Child Model Bill Passes State Government: On Wednesday, a bill to protect child models under the New York Department of Labor passed through the state’s Senate and House. Once signed into law by New York state Governor Andrew Cuomo, child models will be subject to the same protections now enjoyed by underage actors and performers. Spearheaded by Model Alliance founder Sara Ziff, with the help of NY state Senator Jeffrey Klein, the bill stipulates that models under 16 must be accompanied by a chaperone, are not allowed to work past midnight and can only return to work 12 hours later, and that  15 percent of all wages must be placed into a trust account that is only accessible once the model turns 18. If Cuomo signs the bill into law before the state government goes on summer hiatus at the end of June, all regulations will apply to New York Fashion Week in September. Ziff and her Model Alliance cohorts are positive that these stipulations will make it more difficult to hire child models and could skew the industry aesthetic in a more grown-up direction.
