Is 16 too young to be a model?
According to Women’s Wear Daily, one of the recommendations from the forthcoming UK-based Model Health Inquiry report is to ban models who are under 16 from walking in shows at London Fashion Week in September.
The proposed regulations follow moves made by Madrid Fashion Week, where models with a body mass index of less than 18 were banned from the catwalks last September.
The Milan Chamber of Commerce in December also introduced licenses to verify all models’ age and health.
Do you think male and females aged under 16 are too young to model in catwalk shows?
