Anorexia, Emaciation, Fashion and Procrastination

A “code of ethics” to fight anorexia within the fashion world was signed on Friday between the Italian government, the Federation of Italian fashion and the association Alta Moda, which brings together Italian designers presenting their collections in Rome and Milan . The code “is committed to protecting the health of models participating in the fashion shows, promotes a healthy lifestyle,” said the Health Minister Livia Turco during a press conference. His French counterpart Xavier Bertrand announced Thursday have entrusted the child psychiatrist Marcel Rufo and sociologist Jean-Pierre Poulain the direction of an expert group that will consider the appearance of the body in advertising and fashion…

But Italy is the only one to put words to things and propose real constraints. The contract signed between the Italian leaders and the Federation of fashion parades prohibits girls under 16 years and models whose body mass index less than 18 (for example corresponding to a girl measuring 1 72 m and weighing 53 kilos), a threshold deemed unsafe by medicine.

It is time that the company ceases to have a schizophrenic attitude about it … How can we give as “women” model ever thinner, more transparent (advertising, fashion shows, etc…) and really fight anorexia? How can scroll girls 14 years and believe that their body is not yet formed the ideal female body? How can we put on the catwalk girls with eating disorders are flagrant and erect fashion icon… And how can we, having legitimized it by advertising campaigns and dissemination of shows on all TV channels, how can we make it clear to young girls that beauty is not it, that they are not forced to starve themselves to become someone…

How can anorexia proved after several Hollywood starlets, after the death of Brazilian model anorexic Ana Carolina Reston, how can we remain evasive on the issue: “We all agree that this is not a regulatory problem but information.” If there are no real rules, the problem will remain.
