November 11. 2017

Harvey Weinstein

Disgraced Hollywood movie producer, Harvey Weinstein, who is a rapist and sexual predator, used his fashion business to target models. Weinstein is currently under investigation by police in three countries for rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment of multiple women. Over 90 women have come forward, famous and non-famous, alleging Weinstein engaged in unlawful sexual behavior regarding them.

Weinstein underwrote the fashion business, Marchesa, for his wife Georgina Chapman. However, he also used it as an avenue to to illegally prey on models, none of whom wanted him. So, Weinstein sexually took what he wanted from women without their consent, which is a serious crime in America and around the world. Weinstein's wife has left him over his criminal misconduct that is not only bankrupting him, but The Weinstein Company as well.

Weinstein, 65, is best known for his pioneering career in the independent film industry, but over the last two decades he has also carved out a significant business in fashion executive producing the television show "Project Runway," investing in the clothing brand Halston, and backing the high-end womenswear company Marchesa, which was co-founded by his wife, former model Georgina Chapman. The foray generated a profitable TV franchise, lucrative partnerships and cachet among the global jet set.

But that success was only one of the benefits for Weinstein. In interviews with the Los Angeles Times, nearly a dozen people with ties to the industry including models, casting directors, publicists and executives connected to "Project Runway" said that he used fashion as a pipeline to women.
