MAJOR BITE: SKINNY MODELS OFF THE RUNWAY PLEASE!

Size on the runway is no new issue to the fashion world. Skinny has always been "in". But let's be realistic here- the average woman in America is a size 12. You would never know that judging from the looks of the modern runway where models are bone thin at a size 0.

In recent months, size has been under the microscope as a handful of designers have been banning models for being too thin and/or encouraging them to "fatten up". Could it be step in the right direction? Depends on who you ask. Some say yes, but there's still quite a way to go before any real change is seen.

Being a young woman with curves myself, I totally support the movement 100% because it's so crucial that women learn to appreciate and love their bodies as they are. It took me a while to do that myself. Self-love is #1.

I really commend George Namho from Marietta, Georgia for beginning this movement and campaign! It's such a much needed positive message to all women out there. Love the skin you're in ladies! Because you can truly be beautiful at any size. Don't let anyone tell you anything different!


THE MISSION BEHIND THE MOVEMENT

Our mission at SkinnyModelsOffTheRunway.com SMOTR is to Empower, Encourage & Motivate Real Women Worldwide, Of All Shapes, Sizes and Nationalities to Champion Together for Change in the Fashion Industry & In Life. Genesis 1:27 NIV

The first of its kind, SkinnyModelsOffTheRunway.com is the supportive presence and vehicle whereby “Real” Women worldwide can champion the need for the fashion industry to project a more true-to-life and accurate representation of body images. “Accountability is a necessary component of business. Unfortunately, our society tends to value and devalue women based solely upon their dress size. Like it or not, the public is enamored with and heavily influenced by fashion media; it is the barometer for what is onsidered acceptable or not. A measure of accountability is inescapable.”

JOIN THE MOVEMENT NOW!
