the state of the modeling union

>> If you listen to Anna Bayle's sources, models today are "generic,"
"nondescript,"  and even "disposable."   Bayle, who used to be a top model in the eighties, wrote an interesting in-depth article about the state of modeling today, and how it differs from the past.   It brings up quite a few interesting points, and even begs the question that she seems on the verge of asking: if fashion shows have become so "boring and robot-like," void of personality, are they even relevant anymore?  Editors see most clothing in preview sessions anyway, and if the designers really want models to be like marching hangers, why not save the money and use mannequins?  But then nothing adds to the idea of fashion being glamorous in the public eye than a runway show.
