Skinny out the door
A UK fashion brand has agreed to stop using unrealistically tall and skinny mannequins after a social media complaint went viral. Laura Berry posted a photograph of a mannequin in a Topshop outlet in Bristol, slamming the “ridiculous” shape, and asked Topshop to consider the “impression you have on women and young girls”. Her post attracted more than 3000 likes and hundreds of comments. Topshop said the model was based on a size 10, but admitted it had been tailored for effect and agreed not to order it again.
