London Fashion Week has been plunged into scandal after a model alleged she was raped after one of the shows. Stars from across the globe flew in to the British capital to watch the world's top models strut down the runway during the event, which ran from September 17-21.
But the style celebration has been rocked after one of the models, who remains nameless, alleged she was sexually assaulted at a hotel after a day on the catwalk, according to the New York Post. New York-based hairdresser Shawn Mount, 30, who is married to Chanel model Heidi Mount, was arrested on suspicion of rape.
He was bailed to return to a London police station in November. No charges have been filed. A spokesperson from London's Scotland Yard police department says, "We received a complaint of a serious sexual assault at 1.30am on September 20 at a central London hotel. The 24-year-old victim was referred to the Haven Center (a victim support center). A 30-year-old man was arrested on September 21 on suspicion of rape and bailed to return to a London police station in November. He has not been charged and we are still investigating."
