Government Banning Skinny Models From Catwalks & Magazines

Looking like a skeleton is unattractive, unrealistic and unhealthy. To put a halt to the glamorisation of unhealthy thin women, the government will be introducing a massive overhaul to the Australian fashion industry, where SKINNY models will be banished from catwalks and magazines. After a 2 year consultation process, the new industry code was exclusively revealed to the “Sunday Times”. The new code will include the following:

 

* Not running advertisements for rapid weight loss, cosmetic surgery, excessive exercise or other commercials that may promote a negative body image.

* Only using models aged 16 or older to model adult clothes, both on catwalks and in print.

* Refraining from using models who are very thin or male models who are excessively muscular.

* Disclosing when images have been retouched and air-brushed and refraining from enhancing photographs in a way that changes a person’s body shape and features

* Stocking clothing in a wide variety of sizes in shops to reflect the demand from customers.

* Using a broad range of body shapes, sizes and ethnicities in editorial and advertising.
