A budding teenage supermodel has angered several fashion labels after lying about her age in order to appear in top New York Fashion Week shows.
Agents representing Valerija Sestic told at least a dozen designers including Tory Burch, Rodarte and Oscar de la Renta, that she was 16.
In fact, she is still 15, meaning labels that employed her have flouted industry guidelines on the use of underage models.
Her agency, Women Management, has since admitted that she will not turn 16 until October 21.
But that did not stop them from ignoring a similar directive at Milan Fashion Week, as she appeared on the catwalk at yesterday’s D&G show.
Today, fashion designers told how they had been in the dark about the youngster’s true age.
Donna Karan’s press office refused to comment on Valerija’s age, but a spokesman for Tory Burch said they had been told Valerija was 16.
They told the Wall Street Journal: ‘We are conscious not to use models under 16.’
The Council of Fashion Designers of America issued its guidelines on underage models in 2007. They ask that members keep girls younger than 16 off the catwalk and do not allow girls younger than 18 to work past midnight at fittings or photo shoots.
