The Biz: Raf’s Moment, Vogue’s Age Limit

May 3rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Man of the moment, Raf Simons covers the latest issue of i-D Magazine in an impressive shot by Willy Vanderperre. Inside, the newly minted Dior designer muses on his final collection for Jil Sander | I-D ONLINE

In a move that surprises no one, Vogue has issued a ban on models under the age of 16. Good thing they got that Vogue Italia cover with the 14 year old Thairine Garcia out for April, because the ban goes into effect with the June issues.

One has to wonder though, how much of this is lip service and how much is going to usher in legitimate change? Girls are still scouted while they are tweens, placed on development boards, sent out on jobs, etc. regardless of whether or not Vogue decrees under 16 year old models unconscionable. That said, having the world’s most prominent magazine take a stand for the rights of models is a major step in the right direction. | NY TIMES

Hong Kong’s YGM is in talks to buy Aquascutum, good news for the troubled label that recently fell into administration. Considering the shared heritage and trench coat stronghold that Burberry and Aquascutum share, it is interesting to look at the differences between the two brands. | WSJ
