The CFDA, along with the Tharanco Group and Condé Nast Publications, plans to hold an event themed "The Beauty of Health: How the fashion industry can make a difference." After the controversy on overly-thin models, the CFDA intends to show its continued commitment to keeping only healthy girls on the runway.
Since the first health symposium in February 2007, the CFDA has been
sending letters to designers, show agents and stylists to remind them
of its efforts and the recommended guidelines and principles of beauty
and health. Not only do the CFDA’s guidelines discourage the use of overly thin models, they also aim to not use models under the age of 16 without parental guidance, which is seemingly more important for the next generation of supermodels.
CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors and model Coco Rocha
will address the crowd at the Milk Studios penthouse on how the
initiative has evolved, its importance and, in the case of Rocha, her
own personal experiences as a model. Expected attendees at the event include Donna Karan, Francisco Costa,
Nicole Miller, Tory Burch, Doo-Ri Chung, Amanda Brooks, and Michael
Vollbracht. We certainly applaud the effort!
