Following on from the skinny model debate the Sunday Times has an article about the influx of Eastern European models on London Fashion Week.

"They may look pale, bored and almost translucent, but designers cannot see enough of them… This week a “good half” of the 300 girls on parade in London will be from eastern Europe, according to the Association of Model Agents (AMA).

With their tall, thin bodies, the Slavic-look models are often closer to the “size zero” figures demanded by some designers than their western counterparts. Their growing presence poses a threat to supermodels such as Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. Fashion industry insiders warn that the rapid expansion of the “Russian doll” is pushing down modelling fees."
