China agency denies dead Russian model, 14, was overworked

China agency denies dead Russian model, 14, was overworked

Schoolgirl Vlada Dzyuba, who also worked as a model since 12, had died last Friday (Oct 27) after she collapsed and fell into a coma, following claims that she worked 13 hours in a fashion show in Shanghai, China, on Wednesday (Oct 24).

According to preliminary findings, Vlada Dzyuba died of "multiple organ failure" linked with blood poisoning, Andrey Kulikov, Russia's Consul in Shanghai, told RIA Novosti.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said sepsis is the body's extreme response to an infection.

An autopsy would be required to definitively establish the final cause of the young model's death, Kulikov added.

"Children are the most valuable in a mother's life".

There was no immediate reply from Shanghai Fashion Week or Russian officials in China.

"China is recruiting an increasing number of - often very young - models from Russian Federation and especially Siberia to work at catwalk shows", the daily wrote. And then her temperature shot up.

Carrie Fang, the chief agent for ESEE who was at Dzyuba's side when she died, fought back tears and told a press conference that the young Russian had been enjoying the two months she spent in China before her death. However, the agency ESEE Model, denied they overworked her, though admitted her contract had no limit on her working hours. Dzyuba's mother Oksana was expected to fly to Shanghai this week.

Mrs Dzyuba told the television programme NTV: "She was calling me, saying 'Mama, I am so exhausted".

China is recruiting an increasing number of young models, often between 14 and 16, from Russian Federation and especially Siberia to work at catwalk shows. "I want to sleep".

"We want to tell everybody the truth, what we are thinking and what has happened, especially the Russian people, they lost one of their attractive daughters", said Zheng, adding most of Dzyuba's assignments lasted between four and eight hours a day and she had regular time off.

ESSE Model Management has dismissed claims that the Russian teen was employed under a "slave contract".

She was found to be suffering from chronic meningitis "compounded by severe exhaustion" and remained in a coma for two days before she died. Most of her work was completed within eight hours.

After Shanghai, Dzyuba traveled to Yiwu in neighboring Zhejiang Province but a model shoot was canceled because she felt unwell and she returned to Shanghai. The contract didn't mention specific working hours. "It's too much risk: in future we will tell the team not to sign models below 16". "If they feel stressed, we will communicate with them", he relayed. "[The] laws in China have no direct regulations, [so] it's OK to recruit minors", reported AP.

A Shanghai Fashion Week representative told the Global Times Sunday that Shanghai Fashion Week was investigating the teenager's death as well.
