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.
As a model myself (although I’m a commercial print model, NOT fashion), I think that until the mindset of the public changes (which I think drives the mindset and direction of the fashion industry and designers), this won’t change. Top-notch fashion models make way too much money for them to ignore what drives fashion (thin in in) in my personal opinion.
More and more, the modeling industry as a whole is beginning to recognize that the skinnier is not necessarily the better. I know that your question focuses on fashion models, but it’s a huge industry that transcends just fashion (e.g. fitness models, commercial print models etc) and so fortunately not all models are subject to this kind of pressure. Let’s hope that it changes, and soon!
