The Terry Richardson controversy continues as now shoe brand Aldo has released statement saying they are distancing themselves from the fashion photographer. In a statement to Buzzfeed, Aldo’s PR Director Wendie Godbout says, “[We] are not currently working with Terry Richardson and we have no plan to work with him in the future.” This comes after similar statements from Vogue, H&M and W Magazine stemming from sexual misconduct allegations. Richardson has collaborated with the brand for at least nine consecutive seasons so it seems like a major move for them to make after four years of work together. Last week, New York Magazine, did a profile on Richardson where he tried to defend himself. It appears that the profile may have done more harm than good in this case. We’ll update as soon as more news is released.
