A step away from the usual student news, today Young Academic brings some rather British news which has caused quite a stir on Twitter this morning.

Prada is the latest firm to come under fire for its use of child models just weeks after the Marc Jacobs Oh Lola! advert was banned for sexualising 16 year old Dakota Fanning. The latest Miu Miu campaign which features Oscar nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld has been deemed ‘irresponsible’ because it apparently suggests teen suicide.
After last week’s report that his advert was banned comes yet more bad news for Marc Jacobs. On Thursday of last week, the much anticipated Spring Summer 2012 Collection was stolen on its way from Paris to London. There was much speculation over what had happened to the pieces which were worth around £40,000 and now the company has offered a mystery reward for their return.
