Over the years we are pressured under the ideal beauty of being thin and skinny, for every new years revolutions- women aims to loose weight is very predictable. Add to the point, many beauty agencies promote their slimming services at papers: loose weight for A New Year! Question is: why is skinny always tied to beauty?
An interesting statement by Karl Lagerfield- “Fashion is the healthiest motivation for losing weight”. These keep me pause & think: why are there so many fashion designers trying to loose weight? in order to look better? For example Rodarte sisters(Kate and Laura), Marc Jacobs and Karl Lagerfeld? Is it for their business or a better image for the brand? Then designer Alber Elbaz (Lanvin) had this to say: “I am overweight, so I am very, very aware of what to show and what not to show, and I am sure there is a huge link with being an overweight designer and the work I do. My fantasy is to be skinny.”
In conclusion, do you use fashion as your motivator to loose weight and get shapes? or healthy is your number one factor?
