Fashion is an industry often perceived as fundamentally centered on promoting ideals of ‘perfection’. But this is a fatal mischaracterisation…
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Attorney Ashton Cooper who not only is a Legal Attorney for Family Law (amongst taking on various cases relating to Housing, Public Benefits Consumer matters etc.), he is also branching into Entertainment Law for tv, film and fashion! Mr Cooper shares his wealth of experience and knowledge within the legal profession (and beyond), not to mention, his invaluable input into making sure his model & actress daughter, Christina Cooper (who we have previously interviewed) understands her various contracts.
Model. Actress. Music Producer. Christina Cooper does it all! It was only last year that we interviewed Christina as part of our London Fashion Week 2016 features week and since then, this talented young lady has gone on to new horizons which includes signing to 'The One Models' based in Milan, gracing VOGUE.COM...
We caught up with the wonderful Annette Stepanian, who is an attorney and creative business owner whilst helping creative professionals and entrepreneurs lay a legal foundation for their business.
With less than 3 years in the modelling industry, Christina Cooper has fast become a model to look out for. The LA native model with Jamican & Chinese heritage, has featured in New York Fashion Week and Vogue, modelled for the likes of Harold Kensington and Victoria Secrets just to name a few. We were lucky enough to speak to Christina and find out her views with regards to health and future legislations within the modelling industry.
At the age of 21 years old, Australian model Rosie Nelson made headlines last year, after being told she needed to lose more weight (despite weighing 8 stone at the time) by a UK leading modeling agency. She soon decided to take action against the treatment of models by starting a campaign for the UK to pass a law in order to protect models from being dangerously skinny. We were able to talk with Rosie and hear her views on the UK possibly adopting such legislation.
