Quote of the day: Calvin Klein
“I used to get great pleasure discovering models, finding young women and men who had never modeled before, and took them on trips around the world. But now, it’s the world of the Kardashians, and people are interested only in how many followers a model has on social media and that’s how they negotiate her or his fee. I am happy that I built a global brand without social media.”

It must have been such a different world when he began – perhaps even a purer one. Just because someone has a lot of followers doesn’t necessarily make them the best person for the job – makes you wonder which famous models wouldn’t have made it if social media had been a thing back then!
