    French fashion industry signs anti-anorexia charter

    The French fashion industry has signed a charter to promote healthy body images https://www.goldengooseshoesit.com/ among ultra-skinny models in magazine ads and on the catwalks of Paris - the world's fashion capital.

    After more than a year of talks, officials from fashion houses, advertising firms and media outlets joined Health Minister Roselyne Bachelot to ink the voluntary charter, joining a worldwide drive to combat anorexia.

    The charter outlines a series of guidelines but falls short of imposing restrictions, as is the case in Spain which has set a minimum body mass index of 18 for catwalk models. This translates to a minimum weight of 56 kilograms for a height of 175 centimetres.

    French fashion supremos committed to a series of "positive actions" to promote healthy body images, mostly through awareness-raising and information sharing.

    Signatories pledged to refrain from using "images of people, in particular youth, that could contribute to promoting a model of extreme thinness."

    The measures were drafted by a working group set up in January 2007 by the Health Ministry to respond to recent alarm over the deaths of models and an outcry over bare-bone physiques being held up as the epitome of beauty.

    In November 2006, Ana Carolina Reston died at the age of 21, weighing in at less than 40 kilograms for her tall 170 centimetre frame. Uruguayan model Luisel Ramos died of heart failure in August that same year.

    Italian photographer Oliviero Toscani caused a stir last year with a series of anti-anorexia ads featuring Frenchwoman Isabelle Caro, who Golden Goose Sale weighs just 32 kilograms for a height of 165 centimetres.
