Fashion modelling has changed. The past used to be aimed at super-skinny. Health implications however and the media pressure has led to debates about what constitutes a good model.
The majority of modeling does still seek and the criterion does still ask individual need to be thin.
Most catwalk models working at the moment in the UK and abroad are anything but large and therefore in the short term I can’t see a change in body shape instantly but some designers are leaning towards the larger models on some of their designs.
It is not acceptable that modeling firms, agents and photographers to encourage models to be skinny and a natural beauty is always what should be sort.
The organizers of the 2006 Madrid Fashion Week opted to completely ban size zero models from the show. This had a long lasting affect and really raised the profile on super slim models and the weight issues within the industry.
A lot of shows now are promoting plus size models and as the general populations sizes grows we will be seeing an increase in larger models so that the clothes look more realistic for the average lady.
