My agency works with some of the biggest brands on the high street - Topshop, River Island, Selfridges just to name a few. The majority of our models are a size 8 or a size 10 yet they work regularly with these brands because it's about a healthy, well-proportioned figure.

Your cotton T-shirt has about the same carbon footprint as driving a car for 5 miles. That may not seem like a lot, but it adds up. Each year, cotton clothing is responsible for greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to driving to the sun and back more than 1,000 times, or removing about 10% of the US's passenger vehicles off the road, according to an MIT report released this week.
