The Truth About The Modeling Industry W/ Iskra Lawrence
Models reveal the ugly truth behind the fashion industry
Sashaying down the catwalk in their billowing patterned dresses and asymmetric coats, the models on the Balenciaga runway were the talk of Paris Fashion Week last weekend. Instead, the audience found themselves staring at the girls themselves: stick-thin, with emaciated limbs, protruding collarbones and a haunted look in their eyes. And sadly, still typical in the world of fashion. There was something in particular that had shifted the world's focus onto this particular catwalk. Days before, the luxury fashion house found itself embroiled in allegations of exploitation and cruelty towards the young women who attended a casting call for the show.

It can be incredibly boring
Fashion models are presented to the world as the perfect images of beauty and glamor, the very standard to which every woman should aspire. What is far lesser known is the dark world that underlies that portrait of seeming perfection. One model has decided to break her silence and speak out about her experiences in an exclusive interview with Women in the World.
For decades, modeling was a silent profession, where women were supposed to be seen and never heard. A month later, models. And in May, an Instagram post by the model Ulrikke Hayer in which she accused a casting director for a Louis Vuitton cruise show of telling her to consume nothing but water for 24 hours went viral. The day after the water edict, she was informed that she would not walk in the show. Indeed, social media platforms have become part of their selling power, often included on their measurement cards. Many use these tools to express their belief that for all of its seeming glamour, the modeling industry remains overrun with problems that include labor exploitation, sexual harassment and body shaming.
