The Fashion Debates: Model Health

Regular readers of SEEN will know that we are huge fans of Olivia Pinnock’s bi-monthly Fashion Debates, which discuss issues around ethics and sustainability in the Fashion Business but also – crucially – encourage consumers to come up with solutions and change the way in which we are sold the fashion that we love.

Taking place during London Fashion week at The Grooming Room – a space for fashion and the press to interact in a relaxed way – the Debate will centre on whether the UK needs to introduce a law to protect the health of models, inspired by model Rosie Nelson who has launched a petition calling for just that. France and California already has legislation in place to prevent models from being pressured to slim down to dangerous levels. The panel will discuss the implications of such a move on the fashion industry and on public perception of body image. The Debate is open to everyone, is easily accessible from the catwalk events taking place nearby, and will be followed by free cocktails.
