Wanted: Plus size model ... or rather, a #nonskinnymodel
We have found an amazing model to work with for our next fashion photo-shoot with Troy Lee (Insta @TroyLeePhotography) planned for October 20. Yay!!
In the meantime we started a search for a stunning plus size model. We rather call it a #nonskinny model. But we do feel the urge to mention that we do not have anything against skinny, or thin, models. You are awesome!!
We rather say non skinny because we mean non skinny. In todays fashion industry a model is called plus size when she is, thin, just not, skinny. So when our search for a plus size model started we received an enormous response from well, plus (!) size models. Also fine! We have received the most fabulous photo's of the most stunning girls! All in their own way special and be-au-ti-ful! And we are planning a fashion photo-shoot with the top 5 of them very soon.
But, getting back to the purpose of this blog post, what do you call a non-skinny-non-plus-size-model?
Normal. Regular. Average. Midsize. Moderate. Or standard...
Somehow these words all tend to have some negativity attached to it. Somehow being average is not good? We at Aimmea feel that is wrong! Especially since the 'average' size is the most sold size of any fashion brand! That is why it is called average afterall.
So there you go, we are looking for a normal model in Johannesburg for one of our upcoming fashion photo-shoots ;)
