Vogue's Health Initiative One Year Later: What's Improving, What's Not
It's been a while since we checked in on Vogue's Health Initiative, which officially celebrated its one year anniversary in June. Introduced last May, the initiative outlined six tenets which would work to promote health and well-being in the pages of Vogue's 19 (now 20) international editions. So how much progress has the Health Initiative one year later? We investigated.
Vogue Will No Longer Work With Unhealthy-Looking or Under-16 Models
They may not agree on everything, but the 19 international editors of Vogue are in assent on at least on topic: The health and wellbeing of models and readers alike. To that end, all of them have recently banded together to promote healthier body image within the industry and beyond in a Vogue-wide Health Initiative, to be unveiled in Vogue UK's June issue. The new initiative will make several efforts to improve models' working conditions, as well as promote healthier body images for readers. While the language in the new manifesto, which was posted on Vogue Italia, is a bit noncommittal at times, the new initiative is without a doubt a step in the right direction--and it should make a big impact on the kind of models and editorials we see in the magazines.
