The Council of Fashion Designers have finally released the awaited guidlines in response to calls for a worldwide ban on skinny models.
According to the CFDA's recommendations models must be at least 16 years old to appear on the runway and 18 for catalogue work. Also educating the industry concerning eating disorders and a requirement for models identified with symptoms of weight problems to receive professional help. Additionally, more healthy foods should be available at fashion events.
I personally prefer models that aren't overly skinny, a little fat isn't bad. More healthy foods should be served compare to tons of alcohol. Overall, the guidelines are a good thing. What do you think???
