In a society invaded by images, visual texts carry a great significance and have a strong impact on collective and individual representations. In particular fashion images are considered very influential on young girls’ self image which seems to a big extent measured against the unreachable standard proposed by the models’ bodies. Although several studies show that the extreme thinness proposed as an ideal body figure may have negative effect on the diffusion of eating disorders, creators and producers of these images show very little or no awareness of this fact; on a more general basis their whole creative work does not take into account the life and experience of the women- consumers of fashion. On the contrary the goal of fashion images emerges as the attempt to create an association between brands and often unrealistic, although desirable lifestyles.
