Fashion editors do good! The minimum age for runway modeling at Australian fashion week has been raised to 16-years old for both males and females. The setting of a minimum age developed after editors at Australian Vogue and Marie Claire threatened to pull coverage of the event after the organizers of the fashion week had decided to make 14-year-old Monika Jagaciak its star. The 16-year-old age limit is not new to fashion weeks across the world: London, Sao Paolo, and Paris fashion weeks have similar restrictions. Now, if only they got more women of different ethnicities and body types walking the shows and in the magazines then we would be out of a job. [Reuters]
