New York Fasion Week responds responsibly to use of thin models

Filed under: Places To Go, That's Entertainment

The New York Fashion Week, scheduled to begin this Friday, has a made a few changes to its line up. The use of super skinny models is out this year. This issue has been red hot this year, making headlines again and again.

Although a rare few of us ever make it to these shows, the images are broadcast across the Internet and the styles trickle down to the major stores where most of us can afford to shop. As a result, these shows actually do have an impact on our daughters. And as a mother of a fashion hungry 'tween, I am more than excited to hear that the super skinny models are being sent elsewhere. Maybe they are being ordered to eat a balanced meal so that they can come back to runway. What do you think? Good move for the fashion industry?
