Tess Holliday is one of the most talked about names in the plus size world, and today marks a very important day for her.

Exactly one year ago, the fashion icon signed with her modelling agency MiLK Management.

Holliday made history as the first model of her size (she's a UK 26) to ever sign with a major agency - a move that catapulted her to international fame.



Posting the above flashback snap on her Instagram, Holliday wrote "It's absolutely surreal to think this was a year ago today.

"I hadn't announced to the world yet that I signed with @milkmodelmanagement, and I had no idea how much it would change my life, and ultimately make history.

"2015 has been a whirlwind and I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you for being part of my journey, the best is yet to come. Thanks for believing in me."

With an upcoming wedding and clothing line in the pipeline, we think 2016 is going to be even more of a success for Tess.
