label and for his work at louis vuitton. the guy is not struggling for money. he can afford to pay his in-house fitting models as well as his catwalk models....probably three times over.
most of the time "trade" practices do occur but in many of these cases these models are well over 18 and very cognizant of their options. i remember distinctly erin o'connor when she was at the height of her career,saying about doing demeulemeester's show preferring to paid with clothes in exchange for money.
