Skinny Does Not Equate To Models

Undersized and skinny models have been banned from Spain’s Fashion Week. And it looks like with the New York Fashion Week coming up, such a trend would be following suit.

Well, at least that is a good move. And according to the Council of Fashion Designers of America, they are going to take a stand on the weight debate that is going in and about the world of fashion and modeling. The committee of the fashion week would be working to make guidelines for both designers and models. Too skinny and you’re out.

Von Furstenberg, the CFDA president, does state, “The fashion industry is acknowledging this weight debate as a serious issue. Together, with the medical professionals, we are committing to promoting good health and helping these young girls.”
