^ oh of course it is true. It's just that the issue has been almost like a norm in the fashion industry already that finally these brave little souls are finally speaking up.

I'm so happy there's a thread! I encourage the discussion to keep going!

I'm curious what this community thinks: is there room for a union in this industry? There are whispers of gatherings and dialogue, but little actual establishment.

Without question, there is need for regulation.

i think there should be a union ,but that seeems impossible in an industry that has barely any regulations.I think there should be atleast a place where models should be able to go to with questions and where they would be able to recieve help if needed.but what bothers me the most is the fact that the powerful women (editiors/designers/castingdirectors etc.)in this industry have such little compassion for these young girls , they have the means and the power to do something about it.

i don't think it's possible to establish any kind of regulations in such an industry. there are thousands of models. if one girl steps up she'll be replaced by another.
i agree with modela that there sould be a place where they can receive help if needed

well with

but also with

*nutrition/mental issues/****edited****/pressure

i understand that models have motheragents and stuff like that ,but models should be able to get support from people who have no agenda and where they able to be helped in a discreet manner.

well a union wouldn't work anyways. collective agreements, minimum wages, regulations for holidays etc. would be impossible to establish in that industry.

In the UK some models are working with Equity, an actor's union, to improve working conditions. That seems like the way to go.

In the movies, the rules (breaks, safety, parents on set) are highly regulated by age. If a project is "exempt" then it might not pay very well, but still has to follow the rules.

This union exists for actors because highly regarded male actors with long careers made it happen. One former president of SAG (Screen Actors Guild) was Ronald Reagan. It's hard to get the same for teen girls without public outcry/legistation from above.
