Create a law to protect models from getting 'dangerously' skinny - UK based model starts petition

Rosie Nelson, a UK based has started a petition to encourage the government and relevant bodies to Create a law to protect models from getting 'dangerously' skinny and protect vulnerable young girls and boys in the industry.

According to her, 'I’m a 23 year old model and a size 8 to 10. When I walked into one of the UK’s biggest model agencies last year they told me I ticked all the boxes except one. I needed to lose weight. So I did. Four months later I lost nearly a stone, 2 inches off my hips. When I returned to the same agency they told me to lose more weight, they wanted me "down to the bone".

She continues to say, 'The agencies managing and recruiting models have a responsibility to the wellbeing of girls on the catwalk at fashion week, and in the industry as a whole'.
