An Australian designer has launched an extraordinary attack on celebrities and their stylists because they refused to pay her and damaged her clothing.
Jaime Major, from Perth, runs a fashion company in Los Angeles and has dressed stars including the British singer Rita Ora and the Belgian artist Gotye.
But on Sunday the 32-year-old posted a series of memes on Instagram to lash out to the entertainment industry, which, according to its designers, treats unfairly.

In this meme, Major complained that celebrity stylists tell her they don’t have a budget to pay her – but then share pictures of the lavish tours of their customers
Major says she is fed up with giving outfits to the stars for free, just to get publicity for her work.
It means that she often spends a dress free of charge for 16 hours a day.
Sometimes the celebrities turn around and refuse to wear it and other times she doesn’t get credit or recognition, she says.
In the memes, she also refers to celebrities who return dresses with period spots and other damage.
In a long Instagram post on Monday, Major responded to concerned fans to assure them she had no psychological breakdown.
She wrote: & # 39; Hey guys, lots of very worried messages. Thank you – I am wonderful. & # 39;
The designer then explained why she took a break in the industry.
& # 39; I have had great experiences, but in the end running a fashion company was 80% logistics and 20% creative. I am not creatively fulfilled, & she wrote.
& # 39; The magic moments were balanced by too much stress and 16-hour days with no end in sight. It is not good for my mental health and it takes all joy out of it. I have always been told to keep silent about all the nasty things and to take it easy.
& # 39; I let go of my examples and close a chapter and wanted to shed some light on some of the traumatic yet hilarious things that have happened and I am sure that many other creatives may be affected.
& # 39; Who knows, some stylists / celebrities hold more responsibility for other designers who face the same problems.
& # 39; And I’m sorry for the stylists who are really professional and respect the work involved. & # 39;
Mrs. Major signed off by telling fans that she is OK.
& # 39; Again – I am doing great, the happiest I have been in a long time. Thank you for your concern. & # 39;
