    Models should be a picture of health, says New York fashion body
    After fashion powerhouse Milan banned wafer-thin and underage models from walking the ramp in its fashion shows, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), which organizes fashion events in New York, issued guidelines to promote healthier models within the industry.
     
    It urged underweight models to seek medical intervention for any eating disorders they might be suffering from and asked them models to maintain healthier lifestyle amid criticism that stick-thin models were sending out wrong signals to youngsters, who emulated them and ended up with eating disorders. The body, however, will not ban thin models from doing the catwalk to avoid ‘policing’.
