I am just concerned about how fashion models promote eating disorder and other health problems. i was wondering if it is possible for you guys to promote healthy lifestyle to one of the well known fashion designers to reduce the risk of the problems.
it is very sad how this is becoming serious looking at future models and people chasing the dream of being fashion models. it would be great if you can promote health fitness to fashion designers so that they can be aware of the risks they putting other people into because they do not want normal size or fat people.
it is better to train them for the future instead of creating eating disorder. it would be a good thing if you guys think about it and try it out to work together with fashion designers in encouraging them to let their models sign for health fitness in order to stay healthy.
Hello Mosa Makgoka,
It starts at home. Parents/caregivers need to teach that everyone is given a talent and/or body shape to work with. Is it only about one percent of the population is naturally model thin? They are the only ones who should apply to model, while the big and strong apply for football, the tall and thin for track, etc. This happens with wrestling, also; growing children trying to compete at a lighter category when they should be getting bigger.
The fashion industry is huge and very fast paced, too fast to be making the clothes in all sizes; that is where the thin model of a certain height comes in, easy on and off of one prototype for a show.
My job as trainer is to work with the people and their families who contact me. We try to save the world; but, realize that we can only reach those in our area. Hopefully, the common sense frame of mind I try to instill will trickle down and around.
Yes, I am trying, every day.
