Well next week I am going to the Models of Diversity Curves in Couture show. This will be the first time that a plus-only catwalk show of this prestige has occurred in the UK.
Models of Diversity is a London-based non-profit organization which advocates for more diversity in models, and demands that the fashion and marketing industries recognise the beauty in women and men of all races, ages, shapes, sizes, abilities, genders and sexual orientations. They aim to change the face of fashion and modelling! They campaign to stand for equal rights and opportunities within the modelling and fashion industry. MoD has joined with Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone for the government's campaign on body confidence.
We all know there is a total lack of normal sized models being used on the catwalk. The whole size Zero debate has garnered multiple column inches across inumerable magazines and papers. Over 45% of the uk female population are a size 16 or above yet there is no recognition of this on the catwalk generally.
This show is going to cover high street fashion as well as high end. Anna Scholz and Jill Alexander will be showing as well as new designers like Miss Lacy I am so excited by this and promise to share all the juicy details with you here.
