A Weighty Issue

Editor of British Vogue Alexandra Shulman has joined the ongoing media debate about superskinny models with a harshly-worded letter to the biggest names in the fashion industry, The Times reported today. The newspaper quotes Shulman on the current phenomenon of “jutting bones and no breasts or hips”, with models handed the msot “miniscule” of sample sizes to wear for shoots. Shulman claims that the wares modelled for high-fashion shoots have become “substantially smaller”, and yet the supercharged pace of the fashion industry means that turning down the samples equals missing major trends and consequently losing audiences.
