Complaint Review: Luxe Brand International -
Luxe Brand International Karenn Elle Fashion Mongul Luxe Brand Int'l Fashion Show "We are not about the money." SCAM
[http://luxebrandinternational.com/] or [https://www.karenellefashionmogul.com/]
This runway production/consultation/whatever is a SCAM. They target beginning, aspiring, and upcoming talent such as models, designers, hair and makeup artist. They make you pay a "fee" to be a part of their show. This fee can go towards a "red carpet photo package" OR have it refunded 2 days after the show.
Some models got a good chunk of photos, others on got 2-3 photos. For the refund, they don't give it to you and they will ignore your messages if you approach them about money. I filed a scam report to my bank, and their investigation agreed that I fell victim to their scam.
As for the quality of their "fashion show": they couldn't get a designer for the show I was in, so they bought clothes that probably came from Ross and cut it up to look "designer" or "couture". As for the audience: only a handful of the models' guests and/or parents were there.
The show was held in a small conference meeting room in a hotel near the airport, not a lot of room. There was 1 hair and 1 makeup artist to do 20+ models for the show. A lot of the models didn't get their hair and makeup and had to resort to doing their own looks to help the artists. At least they decency of putting money into a small runway platform. I'll give them that.
The worst part of the experience was that during show prep, they had the audacity to say "We are not about the money. We are about exposing you guys to fashion industry." A huge middle finger to the models, designers, and HMUA (hair & makeup artists). They definitely exposed us to the fashion industry, the SHADY, unprofessional side of the industry.
This company gives itself 5 stars and positive reviews on all other sites. They pose as "models" and claim that the company is legitimate.
