The Model Alliance Studies Expose Alarming Statistics

The Model Alliance is a non-profit organization seeking to improve the working conditions of models in the fashion industry. In their latest anonymous survey, the group gathered their data from a poll of 85 whose average age was 26. Although a smaller sample, the study consistently revealed alarming responses.

According to the investigation, 54.7% of models enter the field between the ages of 13 and 16, a concerning reality given this age group’s high susceptibility to peer pressure. To make matters worse, over half of the participants had been exposed to cocaine, while 76.5% of the respondents confirmed their proximity to other unnamed drugs and/or alcohol. 

The Model Alliance is trying to undo the effects of these startling statistics. Although this vocation may cater to a younger age group, the association wants to provide a reliable support system for the unjustly violated. The Model Alliance Support is a part of this objective and is a medium through which confidential abuse claims may be made.

With an array of disconcerting findings, the Model Alliance will certainly be gaining some new advocates.
