A Bigger Model

In 2006, Italy's fashion bosses manifested that they would crack down on the use of ultra-thin models on the catwalk.  Only a year earlier, Spain barred models below a certain weight from a Madrid fashion show.  Flaminia Spadone, aid to the minister of the Italian National Fashion Chamber, said "the ministry would really like to follow the Spanish example and impose a limit on the body mass index, which takes into account the model's heigh versus weight.

Despite the initial push to limit the use of ultra-thin models, very little change has yet to take place.  Designers are still claiming that their clothing looks better on slimmer women.
