A poster featuring a cartoon of a scantily clad girl doing drugs and having sex is set to hit the streets this month - and fashion designer Lucie Boshier is making no apologies for it.
The poster, headed, "The fashion industry: Lining up the kids", is the 25-year-old Auckland designer's way of displaying her disgust at the use of young models on the catwalk.
She said she was stung into action after a 12-year-old was used at Australian Fashion Week last September. "Designers are using children - prepubescent girls - to model women's clothes, and they look terrible on them," said Boshier. "It makes women feel inadequate and it makes me feel sick."Link
"Controversial poster - it might get some well needed action against the fashion industry."
