Dear Models/Designers and everyone else in SL.

Dear Models/Designers and everyone else in SL.

The other day I had a ”grevious” (to quote) conversation with the CEO of a fashion brand here in SL about forbidding their models to wear or even BE SEEN wearing a certain other brand. I also know for a fact, and I know others do too as you may be someone who has experienced it, that this certain brand has been telling agencies NOT to do shows for this other certain designer.

Me and my Partner run a non-profit business called THE FASHION TELLER. We create fashion books at no charge for designers, and we have a lot of fun doing this, as do our models. This ‘other’ brand is one of the sponsors of our upcoming book, much to the disliking of the BIG BRAND. Is it right that this Brand is contacting our models who already casted for this book, they cannot wear this other brand? Is it right that this brand tries to stop agencies putting on shows for this other brand? Is it right this brand, without a contract, tells ”ITS” models they cannot wear or be seen in this other brand on flickr etc?

Who gives anyone the right to do that? And then, When confronting them about this personal fued they have with each other of which they inflict on individuals…it is clearly denied. When we know it happens.

I’ve said all I needed to say. I have not done anything wrong. All I have done is confronted somoene who thinks they have the power to dictacte what indivduals CANNOT wear or be seen in. And feels the need to tell agencies they SHOULD NOT do shows for this other brand.

It is against ToS, and is a form of harrassment. Keep you personal fued with another designer between yourselves, rather than bringing it up on individuals and other businesses in here who take a neutral stance. Its not fair.

Thats All I have to say.

Editorial Clarity-Flux


The Fashion Teller values itself as an INDEPENDENT elite group that loves to do artistic projects outside any influence but our team. We take NEUTRAL stance on any drama or feud between models or/and designers, as we consider it none of our business. Any drama or fights should strictly be confined in between the feuding parties and not get anyone else involve. We believe it is very unprofessional and unethical for any agency, business or designer to forbid or restrict the actions of their models outside the workplace such as prohibiting models to wear a certain designer’s outfits on their own time/blog/flickr/work. It should ALWAYS be the model’s right to choose what they want to do, wear or blog on their own time. COERCION OR HARASSMENT MUST NOT BE TOLERATED AND SHOULD BE REPORTED AS ABUSE TO LINDEN LABS.

It is very sad and unfortunate that many models feel like they don’t have a voice, especially the new ones. They are afraid to speak up for what is right as they  fear of being labeled difficult or worse, be ejected from the group or blacklisted. Let me tell you something. YOU HAVE THE POWER but if you don’t stand up, you will always be treated like a servant or slave. No one has any power over you unless you allow them to. Any VIPS, Agencies or Big Name Designers got where they are because of YOU, the public. And you have the power to take them down their high horse. You have the power and right to decide which business to support in SL. Why spent your money on someone that restricts your freedom and rights? Support businesses that actually values you and respects what you do.


Now that this is out in the open, they are releasing a statement that this is all a lie. LOL. You just called all those models, agency owners, magazine owners, and bloggers you coerced…LIARS.
We all know the truth. GOD knows the truth. Shame on YOU.
