niya wilson's insight:

plus sized models will be able to walk the runway on fashion week.

Designer Eden miller is a designer for women that are fill figured. She will be the first designer to have plus sized models walk the runway for fashion week. She says "if you have a bigger body, you shouldn't pretend you are a tiny person -- there is no point," she said.

"If you scale up the pattern, it fits the body the way a smaller pattern would on a smaller figure."

model tyra banks made a foundation called the T-zone for girls ho suffer with body image. T-zone is a place for girls to think good of themselves and focus on their future. Tyra banks was once called  fat after a picture was taken in her swim suite. She didn't think weighing 161 pounds was fat. So she came out in her swim suite on her talk show to show that she wasnt fat. She asked her aduenince if she was fat and most of them disagreed.

niya wilson's insight:

modeling has changed over the years that is what most of the older models say. They say back in the days weight was really a problem for models.  Wanting to be able to walk the runway think they have to be very thin to get picked. That is why most of them have anorexia

but anorexia is not the only problem in the model industry. Obesity is also becoming more of a problem because more plus size models are starting to become more famous. Although more plus size models try to start to lose weight when they start this career they're are more that still continue to not eat right and get bigger.

Even as more and more women get larger and larger, what is available to outfit them remains limited.
niya wilson's insight:

Earlier this year, the editors of V, a magazine so recherché it can make Vogue seem like Redbook, published an issue featuring large models in expensive body-baring clothes. In one photograph, a woman in a strapless bathing suit, cut to reveal three rolls of flesh, grabs at her platform stilettos. In another, Tara Lynn, a size 16 model, is clad in nothing but a pair of Dior sandals.

The Skinny on Models: EBSCOhost

niya wilson's insight:

they say that the fashion industry in leading industry with thin model and also the blame for why women don't like their body.

But you cant really just blame the fashion industry for why people do not like the way they look. It had to b deeper than that because obesity is also a problem right along with anorexia.

Plus-Size Model Editorial Says Runway Models ‘Meet the Physical Criteria for Anorexia’ | model body disorders | Scoop.it
Models–their size, their age, even their gender–are provoking a lot of polarizing discussion lately. And plus-size model advocates (and their “real-woman” counterparts) are adding food for thought–or fuel to the fire, depending on your perspective.

niya wilson's insight:

everyone agrees anorexia and eating disorders are a serious issue but most of the problem isn't restricted to the fashion industry. most of the models you see on the runway are very skinny. most of them have a anorexia or bulimia. fashion designers say they are not going to change the type of model they are looking for to walk the runway. fashion council designer of America had devised a healthy model guidelines that are creating awareness of eating disorders. so you have to have a body mass index of 18.5 if your 16 or older.

While the average model is getting slimmer, the average woman is also getting fatter...it's not always the models' fault. No wonder weight loss programs are booming
