So are all of us models going to stand in solidarity with @sleepyllama and not work with Vivy and dUCk Groups or nah?
As the issue caught the attention of many people including none other than Malaysian model Alicia Amin, who was clearly unhappy about the situation. The outspoken fashion model-actress recently posted a series of statements on her Instagram Stories to share her two cents.
First she posted a story with a caption “So are all of us models going to stand in solidarity with @sleepyllama and not work with Vivy and dUCk Groups or nah?” She then continued to post both a picture of Nia’s past designs and Vivy’s newly-launched collection, for the public to compare. She even remarked, “Even the lighting and the mood are the same.”
Instead of apologising or paying homage, she is using charity as a scapegoat? I’m gonna sell drugs and then donate to (orphans) since it doesn’t matter how you get the cash just as long as you help.
But, it didn’t stop there. Yesterday, the Asia’s Next Top Model alum seemed to be putting Vivy Yusof on blast again. After Vivy had explained that “The Artsy dUCk” was meant to help less privileged children, Alicia accused her of using the kids as a cover up.
“Instead of apologising or paying homage, she is using charity as a scapegoat?” said the 25-year-old model. Alicia also posted a status of insinuation that she would gladly sell drugs and donate the money to orphans as it would not be a problem to make money in any way to help. “I’m gonna sell drugs and then donate to (orphans) since it doesn’t matter how you get the cash just as long as you help.”
Nia Atasha (sleepylllama) had expressed her regret over Vivy’s actions that replicated the idea she had previously shared with a local brand in 2018. However, Vivy rejected the allegations and defended her hard-working employees for the collection.
