The text, which bans the use of models under the age of 16 years old and models who measure less than a size 34, seeks to guarantee respectful working condition for these (often very young) fashion industry professionals.

For Erin Doherty, editor of Elle: "It is advantageous that the profession awakes at last. We will transform the system if we work collectively."

An opinion shared by America's Condé Nast, who unveiled Thursday its code of conduct, applying to all those who work on magazine shoots for the group.
