New York Magazine "asked four members of the fashion community— two models, an editor, and a show producer—to track their intake during the frenzy" of NYC's Spring Fashion week and the results were compiled into the Fashion Week Food Diaries. Granted, the female model they chose to keep a diary is 21 and American and most of the alarmingly thin models of today are teenagers from the most impoverished parts of Eastern Europe, but it's still pretty telling that she had more to eat in one or two meals than the fashion editor ate in the entirety of her diary-keeping. Something to think about the next time you have a discussion about food, eating disorders, body image and the culpability of the fashion industry.
