No To Super Skinny Models
The 19 holders of an international publication known for fashion, trends, beauty, style and catwalks come together to give life to a Health Initiative, which seek to encourage a focus healthier on the body image within the industry.
The directors of the various copies of the “Vogue” magazine, announced that this action is framed as a program designed to ensure that models are an example for many women. They also aim to educate and encourage women to take care of themselves. The main goal, they said, is trying to solve problems related to poor health in the industry. For Health Initiative’s June issues launched globally, it will feature editorial content related to the topic, as well as six-point agreement between the 19 responsible for it.
Among these points are models under 16 or models who seem to suffer eating disorders. The people behind wants to believe and promote a healthy body image. Another aspect mentioned is to help structure programs, in which the models need to be more mature, and advise and guide the younger models to give more priority to their education. This has been assumed by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) in American Health Initiative.
Similarly, they seek to encourage producers to create between racks, better working conditions, healthy food choices and respect for privacy. They also seek to encourage designers to consider the consequences of creating clothing sizes that are too small, which limits the percentage of women who may be photographed wearing their designs, and encourages extremely thin models.
In this regard, Jonathan Newhouse, chairman of Conde Nast International said, “Vogue believes that good health is beauty. The editors of this magazine around the world want to reflect the commitment to the health of the models appearing in their pages as well as the welfare of their readers.”
