PwC UK New Service Line – Undercover Fashion Police

I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried…

Models to spy on their own
Seven top models will reportedly act as spies during London Fashion Week to stop young catwalk stars being bullied into slimming or shedding their clothes for nude shoots…But the organisers of the week, which began this weekend, will have their own spies.

Consultants from the world’s biggest accountancy firm, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, will also be roaming backstage on the lookout for illicit drug use and to ensure designers stick to the ban on models under 16 years

    How, exactly, is this even remotely related to accounting? Are they going to claim this is a test of the organization’s internal controls? It seem’s the issue could be better solved (and cheaper, too) if they simply reviewed documents like birth certificates or random drug tests. That would be the internal control. Walking around backstage? Something tells me the partner on this engagement is under 40, single and looking for a new date…

    Hope this is only inspection based testing and not reperformance, cause we at PwC UK would have a bunch of drug addicts working in our mids. Quite an uncomfortable ambiance for sure 🙂
