Dealing With Eating Disorders

It's estimated that between 5 and 10% of girls and women have eating disorders. It took a fashion designer's daughter crying on the bathroom floor, hysterical about her balemia to realize his clothes were causing her stress about her body.

Hollywood designer Bradley Bayou's daughter felt the need to fit into his sample sizes meant for models and all in size zero's and two's.

She became bulimic but fit into the clothes. Once her dad found out about her disease he was horrified and changed his whole style of fashion design. His daughter, Alexis battled for 6 years before asking for help. Now she's doing fine and his next fashion show later this year in London will feature samples in sizes four through ten.

    I am the mother of a bulimic daughter...I am glad he 'got it' about the sizes. It is an insidious and evil concept of size 0 anyway...0 means nothing or no one....but most clothes are designed like this, especially for young girls and young women. Lets think about what we are doing when we accept this whole concept as somehow OK or even remotely desirable.

    I'm really glad that he decided to change his line...I feel it's wrong for the size zero models to be there. I am a sufferer of both anorexia and bulimia, and i can completely understand. I am very glad the fashion industry is finally changing their ways. Every little step counts.
