Kering and LVMH, the parent companies of Louis Vuitton, Dior, Balenciaga, Christopher Kane, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, Céline and more, have come together to sign a charter to improve the working conditions for models.
The charter states that models must be a U.S. size 2 or larger, so all size 0 models will now be officially banned from both companies’ shows.
Age restrictions were also imposed, with models under 16 banned from photo shoots and runway shows. Models aged 16-18 also won’t be able to work from 10 p.m.-6 a.m., and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The changes will come into effect ahead of this season’s Paris Fashion Week.
In other fashion week news, YEEZY Season 6 is still happening, just not during NYFW.
