Eating Disorders and the Fashion Industry
Date: June 28, 2022
Presenter: Dr. Kristine Flanigan
Listen to the presentation
The fashion industry and media are large contributors to the construct of an "ideal body" which is often harmful to one's sense of self and has a notable connection to the development of eating disorders. This talk aims to educate on the inner workings of the fashion industry, specifically how clothing is made, to help educate individuals so that they may learn that size is just a number/letter and not a means of self-worth.
