In the world of designer couture, it seems nothing is too outrageous or provocative… except suicide scenes, that is.
Vice, an online fashion publication, is receiving complaints from both anti-suicide and feminist coalitions, claiming its recent fashion spread “Last Words” is in bad taste. The spread features models in designer clothes acting out famous scenes of women who committed suicide in literature. Many of the outraged argue that the women portrayed are not fictional people but real authors who had real struggles.
The magazine editors have apologized publicly, claimed they did not mean to offend anyone and removed the article from the website.
