Major Modeling Agency Announces Launch Of Men's Plus-Size Division & Signs Their First Model!

Filed under: Fashion SmashionInspirationModelsInstagram

The first male plus-size model is signed to a major agency!

Slowly but surely, strides are being made in featuring more diversity in the fashion industry! Yay progress!

On Tuesday, major agency IMG Models announced the creation of a new plus-size men's division titled "Brawn."

Ivan Bart, president at IMG, dished on his decision:

"Brawn has a body positive message. Brawn is physical strength. The body positive messaging and size diversity is something that's relevant and something that continues to be on everybody's mind. We have to extend the conversation for men."

Zach Miko is the first model to be signed on, and it sounds like he's pretty excited, as he revealed the news to his Instagram followers, writing:

"What an honor to finally announce I have signed with @imgmodels I am so grateful and humbled Repost from@imgmodels using @RepostRegramApp - NOW REPRESENTING: @zachmiko! 🎉 Click the link in bio to find out more. #📷@leonardocorredor"

Such amazing news!

And in a new interview with BuzzFeed, Zach continued to gush about the monumental announcement, adding:

"Being a man of size I never imagined for a minute that this would be a possible career. Then, Ivan told me about his dreams for the fashion industry: diversity, inclusion, evolution. I knew then I hadn't just found an agency, I had found a home. The Brawn division is going to open up the fashion world to the everyman. Fashion is ever-changing, but more importantly it is ever-evolving."

Well, we can't to see what else is in store!!

Plus-Sized Barbie Doll Image Sparks MAJOR Debate! Should Companies Make Larger Dolls??

Filed under: Fashion SmashionYOU Decide!FacebookBarbieBody

Should a plus-size Barbie exist?? New image of bigger Barbie sparks debate!

Fostering a healthy body image is all the rage in the fashion industry these days!

For instance, major modeling agencies are now accepting models outside of their usual 5’10” - size 2 range, Tyra Banks has taken issue with the plus-size label, and models of all shapes and sizes have begun to grace high-fashion runways.

So is it time for the traditional Barbie doll to make a change as well?

With many young girls looking to Barbie’s curves and itty-bitty waist for an unhealthy source of thinspiration, many are saying yes.

A Facebook page dedicated to Plus Size Modeling recently posted a photo (above) asking followers if they would like to see bigger barbies in stores, and the response was decidedly mixed!

The responses ranged from:

"No one is naturally fat for gods sake, that's sending the message to girls that it's ok to look like this and be unhealthy.. How about we stop obsessing about being overweight and teach our children to eat healthy and get out and play…"

Tyra Banks on why "plus-size" is an awkward term in the fashion industry.
