Re: ANOTHER model starves to death
I've been beside myself with rage every since I heard about this. The inaction on the part of the fashion industry IS criminal - or should be, since it's been well established that none of fashion's power elites will do anything meaningful to stop the deaths.
Do these people live in a vacuum? Aren't they aware how many young women are dying of anorexia - now even models within the fashion industry, let alone the hundreds of thousands of women who are influenced by it?
That's a rhetorical question. Of course they're aware. They just don't care, and probably sneer about it.
The photographer mentioned in the article is leading a noble crusade, but it sounds like he's alone. Laws urgently need to be passed in the U.S. to compel this industry to stop destroying (and ending) young women's lives.
