The French ambassador to Denmark is strongly committed to ethics in the fashion industry. He took immediate action following the incident reported by the fashion Danish model Ulrikke Louise Lahn Høyer in relation to a show organised for Louis Vuitton
François Zimeray called LVMH to get a better understanding of the reported incident. He will meet Ulrikke Louise Lahn Høyer.

The ambassador recalls the commitment of France for the promotion of high ethical standards within the fashion industry.
France has passed a demanding legislation to protect both the health of the models and their young public against any kind of excess. By law of 26 January 2016 France established as a requirement for the activity as a model a medical certificate, based in particular on the Body Mass Index.
The law also requires that the public be informed when commercial photos are modified in view of producing a change in the appearance of the body of the model.
