ABBEY LEE TALKS FOOD AND FASHION WEEK

ABBEY LEE TALKS FOOD AND FASHION WEEK

She didn’t take part in this year’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia because she is busy filming the mythical action movie Gods of Egypt.
But model Abbey Lee Kershaw has had plenty of experience with the event and told MailOnline the local fashion industry doesn’t take enough care of models backstage.
The 26-year-old Australian said Fashion Week organisers need to ‘supply more nutrients backstage’.

‘It’s quite rare that you find models taken care of backstage,’ Kershaw told MailOnline.
‘As an industry I think there could be more done to keep girls’ energy levels up.’

Kershaw added that she did not know why Sydney Fashion Week was under catered.
‘I’m not sure whether it’s a money thing, or whether people don’t think about it, or whether there’s just not anybody hired that should be thinking about it.’

Abbey walked the red carpet of the Strictly Ballroom The Musical premiere in Sydney on Saturday night wearing an Alex Perry gown, where she spoke to MailOnline.
The actress walked the red carpet with fellow Gods of Egypt star Courtney Eaton, 18.
The movie, which is shooting in Sydney, also stars Gerard Butler, Geoffrey Rush and Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
Gods of Egypt is an Adventure/Fantasy film that sees a common thief a mythical god on a quest through Egypt and will be released in 2016.

Kershaw would not comment on the ‘personal health’ of fellow model Cassi Van Den Dungen, whose slight frame caused a major controversy when she walked in Alex Perry’s runway show on Monday.
Fashion designer Perry faced intense criticism for his fashion show on Monday and he later said he ‘recoiled’ when he saw images of the show.
Alex told the Today Show that he shouldn’t have put models like Cassi on the runway.
‘It’s not an image I think is good to put forward,’ he said.

‘It was a serious lack of judgement on my part that I let that happen.
‘I’m not excusing it at all because I don’t think it’s right, but 14 hour days, you try to get everything finished in time.
‘I got distracted. I chatted to Cassi I’ve known her for a long time. I should have made that call. I was off the ball.’
Unsure: Kershaw said she did not know if Fashion Week was under funded or under organised. She is pictured here in New York in 2010

Cassi’s agent, Helena Vitolins from Work Agency, hit back at critics, saying they were subjecting Cassi to a ‘witch hunt’.
She added that people had to accept that models were always going to be skinny.
‘There’s not going to be day when a size 14 model walks on the catwalk and everyone knows that,’ she told TheFIX.
