Fashionista News: Another Fashion Model Commits Suicide

For two years, the fashion industry has been plagued by unexpected suicides. Over the weekend Bollywood actress and Indian model Viveka Babajee, 37, was found dead in her Mumbai apartment; Babajee allegedly hung herself from a ceiling fan, according to the Thaindian News. Reports has surfaced that the former Miss Mauritius titleholder and one-time face of Coca-Cola and Kama Sutra ads in India, suffered from severe depression.
In related news, one day before the kicked off of men's fashion week, 22-year-old French model Tom Nicon plunged to his death at his apartment in Milan, in what "authorities suspect was a suicide".
So the question that isn't being asked is WHY? Why are all these talented and beautiful people ending their lives. In the past two years, a disturbing number of fashion insiders have taken their own lives. There was 20-year-old Korean born model Daul Kim, who also hung herself last November in her Paris apartment. French model NoƩmie Lenoir attempted to end her life reportedly after a terrible break up in May. And sadly the list goes on with the deaths of Russian Vogue cover model Ruslana Korshunova, Colombian model-turned-TV presenter Lina Marulanda, Canadaian model Hayley Kohle, designer Alexander McQueen and his muse Isabella Blow.
Fashion has always been filled with glam and glitz but I think now is a great time to do something. But What?
