    MILAN (Reuters) – The Italian fashion capital Milan has formally barred ultra-skinny and under-age models ahead of its February catwalk shows, as the fashion world comes under pressure to promote a healthier image.

    The agreement signed on Monday between the city and its powerful fashion industry bans models under 16 and those with a body mass index of less than 18.5 from Milan’s shows.

    The accord also includes courses on healthy eating and exercise and calls for a variety of clothing sizes in shows.[/q]
