The fash­ion in­dus­try is di­gest­ing the pos­si­ble im­pact of a ban on size-zero and un­der-age mod­els an­nounced by the two big­gest lux­ury con­glom­er­ates, LVMH and Ker­ing, last month. The two group’s new char­ter takes ef­fect with the spring/sum­mer 2018 sea­son and af­fects top brands such as Louis Vuit­ton, Gucci, Saint Lau­rent and Chris­tian Dior.

“Re­spect­ing the dig­nity of all women has al­ways been both a per­sonal com­mit­ment for me and a pri­or­ity,” said Fran­cois-Henri Pin­ault, Chair­man and CEO of Ker­ing, of the ban. “We hope to in­spire the en­tire in­dus­try to fol­low suit, thus mak­ing a real dif­fer­ence in the work­ings of fash­ion mod­els in­dus­try-wide.”

An­toine Ar­nault, a mem­ber of the LVMH Board of Directors, de­clared his com­pany’s com­mit­ment to their char­ter: “The well-be­ing of mod­els is of great im­por­tance to us. As the leader in the lux­ury sec­tor, we be­lieve it is our role to be at the fore­front of this ini­tia­tive. We have the re­spon­si­bil­ity of build­ing new stan­dards for fash­ion and we hope to be fol­lowed by other play­ers in our sec­tors.”
