As Milan celebrates fashion week, civilians and sartorialist alike have been awestruck by an anti-anorexia advert. While some people laud the billboard, French fashionista Didier Grumbach finds it “scandalous”:
I’m pleased this is not happening in France. I find this absolutely scandalous.
Winning notoriety through people’s illness is painful. What we’re seeing here is sensationalism by a label, to the detriment of an extremely serious social problem. This young girl is not a model. This is low behavior. It is degrading.
Wait, doesn’t the fashion industry make billions on perpetuating stick thin ideals? Talk about low behavior.
