Strike a (cobra) pose
Frockwriter has talked quite a lot about body image over the past week.
From our opinion piece on news.com.au reporter Matt Young’s diary of a skinny person, to new faces profiles of two size 12 models. One of whom, Ali Cromarty, was scouted by a mainstream model agency, which has high hopes of promoting her for mainstream fashion work, as distinct from “plus size” work.
And the other, Dolly Model Search 2012 contestant Maddison Parnham, who a mainstream model agency tried very hard to launch over the past 12 months, only to eventually refer her to a plus size model specialist.
And now to another new face – the kind of girl who finds herself stopped on the street by model scouts because she’s pretty, tall and already sample size (Australian 6-8).
Meet Aimee Manton, an 18 year-old, 5’11” trainee yoga teacher from Melbourne who was recently spotted at a Melbourne supermarket by FRM Model Management’s Stephen Bucknall and signed to the agency last month.
Herewith her first test.
