Modeling agency owner alleges he lost business after Epstein sex scandal
A modeling agency owner is suing U.S. financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, claiming that Epstein's high-profile legal troubles have unfairly embroiled him and damaged his agency's reputation. Jean-Luc Brunel, the owner of modeling agency MC2, is seeking unspecified damages from Epstein. He says he has known Epstein for years and claims Epstein helped him finance his modeling business. Brunel's lawsuit was filed in January in a Dade County, Florida, court but has received little notice.

Sports Direct admits some 15,000 employed on zero hour contracts

Shoppers wait outside a branch of Sports Direct in Brighton southern EnglandAnswering questions from a British parliamentary committee over its employment practices and the administration of part of one of its fashion businesses, Sports Direct Chairman Keith Hellawell admitted some 15,000 UK staff were on zero hour deals, which do not specify set working hours or guaranteed income. Sports Direct, whose 4,300 permanent UK staff qualify for lucrative bonus share scheme payouts, had previously refused to confirm how many of its workers were on the contracts. Hellawell told the Scottish Affairs Committee the approach offers flexibility for its largely young workforce, some of whom are university students, and allowed the firm to meet demand. Nearly 700,000 people are on zero-hours contracts in their main job, according the UK's Office for National Statistics, a growing figure that has attracted increased political scrutiny.

Tokyo men stay one step ahead in style

Tokyo men stay one step ahead in styleFeminine glamour may turn the most heads at fashion weeks in New York or Paris, but in Tokyo it is the style-conscious men who set the sartorial trends. From sharp futurism to wool-and-denim casuals, the finale of Tokyo Fashion Week put the spotlight largely on menswear, aiming to promote the most dynamic area of Japanese clothes design. "What happens here is probably the future of men's fashion," said Antonio Cristaudo from Pitti Immagine, a collection of fashion industry events in Italy. Such innovation is nowhere more evident than on the streets of Tokyo, from the vintage and skater styles of Ura-Hara to the slick suits of the Marunouchi business district.

Wheelchair on the runway at Tokyo Fashion Week

Wheelchair on the runway at Tokyo Fashion WeekA Japanese designer is challenging accepted ideals of beauty at Tokyo Fashion Week, with an easy-to-wear collection unveiled on the catwalk by models who are blind, wear prosthetic limbs or use a wheelchair. In his unorthodox show for the "tenbo" brand, Takafumi Tsuruta chose a mix of disabled and able-bodied models to showcase his quirky designs, with several of them donning bright yellow wigs. He is the latest designer to celebrate disability at a major fashion week, after an actress with Down's Syndrome and a male amputee model graced runways this year in New York and Milan. Ami Sano, who was born with a rare disorder that left her without limbs except a left foot, said backstage before performing that she "really didn't dream" she would end up modelling at fashion week.

Madonna weighs in on Dolce & Gabbana IVF controversy

Singer Madonna performs at the BRIT music awards at the O2 Arena in Greenwich, LondonMadonna added her voice to the controversy surrounding fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, telling them to "think before you speak" after Dolce described children born to gay couples through fertility treatment as "synthetic." The performer joined other celebrities who criticized the Italian duo when she posted a message on Instagram along with a photograph of herself and a baby from Dolce & Gabbana's 2010/2011 winter collection campaign. There is nothing synthetic about a soul!! So how can we dismiss IVF and surrogacy?" said Madonna, who released her 13th studio album, "Rebel Heart," earlier this month. Pop star Elton John, who with his partner and husband David Furnish is the father of two children conceived through fertility treatment, slammed the designers for the comments and called for a boycott of the fashion brand.

Japanese clothes but few Japanese models at Tokyo Fashion Week

Japanese designer Hirdenori Kumakiri (front 2nd L) smiles with models during his "Beautiful People" 2015-16 autumn/winter collection on March 17, 2015, during Tokyo Fashion WeekTokyo Fashion Week has long been a platform for edgy Japanese designers -- but perhaps more remarkable is just how few Japanese models grace its catwalks. "It’s kind of odd," said 24-year-old Rika Tatsuno, one of the few Japanese models appearing on the Tokyo catwalks, where she reckons she is in an Asian minority of about 10 to 15 percent. "Definitely we would like to see more Japanese models." A lack of racially diverse catwalks is by no means unique to Tokyo, which is vying to compete on the global fashion stage. In Japan, fashion is divided into "wafuku", or traditional Japanese clothing, and "yofuku", which literally means "Western-style clothing" and is now everyday wear.
