Celebrating legal protection for young models by PECHE Di
The law was proposed early in June this year from fashion industry leaders, specifically the Model Alliance. The Alliance, a network of models and industry insiders founded by Sara Ziff, has pushed for more rights and legal protection for models, including a model union.
Model Alliance member and model Coco Rocha, who promoted the bill this week, is thrilled with the vote. “I could not be happier,” she said. “If the Model Alliance never achieves anything else, this was monumental.”
The Department of Labor has posted child model FAQs to their website.

We celebrating new legislation that protect young models. The Model Alliance is a great non profit organization that created by Sara Ziff with notables Coco Rocha and James Scully on their board directors.
Fascinating to see how model law will affects New York Fashion Week in February 2014. A New York law signed by Andrew Cuomo the governor on Monday is set to increase protections for young models and restrict the use of teenagers on runways, giving them the same protections as minors who act, dance and play music professionally.
