PostSubject: Fashion industry signs anti-anorexia agreement   Wed Apr 09, 2008 3:09 pm

THE French fashion industry today signed a charter to promote healthy body images among ultra-skinny models in magazine ads and on the catwalks of Paris, the world's fashion capital.

After more than a year of talks, officials from fashion houses, advertising firms and media outlets joined Health Minister Roselyne Bachelot to ink the voluntary charter, joining a worldwide drive to combat anorexia.

The charter outlines a series of guidelines but falls short of imposing restrictions, as is the case in Spain which has set a minimum body mass index of 18 for catwalk models. This translates to a minimum weight of 56kg for a height of 1.75m.

French fashion supremos committed to a series of "positive actions'' to promote healthy body images, mostly through awareness-raising and information sharing.

Signatories pledged to refrain from using "images of people, in particular youth, that could contribute to promoting a model of extreme thinness".

The measures were drafted by a working group set up in January 2007 by the health ministry to respond to recent alarm over the deaths of models, and an outcry over bare-bone physiques being held up as the epitome of beauty.
