Anorexic Models: The Fallout Continues

Anorexic Models: The Fallout Continues

The fashion industry is finally catching up to the fact that anorexic models have no place on the catwalk. It seems the era of stick-thin models is slowly coming to an end.

Yesterday, the Italian government and fashion industry announced a joint effort to combat anorexia with a self-regulating code, which will come into effect next week.

What took them so long?

Is this just a ploy to divert public attention from two tragic deaths of extremely skinny, young models who – despite obviously suffering from anorexia – continued to be employed by the fashion industry?

That remains to be seen, meanwhile, this self-imposed campaign against anorexic models “includes attention to the “full-bodied” and a commitment to add larger sizes to collections.”
