Australian model Cassi Van Den Dungen, who shot to fame as a contestant on 'Australia's Next Top Model' has shocked with her thin appearance during the recent Alex Perry fashion show at Sydney Fashion Week. Cassi has used her Instagram account to deny the claims, posing photos of meals and adding hashtags such as #lovefood, #iamwhoiam and #dealwithit.
Meanwhile, designer Alex Perry was criticized for using the model but he has now issued an apology, commenting that he also believes Cassi is worryingly thin looking:
"I looked at that footage and I recoiled from it and the image. That's not the image that I think is a good one to put forward. It's certainly not what I've presented my brand about."
