"a child from a poor family modeled a Fendi bib, which costs about $100"
The argument from the editors of India Vogue was that they were using real people, not models (which would normally be celebrated) and people shouldn't take fashion "too seriously". Are we also not supposed to take the people depicted in the photos too seriously? Considering the magazine doesn't identify the peoplein the photographs (only the accessories), maybe we're not. The article sited that nearly half of India's population lives on less than $1.25 a day.
Again, I would like to ask...how do you feel about these images?
