According to WWD, the CFDA is trying to deal with the issue of eating disorders in the modeling world by "setting up health initiative booths at the Bryant Park tents, inside the lobby of IMG’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and backstage. In partnership with the Renfrew Center, a residential treatment facility for eating disorders, the booths will offer information on the guidelines, as well as an informational brochure on eating disorders, the signs and symptoms." We can't help but think that this is just a gesture to show that yes, they're doing something, but at least the CFDA is publicly acknowledging that there is a problem. [WWD, subscription req]
