Bones Of Contention (2007): Can the fashion industry amend the body-image crises many young women suffer, or is beauty truly a matter of life and death on the catwalks?

The fashion industry claims it is being unfairly pillaged for the ‘size 0’ phenomenon. But self regulation has done little to weed out emaciated models. “They have to understand that being thin is our job”, states one size 0 model. But following the death of anorexic model, Ana Carolina Reston, designers are coming under pressure not to use skinny models. Spain banned ultra-thin models from Madrid Fashion Week after complaints they encouraged anorexia. “We didn’t want teenagers to think excessive slimness is a model of beauty”, explains organizer Cuca Solana. But other fashion capitals refuse to follow Spain’s lead. “The whole size 0 thing has come from Hollywood not the catwalks”, complains Hilary Riva, Chief Executive of London Fashion Week. “It’s too simplistic to blame fashion.” SBS Australia - Ref.3432 Journeyman Pictures is your independent source for the world's most powerful films, exploring the burning issues of today.

If clothes only look good on skinny girls, there is something wrong with the clothes.

Both myself and my Daughter have chosen not to purchase clothes that are modelled by a ultra skinny model because we are not able to get an idea of what the clothes will look like.... I am a size 16 , my Daughter is a 12

Girls, look at those models in the video. Even if they don't eat much, they still have a fat ass. So eat up and do exercise regularly. There's only one Kate Moss and only one Gisele Bundchen on the mother Earth.

Models with a thighgap from here to tokio size zero xxx or xx, heroinechicklook went a trend in the beginning of the nineties. I think that it is their natural bodystructure. Some are natural lean. .It"s not my taste. Some think that it can trigger to eatingdisorders. .
Tity Huisman (4 months ago)
Life can be hard, they can make and break you. You can go by the flow or go. You can go, or go on diet to get very skinny. Some photo"s are shocking. Some modelagencys like this are perverted and rotten. This is not healthy animore. Kills youth who are in the blossom of their life. The industry is very hard and it is all about money, and it is not going for your wellbeing and health. It causes much of stress. When you are not naturally lean you can starve to get lean and when you don"t do this you can get fired. It should be forbidden and it is criminal and can be a trigger to starviation. I hope cury models will be a new trend for a better and healthier influence. This can trigger to anorexia. Pushes influenceble young people over the line. Cruel like nero size zero. At the cost of young life. Life is nothing worth in the modelindusty and that makes it hard.

Designers never will put "Healthy" body looking on the Run Way! They don't give a Shit if the models die, there is a line up of young starving new models waiting for their chance to succeed/or die.

I love looking skinny. No one needs all that extra weight. The U.S. has too many crappy fast food joints that are killing people. A U.S. obesity survey done in 2008 found 32.2% of men were obese and 35.5% of women were obese. I don't know which is worse starving to death or dropping dead from a stroke.

You can forget about being a real high fashion model with a BMI over 18. It's just not gonna fly with high end designers. Being 5'9 or 5'10 and having maximum 60 cm around your waist won't make a BMI of 18.
Cristina .Filipe (8 months ago)
It's true, me my cousin we were thin at 14 15 even 16 I started to gain more weight around 18 years old my cousin still to this day is thin after two kids so Is not right at all they should have as close as possible to normal women and men and age should 18 years old, NEVER before thatThe people that buy the clothing are women not girlsSo please I hope this craziness this madness shifty people who chose these GIRLS , they are nothing more than girls which a lot like me only had they re period at 14 or 15 years oldHow can you people have kids modeling grown women cloths , and another thing most women who buy are at least 30 years old and older because they got to a point at their life's where they finally can afford them , the younger ones who buy it's usually the parents who are rich etc.. But only after college or school and after working a few years only then a woman is more settled maybe an apartment a husband so both share the bills and so then the ladies and the gentleman are able to afford more but never almost never before that.....One knows this they think us grown women fall for this shit hell noOnly ones to suffer from this to have low self esteem are of course girls and boys adolescents and why? They re life is still a dreamy one they know nothing of the real world most don't so what they do?Start these horrible diets which is more self destruction and are constantly asking mom and dad to buy them these expensive clothing of course , as soon as one wakes up turns tv on computer on, cellular son they are bombarded with THESE anorexic disturbing looking models The people who hire them , maybe it's the designers are the ones who want these anorexic people they are the ones to blameIf their kids were close to dying with an ED I'm sure they would stop but because their back yard is multi million industry , it's great for millions of little girls as young as 6 or 8 to start wanting to lose weight to look like these models who sometimes die along the way , I hear of one or two every single YEARIn my time we looked up to Cindy Crawford or Naomi Campbell or Tyra banks or others who looked more like these gymnasts with some curves but today???? Very very very dangerous you stupid idiots who own the fashion industry want the models to look like a they are living in a starving concentration camp it's just horrific they look like they re about to faint on the run wayMen too I see a few men who are taking dieting and exercise waaaaaaayyyyy too far!!!!!It's p to us to say NO too if we say no they have no customersI love the ones they cal plus size models to me they are normal NOT super size AT ALL they are beautiful extremely healthy looking I mean I see some who don't even need make up because they have a natural glow and rosy cheeks and lips they are the natural looking womanI now only buy from them from designers who chose plus size models and my kids agree too they see how beautiful they are they love it!!!

Skinny or fat... That is the option! I don't feel anything for them, that are more than likely hooked on heavy drugs.

God, I wish I had the willpower to get stick thin like that. Feels like Ive been chasing that ideal since I was 10.
Christine Santoro (10 months ago)
I love how they want to blame America when we obviously have an overweight problem lol I don’t look at actresses or ppl in Hollywood and say they are too thin. I’m a nurse and see 40+ BMI’s almost everyday. The designers like how clothes look on emaciated girls and most of the high end designers are from Europe. So don’t try and blame the “western world”.
Gontainer (10 months ago)
As models we are hangers, but 99% people are not hangars buying the product seeing the hangers? So looking at the clothes on hangers buying them and later at home discovers that these clothes are totally different on your body because you are not the hanger it is cultivating anger towards this deception?

Noo.. when I modelled in Milan I did not get asked what my BMI was once. A lot of my roommates had their pocket money taken away if their measurements were too big.

Paula Johnson (1 year ago)
Of course the industry is to blame. Designers' catwalk samples models wear are a scrimpy French Size 2 at most. Most of the big-name designers are gay men and they're obsessed with skinny teenage boys. Their clothing is made for stick figures, not shapely women.

Okay so western culture is to blame for anorexia and obesity, I hope they make up their minds, supersize vs superskinny in the UK blames their obesity problem on the US and this show says their anorexia problem is also due to the US....pick one smh

Designers don't want fat models.
Dark (5 months ago)
ABIMA It isn't supposed to be realistic. It's supposed to be lean, tall, and elegant to show off the clothes. Also, Designers cannot customize their clothing for various body types, so there must be a universal shape for models.

Yeah, I am an American size 4 and I am considered too fat for modeling. It really a farce to say the fashion industry doesn't perpetuate the ultra skinny model preferences, but its not the only reason. Western society embraces these norms and it is seen as 'just the way it is.' The fact that modeling has ANYONE dying for their career says there is a problem. One does not hear about other professions having these types of problems.

Another problem is price. Bigger people need more fabric, it can be expensive. A human body that is larger needs twice as much moisturizer as a slim one. Everything costs more. And yes, I have an eating disorder.

Could that Aussie designer be anymore fuckin stupid.. Good for Spain for taking a stance and hopefully changing the movement in the fashion industry. Yes people come in all shapes and sizes and it's resfreshing to see that in the fashion industry instead of being shamed for being to "fat" and just like that young girl said the majority of the high end lables are def to blame who refuse to make bigger sizes and constantly turn away modles for being bigger than a size 0. Which is sad cause they could truely make a difference for the right reasons but chose not to truely address the real situation. That other designer was a strong example by telling her rep to advise the reporter not to ask these questions. I myself was appalled working in the fashion industry for many different reasons.. it's a luv hate relationship

The problem isn't skinny people, the problem is that the people in charge allow anorexic girls to work, encourage it, and don't accept a range of healthy sizes. There needs to be a range of bodies, not a certain type of body banned.

Leelia Leismann (1 year ago)
define fat ... There is a difference of being anorexic and healthy weight and fat . If you are in a range of normal body weight you are not fat . You are normal that is what they are trying to accomplish . Models should be in a healthy body mass index range-not overweight nor anorexic looking ,but normal .

Amanda Cardoso (2 years ago)
Wtf is that designer saying at the end? Well, yeah A lot of African countries are dealing with hunger and we should be worried about it, and try to help and all, but it doesn't mean that we should just let these young girls deal with anorexia and another eating disorders because of this industry's standarts. So the designers should stop and take responsibility for their actions and what kind of image they're promoting, and not just diverse the attention to Hunger in Africa.
