"What we are saying is that with this image (models) are provoking girls to look like them and to be able to look like them they have to take horrendous diets. We want this image to disappear, what we want is a healthy image. Let them be tall and thin but within normal limits, we are not asking for extremes. A woman to be beautiful does not have to be skeleton. With a little bit more weight a girl is a lot more beautiful than when she is terribly thin"

"Fashion has been one of the factors that has provoked the increase in the number of cases (of anorexia) in the last 40 years. If this fashion of extreme thinness didn't exist the cases of anorexia and bulimia would be very, very few. Whilst this fashion phenomenon continues new cases will appear."

"In magazines, advertisements, one sees people that are ill and who could be some of our patients, these ill people are being used by advertisers. To use an ill person is an ethical problem. It also creates a belief in potentially ill people that by following this strict codes there may be some sort of future in it for them."

"We haven't realised what was happening, because you are so busy doing what you are doing you don't see it. The fashion world has been showing an increasingly thin woman, skinny up to the point of being ill. I have never made designs for extremely thin people but sometimes I may have chosen models that I should not have picked."

" I assure you that (anorexia) is only to be found in a minority within the world of fashion. I don't think that being thin is to have an eating disorder. (Anorexia) is an illness that is provoked by other factors. A model has to be tall and thin."

LEAD IN :
Spanish experts in the eating disorder, Anorexia Nervosa, have expressed their concerns over the increasing use of extremely thin models on the international catwalks.
And one psychiatrist has gone as far as saying the extreme size of some models positively encourages anorexia and bulimia.
The 2007 Spring Summer collections of Spain's leading designers were unveiled this week.
