ALDA Modeling promotes plus-size models

These days, it seems like every way we turn there is a billboard, a magazine cover, a celebrity that makes the majority of us feel as though we need to cower from burgers and cuddle up to kale in order to lose those 10, 20, 30 pounds. Recently, however, there have been some strong new voices in the fashion industry preaching just the opposite and encouraging us to accept our bodies just the way they are. We are suddenly surrounded by beautiful women sporting sizes 12, 14, 16 garments and proving that beauty is truly independent of size. Whether it’s magazines, models, or fashion blogs, society is seeing a radical revolution in the way we define beauty.

Notable fashion magazines such as InStyle and Marie Claire have embraced the idea that curvy can be fashionable. With new segments catering to the size 12+ crowd and more and more magazines featuring plus size women on their covers, there’s no question that things are changing.

Varies blogs featuring plus size fashionistas  getting a lot of attention. As they do, it becomes easier for women of all sizes to embrace their curves by sporting the latest fashion trends.

ALDA modeling agency was founded by Ashley Graham, Danielle Redman, Inga Eiriksdottir, Julie Henderson, and Marquita Pring after Ford modeling agency shut down its New York plus-sized division. And the best part? The agency not only supports the plus-size community, it encourages the idea of beauty at any size: petite, curvy, tall, narrow, wide, etc.

With plus-size models like Ashley Graham reaching supermodel status, young fashion hopefuls around the world are learning that beauty is not defined by size.
