I don't necessarily think that this is pervasive or true, because gosh knows I've met so many wonderful, creative and nice people that work in fashion and in magazines. But when I saw this quote posted on a friend's Facebook page (who works in fashion at a Conde Nast magazine), it made me really wonder. Maybe it's a self-perpetuating stereotype rather than an actual truth?
People in the fashion industry are really contaminated with bad habits. A certain human kindness evaporates once you make a career in fashion. In the beginning you’re really treated badly and then you seem to get accustomed to it. - Joerg Koch, editor of 032c (from a New York Times interview)
