Balenciaga finds itself at the centre of claims of model abuse, following an attack from the brand’s ex-casting director James Scully.

The ex-director exposed Balenciaga’s apparent inhumane casting process and described fellow casting directors Gregori Bona and Rami Fernandes as “serial abusers”…

Apparently more than 100 models were left out unattended for over three hours, while waiting in a shady dark staircase for their casting, as the directors went to lunch without any formal notice or update.

… Talk about being cruel!
