Dior And Gucci Are Banning Underweight Models At Catwalk Shows

By Mark Pygas

LVMH and Kering, two of the biggest fashion firms in the world, behind the likes of Christian Dior and Gucci, have promised to stop hiring underweight models for their catwalk shows amid criticism that the industry encourages eating disorders among models

In a statement on their website, LVMH say that the two firms will now only hire female models that are a US size two or larger, and male models that are a US size 32 or larger. 

Additionally, all of the brands owned by the two firms will now work solely with models able to present a valid medical certificate, attesting that the model is in good health, and obtained less than six months before the shoot or fashion show.
