Models Of Diversity

As a make up artist, it is my job to follow the brief for the shoot and view the models' outfits so I can compliment the make up to it. Angel Sinclair, who was directing the shoot, specifically asked for a very natural spring/spring/summer look.

Where Are The 'Inbetweener' Models?

The past couple of years the plus size models have been taking the fashion industry by storm 'empowering women' and encouraging women to love and accept their imperfections, the cellulite... the back fat.

Models Of Diversity Show The Fashion Industry What Diversity REALLY Looks Like

Days full of fabulous shows, outrageous outfits on the front row and skeletal teenagers strutting down the runway with the garments hanging off of their tiny frames.

Plus Size Models Matter Too

Women need to be able to relate to the model - how can you invisage yourself in an outfit if a teenage girl with a body of a boy is modelling it? I want to open a magazine and see all types of bodies looking back at me, because the world does not come in one dress size. Everybody is different and that is what makes us beautiful.

You Will Never Look Like the Girl in the Magazine

From the age of 10 I was obsessed with models and fashion I loved the creativity and the glamour. I would look at these images and wish I to could look like those models in the magazines, being young and naive I was unaware about the hard work that is put into creating an image and that what I was really looking at were images of fantasy.

Why Is the Fashion Industry So Black and White?

The fashion industry can make a change on how beauty is perceived and in turn I would hope in everyday life people would judge someone on them as a person, not to be judged on skin colour.

We Are Beautiful No Matter What They Say

When it came to my turn to rock the runway I was more than ready to show my size 12 curves off to the crowd in a sheer top and high wasted skirt, I loved every minute of it. The cheers from the crowd and the amazing energy was a true sign of what the public like, that is diversity and real people who they can relate to.
