Commerce Scottish MSP Dennis Robertson is seeking a new design of shop mannequin which better reflects the body shape of normal humans:
"“Young people can be easily influenced from what they see in shop windows or fashion magazines, and these images can promote an unhealthy lifestyle which can lead to eating
disorders. It is not just the responsibility of medical professionals to help tackle the issue – the media and fashion industry must show some action, and I hope the 
British Retail Consortium will take action and issue advice to the fashion industry.”
Of course the BRC throws it on to individual retailers who then say they're doing what they can or will act on customer feedback, reflecting once again a society in which no one will take charge of anything, you know, just in case.
