Det var via High Fashion Talk, Clueless Kid och The Basement som en användare berättade att han kommit i kontakt med den ryska designern Gosha Rubchinskiy via WhatsApp och Instagram. En nyhet som snabbt spreds i andra grupper. Den unga killen menar att Gosha erbjudit honom en modellmöjlighet innan han bad om bilder från badrummet.

Detta trots att pojken berättat att han enbart är 16 år gammal och att han hoppas att han får en moped i födelsedagspresent. Användaren har även bifogat screenshots från konversationen och samt en bild från ett FaceTime-samtal där man ser Goshas ansikte.

”Gosha Rubchinskiy has recently been messaged. I’ve been given admin permission to post here because of how these messages are. Would like to show how Gosha can’t really be trusted as a designer. Below are some screenshots of Gosha messaging me, he carried on when I told him my age. He’s now blocked my number and Insta and deleted messages, but I have screenshotted them. Video also attached of 30 seconds FaceTime just to show his face.”

Gosha ska senare ha blockerat hans nummer, Instagram och raderat konversationerna. Ännu finns inga uttalanden från Gosha eller hans team. Den ryska designern har på senare år blivit en av de mest omtalade inom street- och modevärlden med samarbeten med b.la. adidas, Burberry och Levi’s.

Nu har Hypebeast postat ett uttalande från Goshas team kring händelsen, där man meddelar att bilderna och hela händelsen förvrängts via raderade meddelanden för att förvränga storyn. Förfrågan om bilderna från Goshas sida skulle vara en casting till en kommande lookbook. Se hela uttalandet nedan.

“This was a street casting for a look book shoot. The person sent a direct mail to us asking to be considered for the casting. This happens all the time. We have been doing street casting for shows and look books for many years now. We will be going to London to cast the look book next week. Gosha did a face time with him and then he asked for a photo to have on file with all the others. The person said he wasn’t alone and couldn’t take photo so Gosha suggested he just quickly goes to the bathroom and take a quick photo on the mirror, so he could show the rest of the team and have it on file. This exchange as depicted on the Instagram post of Supreme leaks news has been altered and taken out of context. It is clear there has been modifications and deletions to make it look bad where in fact it was a simple request for a photo to facilitate the street casting. The person started contacting us very often demanding an answer about the casting and became a bit weird. So Gosha blocked him and we think this is why the person is trying to make Gosha look bad, and turn what was a totally innocent street casting look something that it was not. We have been doing such direct street casting for ten years and we have never had such a problem, therefore this is invalid.”
