As London Fashion Week draws to a close, the debate continues about whether models are too thin. A parliamentary group is taking a look at whether the law needs to restrict the use of “ultra-thin” women.
Italy, Israel and Spain have all passed bills banning the use of ultra-thin fashion models, with France the latest to adopt a new law.
In Britain, a petition has been launched to that end by model Rosie Nelson.
She told BBC Newsnight that she would like a law enforced where models had to undertake health checks.
