Ok. I think my initial info might be wrong. This might be a Pakistani publication, since this designer got the rave reviews at Pakistani fashion week... People are in an uproar over there because of this spread
 
Here's her excuse:

When contacted, Aqeel vehemently denied any racist angle to the shoot at all. According to her, the choice of a dark-skinned Baloch child was purely incidental. “He works in a garage and wanted some work,” she said. Obviously the parents of usual child models wouldn’t have agreed to the shoot. The pampered little cuties who advertise soap, toothpaste and biscuits on TV may not have looked right for the part but even if they had, no one would have let their child play such a degrading role.

Aqeel’s argument is that she wanted to spark a debate on child labour. She says she is involved with a children’s charity and wanted to highlight how ‘society madams’ employ child labour in their homes. She is educating and supporting the child used in the shoot — it seems the least she can do after exploiting him in this fashion.

So she knew the shoot was degrading...I can kinda see why she did it if she really was trying to "spark" a debate--she definitely did.   It still is a terrible fashion spread and highly racist.

I can see what they were trying to do, those old printings of little dark children serving the upper class of India (before the split) and whites. But this was a big fail. It would have been a lot more powerful if it was a dark model and a white man or woman servant.

You are so right Prazol. But we all know the clears are so revered that none would agree to this shoot. Even if it was to spark debate. She needs to quit.
