It looks like Germany is now joining on the "no anorexic model" campaign, having signed a charter requiring models to be 16 years of age and have at least a BMI of 18.5. It joins other countries like Britain, France, the US, Italy, and Spain who banned ultra-thin models from runway shows back in September 2006.
I really like this line from Frank Hartmann, the director of the fashion trade fair organizer Igedo. He called on the industry to show "that dying of hunger is not part of the job." This was especially referenced by the cases of Brazilian model Ana Carolina Reston and Uruguayan sisters Eliana and Luisel Ramos, all of whom died from complications of eating disorders while modeling.
