After the past few seasons of fashion weeks, I couldn’t help but notice the increase in the lack of lingerie worn by models on the runways, and the rise in designers who clothe their girls in sheer fabrics, with their breasts exposed. They may be beautiful, bold and brave, but is it necessary that they parade down the catwalk bare-breasted?
Although most working in the industry find it to be completely normal, I was appalled. Movies are often rated “R” for nudity, but you would never see a pop-up window on a fashion blog or on Style.com confirming that you’re 18 or older. After all, why should there be an age limit on viewing standard, seasonal fashion photos? There isn’t, and probably won’t ever be. But nonetheless, fashion is becoming more and more “naked.” Flip to page 14 to read the full article here, in McClung’s- a feminist magazine based out of Ryerson University in Toronto.
I love this post and I completely support the author’s point of view. I don’t believe the beauty supposed to be an exposed issue.
Thank you for highlighting this point on your blog.
