Times are changing.

Ahh our favourite time of the year is upon us once again. New York Fashion Week.

Where the greatest designers and upcoming talent from all around the world come together to showcase their new collections and predicted seasonal trends.

Like our Sex and the City style Icon, Carrie Bradshaw once said: “Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward for the future. This is known as Fashion Week.”

And the future we most certainly look forward to, as major fashion powerhouse’s Gucci and Marc Jacobs alongside Dior and Balenciaga have just decided to ban models under a size two from the runway. This rule is affective as of immediately and takes every major runaway from Milan to Paris and even New York into account.

But it looks like banning models under a size two has been met by controversy on Twitter with some users believing this is a fantastic move, and others not so happy.

While others are not so sold on the idea and believe it is a form of body shaming towards thin people.
