Former model Sara Ziff is once again fighting for model's rights.
Following the September release of Picture Me, a film that exposed the ugly side of the modeling, Ziff is hard at work developing a code of conduct for models.
The Columbia University senior explains:
"The modeling industry is essentially unregulated. There are no provisions for rest and meal breaks [during work hours]. And a lot of modeling agencies have a huge amount of power over international girls because they sponsor their visas."
Sara is getting some help from Fordham University's Fashion Law Institute and hopes the new code will create a safer working environment for models.
Sounds like a great idea! Hopefully it works.
