Is it really such a "wonderful" fashion world?

Not everything is as rosy nor as pretty nor elegant as we are painted in the fashion world, although they strive to do so. But we all always prefer to see it from this positive, pleasant, even fun perspective, as Ágata Ruiz de la Prada has offered us or the new designers of the catwalks in recent months in Madrid.

However, as in many other areas and places, there have been many sudden, sudden and unexpected deaths, also suicides and even murders. Especially in the models, where not everything is as “fantastic” as it seems, and there is much more diversity than is seen at first sight, at least, in some brands and agencies.
