France: Model says Lebanese designer dropped her from Paris show because she’s Israeli

Via The Times of Israel:
Maison Rabih Kayrouz evades answering when asked if he canceled Arbel Kynan’s appearance after hearing that she lives in Tel Aviv

An Israeli fashion model said that she was denied a job offer from a Lebanon-born French designer because of her nationality.

Arbel Kynan told At magazine in Israel earlier this week that Maison Rabih Kayrouz canceled a gig that had been lined up for her at Paris Fashion Week on January 20 in Paris. She would have modeled the designer’s clothes in the haute couture part of the show.

Kynan said her agent received an email that her invitation was canceled and that it informed her that the reason was because she is Israeli.

Kynan had told employees of Kayrouz’s fashion house during a photo shoot for the show that she’s living in Tel Aviv.

“An hour ago I got an email from my agency telling me the client is Lebanese and isn’t interested in having me take part in the show because I live in Tel Aviv, Israel,” Kynan wrote on Instagram on Monday. “That’s literally what the email said.”
