When are we going to smell the coffee?

It looks like more curves are hitting the catwalk around the world. Did you know that currently the Spaniards require that all models on the catwalk during this week of fashion need to have a BMI of more than 18, this measure was set up to prevent drastically underweight models from hitting the runways. Moreover it can also be said that such a measure was triggered following the tragic death of Luisel Ramos last month, who suffered a heart attack after stepping off the catwalk. Luisel had merely been living on fluids.

Although this measure was set up in Spain, major fashion capital such as Paris, would never dream of putting this into action. It’s shocking to think that being skinny and saving on fabrics is more important in some places, than it is to promote a healthy lifestyle and a healthy images to young girls. More on this issue and also an interview with plus size model Charlotte Coyle can be found in an article publised this week in The Telegraph.
