Remember how Vogue India put a $100 bib on an impoverished child for a recent shoot? The same one where a barefoot man held a $200 Burberry umbrella? Well, the former features editor of the magazine, Sameer Reddy, has written a piece for Newsweek, and he says: "The reality is that, for some Indians, the world has become a playground, and luxury goods that the West has coveted for generations are now within their grasp… Perhaps this particular story could have been handled differently, but the idea that a fashion editorial, or the eager consumption of luxury products by extension, plays any serious part in the problem of Indian poverty is ridiculous; overpopulation, underdevelopment, caste stigma and lack of adequate education infrastructure are more like it."
