Organizers of Spain’s top fashion show rejected five models for being too thin this weekend.
They had previously announced that women below a body mass to height ratio of 18 would not be permitted to walk the catwalk.
One of the models was 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighed only 110 pounds. She was rejected because her body mass index was only 16.
Some of the girls had just participated in 25 shows at New York’s Fashion Week.
It’s time for a fashion reality check.
