the italian minister for the politic about youths, giovanna melandri, has taken action against the catwalk displaying models too thin.
she asked to the fashion companies to collaborate and to not have anorexic models on the catwalk.
she pointed out that she doesn't want to force anybody right now but only asked for cooperation.
any further action could be taken after the next fashion shows in february.

Bravo for Italy. Just feature average-size models...no more sickly, heroin-chic models.

Thanks for keeping tabs on this :-).

ck, sometimes we seem to be an avant garde country!!
spain is taking the lead in this story. its government has passed a new law about this issue: models with a IMC lower than 18 are not accepted on the catwalk.
