Should fashion models have minimum BMI?

Fashion models should be benched if they are dangerously thin, and U.S. regulators should make sure this happens. So says a provocative editorial published Monday in the American Journal of Public Health. The authors, both experts on eating disorders affiliated with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, argue that fashion models are just as deserving of protection as coal miners and garment factory workers. Instead of being vulnerable to black lung or repetitive stress injuries, models are at risk of eating... [Lire la suite]

Freeze Fashion

In February 2012 fashion designer Manish Malhotra made a statement when one of his male models turned up on a Delhi ramp wearing pheran with tilla embroidery. He was inspired by Kashmiri colours while shooting for Rockstar in the Valley. Nobody knows if any of his clients turned up for buying pheran. In valley, however, the statement pushed pheran to get trendy, and innovative. It is 8:30 am and a group of girls are giggling while coming out of their tuition centre in Parrypora, a locality fast emerging as an address for fashion... [Lire la suite]

Fashion made from fur of animal casualties gets brush-off from animal-rights groups, fur trade

Pamela Paquin's source for fashion may make you shriek. She creates neck muffs, leg warmers, hats, handbags and more from roadkill, or “accidental fur” as she prefers to call it. As owner of Petite Mort Fur, a company set up two years ago in the northeastern United States, she said she’s offering the fur industry an alternative to wild fur trapping and large-scale fur farms. “All this fur is being thrown away,” Paquin said. “If we can pick that up, we never have to kill another fur-bearing animal again.” Statements like that,...

Boston company turns roadkill into fashion

Pamela Paquin's source for fashion is either "tres chic" or will make you shriek. She creates neck muffs, leg warmers, hats, purses and more from roadkill, or "accidental fur," as she prefers to call it. As owner of Petite Mort Furs, a 2-year-old Boston-area company, she said she's offering the fur industry an alternative to wild fur trapping and large-scale fur farms. "All this fur is being thrown away," Paquin said. "If we can pick that up, we never have to kill another fur-bearing animal again." Keith Kaplan, head of the Fur... [Lire la suite]

The 'Kate Middleton effect' on synagogue fashion

The so-called “Kate Middleton effect”—by which anything the Duchess of Cambridge wears becomes an instant best-seller—seems to know no bounds. She has graced the covers of countless magazines; entire blogs are devoted to what she wears. And, as it happens, the duchess is the perfect style icon for observant Jewish women. “She’s modest, demure and modern,” says Adi Heyman, founder of the fashion blog Fabologie. So it’s perhaps no surprise that one of Middleton’s signature style pieces—the fascinator—has caught on as a head covering... [Lire la suite]

Jonathan Saunders’s Fashion Brand Closes, What’s Next for the Designer

London has been absorbing the news that, after more than 10 years, there will be a hole in February’s Fashion Week: Jonathan Saunders is calling it a day. This year, he acquired a backer, Eiesha Bharti Pasricha, but evidently, despite the best efforts of both parties, the arrangement did not come in time to put his label on an even keel. The decision to cease trading was “amicable,” Saunders said in an email. “My investor has been such a good partner. I just want to try new things and approach my work in a different way.” Saunders’s... [Lire la suite]

Meet the women at the forefront of Winnipeg's fashion scene

  The Instagram following of one Winnipeg fashion stylist is 65,000 and counting, and a local clothing designer is striving to represent as many individuals as possible in her collection.   Both young women are at the forefront of fashion in the city, yet their approach to style could not be more different.   Bella McFadden, 20, is known online — and around the world — as Internetgirl, a name she came up with when she was 17.   Her followers — many of them eager to buy McFadden's clothing — are based in...

Ban underfed and underage models in fashion, MPs urged

Models have urged MPs to consider tougher rules for the fashion industry, describing catwalks full of models with advanced eating disorders, some surviving solely on popcorn. Rosie Nelson, whose Change.org petition calling for new laws for health standards in the fashion industry has attracted more than 110,000 signatures, told the all-party parliamentary group on body image that she had constantly been urged to lose weight, with one agency saying she needed to be “down to the bone”. “Friends at shows saw models who fainted and had...
