The designer has been dressing Perry, rapper Nicki Minaj, singer Natasha Bedingfield, supermodel Heidi Klum and candidates of Germany's Next Top Model (which Klum hosts), among others. Germany's Next Top Model is a franchise of Tyra banks' America's Next Top Model, where Banks is also seen wearing Rajo Laurel in their most recent cycle. 

One's designs have also been featured in various international magazines, among them Industry and Tantalum, where his work appeared on one issue's triple cover.

Katy Perry, meanwhile, went under fire for dressing young girls — her fans — as miniature versions of her various music video persona at the MuchMusic Awards in Toronto, Canada last June 17.

One girl is dressed like Perry in the "California Gurls" music video, where Perry is seen with cupcakes for breasts and cherries for nipples.

In a discussion at The Talk, the hosts agree that the act "sexualizes the young girls too young."

"Little girls should not present their bodies like they're women," says The Talk host, Aisha Tyler. - Rappler.com
