New York Fashion Week puts first wheelchair-bound model on the runway | todaysfashion | Scoop.it
Dr Danielle Sheypuk, 35, made her debut in the Carrie Hammer show last Thursday, wearing a black sweater and newspaper-printed skirt.
Molly Patt Horan's insight:

This connects because the fact that this was even a big deal shows that the expectations of models in fashion is that she has to be tall, skinny, etc.

The unrealistic expectations of men by the fashion industry are not all unattainable. - Imgur | todaysfashion | Scoop.it
Imgur is home to the web's most popular image content, curated in real time by a dedicated community through commenting, voting and sharing.
Molly Patt Horan's insight:

This is interesting because we always see how women have unrealistic expectations, but this talks about how men have it too. And they do. It was interesting to me because I, too, overlook that men have unrealistic expectations also.

Unrealistic expectations always in fashion

Unrealistic expectations always in fashion | todaysfashion | Scoop.it
Germany's most popular women's magazine, Brigitte, recently announced that starting next year, it would ban professional models from its pages to combat the glorification of ultra-thin women, and use "real" women instead. [...] in October, Polo Ralph Lauren sparked international outrage by Photoshopping out the true girth of size 4 model Filippa Hamilton to create an image of an absurdly skinny body. Hamilton, who claims she was fired by Ralph Lauren for being too fat, told the "Today" show that the distorted photo of her could make young women "think that it's normal to look like that, and it's not." Last year fashion officials in Madrid and Milan established a minimum body mass index (BMI) restrictions to prevent underweight models from taking the runways, and France pushed legislation to fine anyone - including magazines, advertisers and Web sites - who publicly promotes extreme thinness. [...] when we tuned in, we found the experts critiquing girls for failing to convey the illusion of height and long legs in their photo shoots.
Molly Patt Horan's insight:

This is good showing that fashion has always had unrealistic expectations and it more than likely always will.

Effects of advertising on teen body image - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Effects of advertising on teen body image

The effects of advertising on body image have been studied by researchers, ranging from psychologists to marketing professionals. This is due to the fact that thousands of advertisements contain messages about physical attractiveness and beauty, examples of which include commercials for clothes, cosmetics, weight reduction, and physical fitness.

Molly Patt Horan's insight:

This is a wikipedia, but it has good insight. It also talks about effects on men. this is more targeted on body image, but this and fashion run hand and hand when there is an expectation on body image that puts in on fashion because your body is the canvas of fashion.

Magazine covers. Runway models. They all have one thing in common: They are far smaller than the average American woman.
Molly Patt Horan's insight:

this is a good one about "how to defend yourself against the fashion expectations" but why do we need to defend ourselves? This shows exactly what we shouldnt have, there should be nothing to defend ourselves about because the fashion industry made us think that people should be a certain way.

I think its great that little kids can express their style at such a young age, but it is really the parents dressing the child and also children should be able to wear clothes that they can be kids in and get messy if they do.
