Diane von Furstenberg’s Fashion Week health initiative


The fashion pioneer and CDFA president is pushing a health initiative that aims to combat eating disorders in the industry and keep models healthy.

Ah, New York Fashion Week. Its long hours, impossible body and beauty standards, and booze-fueled after-parties make for an environment that’s not exactly wellness-friendly.

But according to Styleite.com, this year, fashion pioneer and CDFA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) president Diane von Furstenberg (innovator of that wardrobe staple, the wrap dress) is pushing an initiative that aims to combat eating disorders in the modeling industry and keep models healthy.

Her proposed guidelines include providing water and nutritious snacks backstage at runway shows, providing nutrition and fitness workshops for models, and educating members of the industry on eating disorder warning signs.

Perhaps she’s taking a cue from forward-thinking model Anne-Marie Van Dijk, who founded Cleanse NYC to help young models lead healthier lifestyles?
