At START UP Models we welcome aspiring models of all shapes and size. You have to have a model look and it is essential that you photograph well but we do not advocate the “size zero” model which promotes an unhealthy attitude to body image.
The modelling industry has changed considerably over the last few years and casting directors are now looking for real women to front their campaigns- think of the Dove Girls. They are all beautiful, healthy real women with curves and they are all working as professional models. Models with curves and plus size models are in demand more then ever before with brands such as Bravissimo and Simplybe.com becoming market leaders.
Plus-size model Robyn Lawley has become somewhat of supernova in the fashion industry, defying thinness to star on the world's most covetable magazine covers and ad campaigns.
The 23-year-old's curves have been featured on Vogue Italia and French Elle, and now, she has become the first plus-sized model ever to star in a Ralph Lauren campaign, breaking apart ingrained notions that bigger can't be beautiful
Plus sized models should be a size 14 – 18 and be confident with their body as well as having a great look and lots of charisma.
