According to one of my favorite blogs, Bossip.com, Sweden is not very excited about a new H&M campaign that features Chanel Iman, one of the most popular models in the industry (she is very young, hip and chic). Swedes state that she is not a good image to the public because she is too skinny!
What’s interesting to me is that I previously taped a webisode of "Fashionista Files- (webisode 1), Are skinny models going out of style?" I made mention that the modeling world may be making a change in the way that models are viewed. The industry may be accepting the fact that people want to see clothes on women that are like them; real. This article confirmed my thoughts!
I am pleased to know that even though I am a young fashionista, I have voice that counts. I wonder if my show is what sparked the conversation. I guess I will never know, but I do know that I want to make a difference in the world of fashion and definitely make a change in the modeling industry because there are so many misconceptions about models and modeling that seem to snag young ladies quite often. Even though we have shows like America’s Next Top Model, models think that the industry is easy, fast money, and glamour. Many learn the hard way that those things couldn’t be further from the truth.
Check out the show Fashionista Files, and let me know what you think.
