Italian Vogue Petitions Against Pro-Ana Websites


Italian Vogue editor Franca Sozzani says she initially blamed Facebook for furthering the pro-anorexia movement, but then she did some “research” and found pro-anorexia websites and blogs (many of which, I would wager, use Vogue images as motivation).

In defense of what Sozzani knew I and countless other people would argue, Sozzani said:

“Fashion has been always blamed as one of the culprits of anorexia, and our commitment is the proof that fashion is ready to get on the frontline and struggle against the disorder.”

Glass half full: I guess heightened awareness from anywhere is a good thing.
