BASE- On a serious note
Looking at the website for Base, a modelling agency in England, I came across their modeling profiles. I was impressed to see models ranging in many different age groups, but honestly a little disappointed to see few models who weren't white featured on the page. By the looks of it no plus sized models. I know I've said that models have a bad reputation but honestly, websites like these aren't helping. It's an honest shame that models are seen as tall, slender white women. Plus sized models and inter racial models are more on the outside. As I've mentioned not many black women walk the catwalk these days. It's not fair, bigger women, curvier women and women of different races should be walking the catwalk during fashion month without it being a big deal. Honestly it should NOT be a big deal. We shouldn't feel the need to publicize it when it does happen because, in my opinion it should be a social norm.
