OUR MISSION STATEMENT
“The Responsible Trust for Models works with the Fashion Industry to protect, educate and support models, ensuring them the best possible career and a safety-net against abuse. Participation in our programme will act as an assurance of best practice in all areas, including mental and physical health, gender equality, sustainability and ethical employment, guaranteeing the absence of slavery and child labour in the supply chain and that NO BODY has been damaged in the making of these goods."
WHAT IS RTM?
The Responsible Trust for Models is an independent organization, founded by Elizabeth Peyton-Jones in 2016. It is not part of the fashion industry, but seeks to combine fashion with ethics by enrolling the most influential brands, and championing them to pioneer an independently audited certification over model agencies, which will then become a globally recognized standard for the ethical treatment of models.
THE THREE PILLARS OF RTM
- A certification across model agencies worldwide.
- A structured educational curriculum for models to learn their trade.
- A support system for a Gold Standard Model from certified model agencies.
