Has fashion got its house in order?

fashioninquiryleaflet.jpg beat inquiry - Saturday 6th October 2007
www.b-eat.co.uk

We want to hear your views, opinions and recieve any evidence you have on this important topic.

The British fashion council's inquiry has looked into the health of models, and it recommendations have now been published.

We want to know what people think about the influence that the fashion industry has on society as a whole.

We know that fashion doesn't directly cause eating disorders. At its best, fashion is fun and it's creative...but something's got to change.

AnyBody member Elise Slater will be speaking at the event.

We have 100 tickets available but if you are unable to attend we would still like to hear from you.

Please e-mail your views, opinions and evidence to inquiry@b-eat.co.uk

I play on Second Life.
My character is, (amongst others), an attractive young woman and, as I don't like to be encumbered with clothes, she is usually unclothed, by default unclothed (nb. not 'naked').
It's not surprising that a lot of figures on the site are vigorously hostile to this appearance, especially as most of the people on Second Life are from north America and western Europe. It's also noticeable that many of the people on Second Life show the same fastidious wish to look as normal as in real life, and that most of those who attack me are dressed as Barbie dolls.

Just as the trend is to place a 12 year old girls in a fashion magazines to "catch the eye", the same is true with emaciated models..it makes people look at the ad.
PERSONALLY, I don't want to look like I need to go to a hospital to be treated with tubes down my nose for a low BMI.
