LVMH — the parent company of labels including Louis Vuitton, Rimowa and Dior — is being sued for $10 million USD by make-up artist Sammy Mourabit. In the lawsuit, Mourabit claims that LVMH originally offered him a $1 million USD-a-year salary to be global artistic director Make Up For Ever, a cosmetics brand owned by the luxury conglomerate.

According to the suit, Mourabit states that a contract was agreed in August 2017, before being rescinded by Make Up For Ever chief executive Nicolas Cordier on October 27. Speaking about the lawsuit – which is based around “fraudulent inducement to contract” — Mourabit told Business of Fashion that he “left major clients, major personal clients, with tremendous amounts of money lost and I did that for 12 months, turning down opportunities after opportunities, turning down fashion shows because I want to be able to work with them.”
