I am sorry, but do we not exploit those girls by expecting and celebrating a “look” that requires them to look like the walking dead?

And you should have heard what she said to me about these particular photos… I was a bit shocked to hear her comments…

And me? I believe these gorgeous dresses would look more stunning on older woman…

I love that there are some modest options in the collection. I personally think the style is youthful and the fit and cut of these dresses can be flattering on all different kinds of figures, not just the model types.

I cannot even see the dresses because the girls look, literally, sick. It’s as if the series is designed to emphasize this, with the lighting, disheveled hair and ultra pale skin. I am troubled that Koseli found these ‘stunning’ I am in no way, shape or form a fashion expert, but I really do not get this.

What is wrong with our society or the fashion world that they feel to sell clothes they must be displayed on children?

I agree with the rest. Dresses are beautiful, but models looks like walking dead, specially in the last picture . When I saw it I thought about pictures people used to take when someone died centuries ago.

They look like they have not eaten in years and now that I have a daughter and another on the way, it terrifies me that other women could think looking like that is glamorous. Yes the dresses are beautiful, but I hate how the fashion industry does not embrace normal women, we are all beautiful and until they start embracing that philosophy I have no desire to support their endeavors. I don’t want my daughters or myself getting caught up believing we have to starve ourselves to be glamorous.

glam·or·ous, adjective
1.full of glamour; charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way.
2. full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity.

If this is the definition, then I think someone who is fascinatingly attractive is someone who cares about their body to be healthy, eat right and exercise. Someone who is kind and thinks about others daily, who is intelligent and earns her education and uses it to bless others, someone active in her community, someone who embraces motherhood with all its non-glamorous aspects knowing it will shape generations to come if she does it right. Someone who does not indulge in vulgar speaking, or who dresses immodestly, but who respects her body by covering it up. That to me is a woman who can be called glamorous. Just my thoughts!

I must admit that I agree with the other comments, though:the models look like emaciated children, and their expressions are a little scary.

However, the models are so young; it seems weird to have children model gowns intended for women. They are so young looking that, to me, it takes away from the dresses because they look like they are playing dress-up.

I have just discovered TER ET BANTINE and I am in love with it. Very clever and an original design. Thank you for sharing.
