14-year-old Russian model collapses and dies during a 12 Hours fashion show in China | Photos

Russian model, Vlada Dzyuba died after suffering from "utter exhaustion" during a three month modelling assignment in China.

The teen model collapsed into a coma after a gruelling 12-hour fashion show in Shanghai.

Sadly, she never regained consciousness and died two days later.

She was found to be suffering from chronic meningitis.

It has been claimed the teen was on a "slave labour" contract and had been too afraid to seek medical treatment.

Officially she was only allowed to work three hours a week.

A number of young Russian models are recruited to China, but Vlada's tragic case has raised concerns over working conditions for the models and how they can be exploited.

Moscow is set to demand an explanation over the conditions Vlada was living in during her time working in Asia.
