  • Two of the world's biggest luxury goods companies will stop working with fashion models that are too thin.
  • 2
  • The agreement, signed this week by the French companies LVMH and Kering, seeks to protect the health of fashion models.
  • 3
  • The agreement will affect well-known brands including Dior, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and others.
  • 4
  • The companies' agreement meets - and goes beyond - the requirements of a new French law.
  • 5
  • That law, which will start on October 1, requires male and female models to show health certificates received within the past two years.
  • 6
  • LMVH and Kering said their new agreement would shorten that requirement to six months.
  • 7
  • LMVH and Kering also agreed to ban the use of female models who are below a French woman's size 34.
  • 8
  • That is similar to a U.S. size 0-2 and a U.K. size 6.
  • 9
  • The two groups said they hoped to set a new standard for the fashion industry.
  • 10
  • "We hope to inspire the entire industry to follow suit, thus making a real difference in the working conditions of fashion models industry-wide,"
  • 11
  • Kering CEO Francois-Henri Pinault said in a statement.
  • 12
  • Unlike the French law, the agreement will apply to the international Kering and LVMH brands.
