Yesterday Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (which is being held in Sydney, Australia) finally restored my faith in Fashion Models and the organisers behind such events.
Year after year we have been faced with size zero models, some of which are lucky enough to actually make the clothes look nice, others just horrify the world with their skeletal frame. I find when models like this are used, it definitely sends the wrong message out to the younger generation females of today and also it doesn’t sell the clothes they are wearing as half the population of females watching can’t picture the clothes on a fuller figure.

In the Finale of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week yesterday, watching the showcase of designs by Kooey Australia has really shown the world that diversity is key! They have used a range of models of all sizes and for the first time, Ive looked at swimwear on a catwalk and thought, actually…. I would love to wear that! And that is down to seeing it on models of healthy proportions.
So I just wanted to say HURRAY! to the organisers of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week – Keep up the great work!
