It's the time of year--and frankly the last day--do to these listicles discussing the year that was.  While we've retired our weekly Tuesday Tops feature (which still has great stuff to check out), we still like the idea of compiling solid, handy lists.  

Since fashion law is our specialty, and we want you to stay as up-to-date as possible on our favorite field, we're listing the Top Fashion Law Stories of 2015.  Let's hit it backwards, starting with last week...

B.A.F.F.L.E.D. Fashion Law

France Takes A Stand Against Unhealthy Modeling--

Just as U.S. Congresswoman Meng (D-NY) is working to address child labor issues in the United States, France is working to improve the culture of fashion modeling in one of the industry's oldest markets.


To ensure the reforms are real, France is requiring doctors' approval for models to participate in shows, proving they are not too thin, and healthy enough to take the catwalk.  This is a major step in an industry that's been fighting labor health and image issues for so long.  The bill passed by the French National Assembly also requires photos which have edited a model's appearance to note what edit was made.  

Similar to the laws already in place in Italy, Spain, and Israel, France's law includes fines for modeling agencies and advertisers in non-compliance.  While there is no law of this kind in America, we hope this is the start of a trend to promote not only healthy bodies in the modeling industry--of all sizes, but positive body images and high self-esteem, too.

Cheers to France on this move.
