On Wednesday, Lynn Tesoro, a New York publicist, sued Jalouse editor Jennifer Eymere and Marie-Jose Susskind-Jalou in the Manhattan state Supreme Court claiming “assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, slander and/or libel.” Though the lawsuit did not specify the circumstances of the assault beyond that the incident took place at Avery Fisher Hall on Sunday, Women’s Wear Daily reported the incident took place at the Posen show after city fire marshals removed about 60 seats, most from the front row.

Apparently, Eymere had begun arguing with Tesoro, whose firm was tasked with promoting the show, because Eymere’s mother found herself without a seat. Tesoro is a well-known publicist who also promoted clients like Oscar de la Renta, fur designer Dennis Basso and Japan’s Tadashi Shoji at the Fashion Week.

The tiff escalated with Eymere, Eymere’s sister, and Eymere’s mother screaming French fury, and then allegedly, the French fashion aristocrats slapped the New York publicist in the face.


Eymere later told the Women’s Wear Daily, “It was a small slap … It was not strong. I didn’t hurt her, it was just to humiliate her. She humiliated my mom, and I humiliated her in front of her crew. Voila. I just said at the end, “Now you know you don’t fuck with French people.’”


Anyway, that admission is now in print, and we’d have a chance to watch whether Eymere can get away with it by claiming grievous provocation – but that chance seems slim.

There are conflicting versions of the story making rounds as the journal also noted that another person said that it was Eymere’s mother and not Eymere who struck Tesoro. Or, maybe, all of them had a go, since the lawsuit also includes Eymere’s sister as a defendant.

The New York Fashion Week, which attracts hundreds of thousands of models, designers, and consumers to the city ended on Thursday.
