Fashion Week is not only the appreciation of creativity, craft and culture of its respective city, but a time of high importance to the canvases this art form is manifested on. With designer demands bursting at the seams, model’s health is often brushed under the catwalk.
On Sunday the 18th September, bi-monthly cultural platform The Fashion Debates will move from its Condé Nast College home to partner with The Grooming Room for a London Fashion Week special. ‘Should The UK Introduce a Model-Health Law?’ is an afternoon of debate, cocktails and ethical education just a stone’s throw away from the heart of LFW, the British Fashion Council show space.
Joining the action will be model, campaigner and advocate for the #NoSizeFitsAll campaign, Rosie Nelson, alongside Fashion Writer Amy E Williams (YOU Magazine, Hello! Fashion Monthly), Head Scout and Head of Development at Leni’s Models Laura Watts and Candice Holdsworth, a Fashion Journalist. Discussing the petition that calls on the UK government to follow France and California in introducing legislation to protect models, the panel will look at the pros and cons of moving from self-regulation to legal regulation and the effect on both the fashion industry and body image amongst the general public.
Following the discussion, guests are invited to complimentary drinks at The Grooming Room’s cocktail hour, a Fashion Week VIP experience. Designed as a stop-gap between shows for fashion influencers, celebs and press, The Grooming Room is fully equipped with the finest fashion and grooming brands to leave you feeling refreshed and pampered.
Tickets are priced at £15 and can be purchased from http://www.thefashiondebates.com/
