London, June 13 (ANI): Alexandra Shulman, the editor of Vogue’s British edition, has blasted world’s leading catwalk designers for dragging super-skinny models into magazines despite growing concern over “size-zero” trend.

In an effort to raise awareness and vent anger, Shulman has taken on all the largest fashion houses in a strongly worded letter sent to scores of designers in Europe and America.

The letter, which is not for publication but has been seen by The Times, Shulman has accused designers of making magazines hire models with “jutting bones and no breasts or hips” by supplying them with “minuscule” garments for their photoshoots.

She said Vogue is now frequently “retouching” photographs to make models look larger.

“We have now reached the point where many of the sample sizes don’t comfortably fit even the established star models,” Shulman writes, in a letter sent to Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano and fellow designers at Prada, Versace, Yves Saint Laurent, Balen- ciaga and other top fashion houses. (ANI)
