26 Italy moves to stop ultra-skinny models ROME (Reuters) - Italy's government and its fashion chiefs are working on a manifesto to crack down on the use of ultra-thin teenagers on the catwalk, as pressure grows on the fashion world to promote healthier looks. After Spain barred models below a certain weight from a Madrid fashion show in September, industry leaders in Argentina and now Brazil have joined a campaign to ensure models are over 16 years old and are not excessively thin. Powerful Milan fashion houses first resisted calls to copy the Spanish regulations, with Italian National Fashion Chamber head Mario Boselli saying in September that only "maybe one girl in a hundred" could be defined as too skinny. But after Boselli, whose lobby represents big names like Armani, Versace and Prada, met Italian Youth Minister Giovanna Melandri this week, he agreed to work with the ministry on a self regulatory code of good practice.

27 Italy moves to stop ultra-skinny models "Italy has an important strategic role in world fashion so we have to send a strong signal," said Flaminia Spadone, an aide to the minister. The manifesto will be launched before the Milan women's fashion week in February, a major event in the catwalk calendar. "We'd like fashion houses, modeling agencies, photographers and everyone working in the fashion world to sign the charter," she said. "It would be voluntary but professional bodies could decide to impose sanctions on people who don't sign, preventing them from taking part in fashion shows." Boselli told Reuters the charter might require women to undergo medical checks for body weight, though it would also take into account factors like genetic influences on weight.

28 Italy moves to stop ultra-skinny models ULTRA-SLIM LOOK The use of underweight models promoting the ultra-slim look has held sway in much of world fashion since the 1990s, and was epitomized by British supermodel Kate Moss. But it has come into sharp critical focus since the death of Brazilian model Ana Carolina Resto last month from complications derived from the slimming disease anorexia. There are calls for a return to the slim but more curvaceous models of the 1980s, like and Claudia Schiffer. "We won't have a specific limit on body mass index as they do in Spain," said Boselli. But Spadone said the ministry would ideally like to follow the Spanish example and impose a limit on the body mass index, which takes into account the model's height versus weight. She said models who came under 18.5 on the index -- the World Health Organisation's definition of underweight -- should be banned from working for the sake of their own health. "In the Third World, if someone has an index of less than 18.5, they send in humanitarian aide," she said.

30 MILAN (Reuters) - The Italian fashion capital Milan has formally barred ultra-skinny and under-age models ahead of its February catwalk shows, as the fashion world comes under pressure to promote a healthier image. The agreement signed on Monday between the city and its powerful fashion industry bans models under 16 and those with a body mass index of less than 18.5 from Milan's shows. The accord also includes courses on healthy eating and exercise and calls for a variety of clothing sizes in shows. "The agreement is the result of a common effort... to share and to communicate to our young people the importance of positive models of living," Milan mayor Letizia Moratti said in a statement. Milan bans ultra-skinny models from catwalk Tue Dec 19, :49am ET

31 Body mass index is the ratio of weight to the square of height -- so that a 1.73 m (5 foot 8 inch) model who weighed less than 55.4 kg (122 lb) would be barred. The accord is broadly in line with a manifesto issued by the national government and Italy's fashion chiefs on Saturday, and due to be signed this week. Spain barred models below a certain weight from Madrid's shows in September. This month Brazil launched a campaign to ban under-age, underweight models from shows in response to the death of a Brazilian model from complications due to anorexia. Milan's fashion houses at first resisted calls to follow the Spanish example. Mario Boselli, the head of Italy's National Fashion Chamber, said in September that only "maybe one girl in a hundred" of the models on show could be defined as too skinny. But Boselli, whose lobby group represents such big names as Armani, Versace and Prada, agreed to work with the government on a self-regulatory code of good practice.
