Dispose with fashion (article)
Here's a damning new article about the fashion industry, one which confirms many of the worst opinions the public holds about it:
One passage sums it up:
The article confirms that things are worse than ever in this toxic industry.
And the sad thing is, the trend that the article discusses - of finding young models with ingenue qualities - could perfectly well be served by featuring young plus-size models. There are countless gorgeous young full-figured teens that could be scouted, instead of skeletal teens. At this site, we've all seen many young plus-size models create vulnerable, delicate looks. There's no reason whatsoever for fashion to be exploiting anorexic girls and spreading eating-disorers among the general populace.
But the article dares to come out and identify the source of the problem in a way that I've seldom seen in the mainstream press:
This thought is echoed by one of the reader's comments:
Exactly. Think about the kinds of individuals who tyrannize over taste in this manner. Why, WHY does society allow them to wield so much influence, to ruin so many young lives?
In the real world, one would never allow such individuals to exert control over one's life choices. So why have they been allowed to create a monopoly in which they can effectively ban femininity, ban the natural womanly figure, and impose their own warped taste as a regulation?
When will society overthrow this tyranny of the fringes?
Re: Dispose with fashion (article)
That is a devastating article, and another powerful rebuke of the fashion industry. It can only be a matter of time before women finally wake up and realize that they have been unwittingly allowing themselves to be tortured by the fashion industry, by a small group of fringe individuals with grotesque tastes who do nothing but cause widesperad misery, and who have been allowed to create a self-serving monopoly on the backs of the very women whom they victimize.
A small comment in the following article called "Let's Bring Back..." sees the truth behind fashions smoke and mirrors:
The pertinent point:
I see indications of growing social frustration such as this all the time, but the critiques need to be translated into action - into legislation, banning from fashion shows and magazine those designers who persist in using underweight models.
