Supermodels era is long gone. The good old times when Cindy, Christy, Linda, Naomi, Tatjana, rocked the runways. Now it’s a fashion industry spawning hundred of new faces per season.
Good or bad it’s for those who have the time to judge. Since we live at light speed, we only have a moment to see the fresh faces and pass on to the next show.
The British Fashion Council, however, took things to the next level, stating via its chairman, Harold Tillman: “These are women that younger models admire. We should get these original supermodels on board and get them more involved. Many girls are looking after themselves but there is unfortunately a minority that isn’t. We need the rest of Europe and the rest of the world on board.”
Without starting a rhetorical debate on model’s health (or related topics) I wonder why in the world we complain so much and don’t do something about education? It’s clearly there that all starts. Not on the runway, not with every passing fashion season. Girls don’t need a commission over their heads, or the public opinion putting the finger on them. They need good education.
Role models that run their life just like every other human being does and make mistakes like every one of us don’t make much of an education (or maybe it’s each her specialty – like Naomi is in abusive conduct).
What do you think? Is the British Fashion Council’s initiative to board the world on a hunting party against all evil on the runway bliss from heaven? Or it’s just another move to paint the surface and keep the roots rotten?
