"Wah wah wah, the models are too skinny, do u want us to lyke, die 4 fashion or sumthin?"

Death is the subject of all kinds of art - music, visual art, movies, books, and yes, even fashion. It's been glamorized for hundreds of years. Just because Western culture is afraid of it doesn't mean we shouldn't talk about it.

^ fashion has a peculiar relation to death though - because of its specific time structure.

I know that this is thread is a bit old, but isn't it funny that The Neon Demon - that is, the only high fashion-themed movie that's come out in a while (that I can think of, anyways) - is very dark/death-centered?
