This week, H&M has been taking heat when they came clean about photoshopping models’ heads on a perfect computer generated body for their Shop Online. Instead of using real models, the fashion retail clothing company photoshops the skin color of the ‘mannequin’ to match the model’s face.
This is just one more example of how the standard is being set by computer generated perfection.
H&M Spokesman Hacan Anderson reportedly said it was “regrettable if they had led anyone to believe the virtual mannequins were real bodies’ and that wasn’t their intention.” Sooo why not just use mannequins to avoid the confusion?
What is your response to this?
