Be proud of who you are, whatever shape and size
London UK (PRWEB UK) 15 April 2012
La Mode London say plus size models are wanted more than ever before. 'It's all about keeping it real,' they say.
Gone are the days of the waiflike, stick thin models required to model high-street clothing, report La Mode London. The modelling advice centre offers a top-class photo shoot and a high-quality, professionally produced portfolio for all shapes and sizes of models.
'The average woman in the UK is a size 14', continues La Mode. 'Companies promoting their clothing for the high-street are always on the lookout for slightly larger models for their catwalk shows. They want models to represent clothing for the general public, and they need models that look like the general public.'
La Mode goes on to explain that there are so many different types of modelling to choose from, for a model starting out in the industry, that a lot of women and men, don't consider themselves in the running because they feel they are larger than what is stereotypically accepted.
'This is 2012 and although, yes for the high end fashion market, a strict size and height rule is still adhered to for catwalk and fashion modelling, there are lots of companies promoting fashion shows which require plus size models and we've seen a surge in demand over recent months.'
The modelling advice company at the very heart of the modelling industry, recommend anyone who feels they would fall into the category of a plus size model , to maybe think seriously about taking up modelling as possibly a part time career or even as a full-time one.
'Being bigger is to be loud and proud,' says the director for La Mode. 'Be proud of who you are, whatever shape and size. As long as you have got the look a modelling agency or a company requiring plus size models needs, then there is plenty of work for larger models.' She goes on to say,' modelling isn't easy and it's certainly not for the shy. A model must be proud of their body and not be afraid to show it off when asked.'
There are so many ranges of clothing to suit different body shapes and La Mode know with firsthand experience. They can see a new trend in the casting jobs for plus size models. Informing all the models on their books of impending modelling jobs, is just another service that the model advice company provide on their website http://www.lamodelondon.com.
'The question we get asked more than anything else is 'how to become a model,' says Helen. 'It's all about model application. If a person has got the confidence to be proud of whom they are, and want to show the world their assets, then they have got the beginnings of a future in the modelling industry. There is no right and wrong way for a model to breakthrough, but how to become a model is entirely up to you. If you've got the looks, and you've got the swagger, then there is sure to be a niche within the modelling industry, if you have the determination to find it.'
