Pierre-Yves Roussel joins Tory Burch as CEO
Pierre-Yves Roussel stepped down as chairman and CEO of LVMH Fashion Group earlier this year, and was said to remain with the group as a special adviser to Bernard Arnault, but there's been a change of plans. Instead, Roussel will join his new wife, Tory Burch, as the CEO of her eponymous business, starting in early 2019. "This was not something we took lightly," Burch said of the appointment to Business of Fashion. "Until I met Pierre-Yves, there isn't anyone I thought would be right for it." {Business of Fashion

Gosha Rubchinskiy's casting process sheds a light on the industry's messy morals 
Over the weekend, Gosha Rubchinskiy came under fire for presumably asking a teen boy to send him nudes over social media. The designer later addressed the accusations, saying that this is simply how he casts models for lookbooks and shows. Sure, Rubchinskiy's business is built on youth and street culture, but this predator-like casting process brings up uncomfortable questions about how the fashion industry operates. "Where should the line be drawn: on how young is too young, on what's acceptable to ask, and on who contacts whom," writes Cam Wolf for GQ. "Even if Rubchinskiy is telling the truth, that he was merely asking for photos that would be used for a street casting, is it acceptable for designers — for anyone — to make these requests?" {GQ}

H&M pledges to change working conditions and improve wages 
H&M wants to set an example for the rest of the industry by improving wages for garment workers. "Every garment worker should earn a wage that is sufficient to live on," the company said in a statement, on the day it was hosting a fair living wage summit in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. "It is a fundamental human right." In addition to hosting the two-day event, the Swedish retailer commissioned a report by the Ethical Trading Initiative to evaluate its efforts to promote fair living wages over the past five years. The study flagged a need for improvement in the basic pay rate for all workers, especially for women. {WWD}
