Although intentions were good, this brand has brought controversy to the table.

On our minds is the continuous topic of models’ weight and the fashion label which has just implemented a controversial policy that requires the models they hire to eat in order to get paid. British brand Rose & Willard explained their reasoning behind the rule in an essay in Huffington Post entitled ‘Our Models Will Have No Choice But to Eat’, describing it as a non-negotiable contractual term with the model agency which will state that the model must eat a meal on set, and in their presence. Though well-intended, critics mean that implementations like these can be seen as patronising or even just another form of regulating women’s bodies. Read the essay here.
