Wasn't sure to put this here or in Post-its. But

Fashion houses attacked over models

The UK editor of Vogue is speaking out about designers making clothes too small for their models. It was interesting... my Mum spotted it in the Sunday paper

It's good someones speaking out. It's so sad models are dying because they need to be thin to keep a career. This kind of industry kills people and it's horrible.

It's good that someone is speaking out, yes. But I am bothered by the fact that Shulman is using eating disorders as means for financial gain. Keep in mind that she's not calling out advertisers who often use the same size models, only fashion designers. For more on this, read here.
