The limits at this show are unfair for models who are naturally scrawny, but setting an example that you CAN be too thin may help young women who develop anorexia trying to make their bodies look like Nicole Richie’s.
Leonor Perez Pita is the director of Madrid’s fashion week and said she hopes she starts a trend.
“I would be very pleased if this sets a precedent and that other fashion shows in the world follow in our footsteps,” she said.
She’s been criticized, with observers saying it is just PR, but she denies this.
“The Pasarela Cibeles does not need publicity, it is quite well known enough already,” Pita said, denying the move was just a publicity stunt.
