Anorexic Models

Anorexic Models

In the How to Become Anorexic and How to Be Anorexic posts, we have raised a number of questions about eating disorders and anorexic models. It seems so simple: the fashion industry has to do something about this growing problem.

The pressure to ban strutting “skeletons” from the catwalk is growing. A few days ago, Armani, Prada and other major Italian fashion houses, announced what appears to be a decision to impose a voluntary ban on skinny models. Hooray!

And now – after a recent death of a young model caused by anorexia nervosa – a major Brazilian fashion show has banned ultra-skinny models under the age of 16 from these events.

This is obviously good news, but it begs the question: Is fashion worth dying for?
