Modelling scandal: young girl dies in China after 13 hour fashion show with no medical insurance

Vlada Dzyuba, 14, from the industrial city of Perm in Russian Federation, missed school to work on catwalks on a "three month contract" to realise her dream of becoming a supermodel.

The teen had been recruited by a prominent Chinese modelling agency, it is understood.

She died on Friday of "multiple organ dysfunction syndrome", according to a medical report seen by the Global Times which stated that "the young model was suffering from septicopyemia, or a type of blood poisoning, at the ICU, with multiple visceral organs damaged, liver dysfunction and renal insufficiency".

"Modeling work is not manual labor after all, just shows and photo shoots and making poses, and there are breaks", he said.

Dzyuba reportedly suffered from sever meningitis and exhaustion.

As she waited for her next appearance, her temperature soared.

World number one Simona Halep is adamant a disappointing WTA Finals campaign has not dented her confidence, maintaining Friday that she was an "improved" player.

The head of the Perm modelling agency behind her trip, Elvira Zaitseva, said: 'No-one expected it to lead to such consequences. Dzyuba had been on a three-month assignment in Shanghai, during which she was only supposed to work three hours a week.

Her agent made a decision to cancel the next day's event and sent her to the railway station on Wednesday morning to take a train back to Shanghai, Zheng said.

'I didn't sleep myself and was calling her constantly, begging her to go to hospital'.

She was sought after for big fashion shows and there are claims she was on a gruelling 13-hour shoot shortly before falling into a coma.

According to its website, ESEE now has about 71 foreign female models working in China and also employs 38 foreign males. It is unclear what role he played in seeking medical care for the model when she needed it. Zheng said she had 16 events, with about 20 days of total work.

She admitted not personally checking the girl's contract and medical insurance.
