While leafing through TIME's Style & Design issue, I spotted a few choice quotes about the fashion/eating disorders controversy:
We don't see anorexic. The girls are skinny. They have skinny bones.
-- Karl Lagerfeld
I have never liked thin girls, and I have never made them go on the catwalk.
-- Giorgio Armani
I wanted to lose a few kilos recently, as I'm heavier than I was 20 or 30 years ago. It's really convenient to be thinner. I didn't eat for a day and a half, and the scales moved a little.
-- Vivienne Westwood
Fashion is not the cause of juvenile problems. There are other ways to take care of our young generation: stop showing half-naked starlets on television, ban silicone implants if one is not at least 25, for example.
-- Roberto Cavalli
Let's not become fanatics.
-- Diane von Furstenberg
