Talking about support.. Real CHANGE is about to happening once again in the big apple! The “Fabric Act” chooses the side of the garment worker. 🤜🏻🤜🏿🤜🏽
The bill is all about securing their basic protections, tackling reshoring tax incentives, the piece-rate pay system, joint liability and more. If passes, the bill will start a $40 million domestic garment manufacturing support program. 🧩
Senators Kirsten Gillibrand introduced the pro-labor federal bill in the Garment District last month with much support, including @workersunited , @remakeourworld , @garmentworkercenter, @modelallianceny , @fash_rev , @theslowfactory and @nsifashion2030
Fingers crossed! It is formal initiatives like this that can truly disrupt the industry, making it a healthier place to work in for all parties involved. 🩹

A while ago we followed @anetta.tiara.hartono during fashion week. We share some beautiful mental health related words from her to inspire you for the upcoming weekend. Take care! 🍀🩹
“I have been constantly hard working since my childhood. Always being an A-student. Thriving for success. And honesty it came easy to me. I was so quick in everything.
In the last few months I was challenged in taking it sow and being patient. In not working, but instead - resting.
It was so so hard for me at the
beginning and so so important for me to learn:
my worth is not determined
by outer success or how much I work. I have been conditioned like that but it's not the truth. Truth is I am loved at any time and I am a wonderful, complete and loving human being without needing to prove it.
I allowed myself to lean back and enjoy the view. Enjoy how far I've come. Enjoy the time with my people. My lovely people. How grateful I am for them.
And also enjoying being alone. I'm catching myself feeling that I couldn’t be happier than in this very moment and saying "this is the best day ever" one day after another. 💫 I have learned that this inner peace is what I want to feel in life.”

It is becoming clearer and clearer that the heroin-chic version of fashion from the 90s doesn’t fit our inclusive new world and is in fact out of fashion. Nevertheless, there is much room for improvement. Designer and creative director @diekidiek (28) thinks so too. The Models Health Pledge spoke to Diek about the Dutch fashion industry, a successful working day and his role as Head of Fashion during the Eurovision Song Contest last year. 💬💡

Diek: “The commercial fast fashion segment should quickly switch to “average” sizes in order to sell a fairer image. If this also slows down mass production, that's a plus." ... See MoreSee Less
The Met is already three days history, but the talks have only just begun, the most discussed dress+celeb combo being Kim Kardashian. She showed up to gala in the dress Marilyn Monroe in 1962, singing Happy Birthday to the President of the US. Undeniably, it is a divine piece, with 2500 crystals on a nude mesh fabric, design by Jean Louis. 💎
Apart from its high value (it sold for $4.6 million in 2016), the dress represents a beauty standard dilemma. It seems Kim herself was more “bespoke” than the garment she was showing off. Kim confessed that she lost 16 lbs in three weeks to fit into the dress. 🤔
Kim has been representing the modern way of ideal beauty since she entered the celebrity world: slim but muscely and curved. Basically: impossible. Young girls are looking up to her, and as Gen Z and Alpha are predicted to be the biggest spenders soon - so are fashion brands. They propagate the visual in all ads, implicitly and explicitly.
⚠️ Should we applaud losing weight to fit into a dress, to accentuate an idealistic body shape? ⁉️
⚠️What does showcasing unrealistic beauty standards do to the mental health of the youngest generations, to their self worth, to their eating habits? ⁉️

We dedicate the month May to #support
May is freshness, is spring, is new beginnings. Especially with our health, it’s a matter of starting over and over again, and again. And to keep motivated and take new steps, nothing helps more than support.
Some questions for you to consider:
✔️Where can creatives go in the industry for support?
✔️What support is needed?
✔️What support are we missing as an industry?
At TMHP we have a reporting point for misconduct within the industry. Don’t hesitate to use it or tell others about it. 🗣
