Marc Jacobs Doesn't Pay His Models For Their Work

^I completely agree. Models should be treated like any other employees when they walk in your show. I see why smaller brands would pay their runway models in trade but with major businesses like LVMH I fail to see how this can be justified.
Of course the very young models won't mind getting a handbag instead of a real paycheck because they don't have many responsibilities and hopefully have parents that can financially support them. But once they're trying to be independent and realize they're working so hard and can't even afford their rent or pay their bills I don't think they will get this excited over a Marc Jacobs bag anymore.
BTW, is anyone else seriously shocked about the fact that the train at the Louis Vuitton show apparently cost $8 Million? How can you spend so much money on props and not pay your models at all? Ridiculous.
