Condé Nast Ends Internship Program After Lawsuits

Condé Nast has decided to discontinue its internship program following a class-action lawsuit filed by two former interns saying that they were paid less than $1 dollar an hour, Women's Wear Daily reported on Wednesday.
Condé Nast, which houses magazine powerhouses like Vanity Fair, GQ and Vogue, was sued in June by former W Magazine intern Lauren Ballinger and former New Yorker intern Matthew Leib, both who claimed their employers had violated federal labor laws.
Interns currently employed with Condé Nast will not be affected by the decision and are allowed to keep their internships until the previously determined date, Women's Wear Daily also reported.
The decision for Condé Nast to end their internship program comes while the lawsuit against them is still pending. However, this is not the first case of media interns taking legal action against their employers. The same law firm handling the Condé Nast case is also representing an intern with Harper's Bazaar who sued Hearst Corporation in 2012 for being made to work up to 55 hours per week with no pay. In June, intern Eric Glatt won his lawsuit against Fox Searchlight Pictures for using unpaid interns in the production of the 2010 film, "Black Swan."

Palais Royal by Pierre Hardy

The French brand celebrates 10 years of its Palais Royal boutique with a capsule collection inspired by Daniel Buren's graphic stripes and Paul Bury's optical illusions, which can be seen in the public artwork at the Palais Royal from the store at 156, galerie de Valois.
With experimental shapes, sculptural styles, laser cut leather, stiletto heels and graphic trainers, Pierre Hardy's latest collection draws heavily on architecture. After studying fine art and then learning the footwear design ropes at Christian Dior and Hèrmes, where he was design director for women's footwear, the designer founded his own eponymous shoe brand in 1999. In 2003, he opened his first Parisian boutique in the Palais Royal gardens, a monumental center of French history. To celebrate a decade in the Paris hotspot, Pierre Hardy created Palais Royal, an ultra graphic capsule collection and homage to two of the most famous pieces of art at Palais Royal: Buren's columns and Paul Bury's fountain. A pair of sneakers and a stiletto shoe in graphic black and white leather stripes are collection standouts, packing just as much of a style punch in flats or heels.
