Vogue understands that in the past they have contributed to a fashion world that hires mid-teens to step into an adults shoes, but they want to leave this in the past.

Plus-size modelling is making waves in the industry and hopefully will become more than a token gesture, but until then we must protect teens and young people from the potentially negative thoughts that high-fashion can lead to regarding body shape and size.
In this industry, model height is much more relaxed, especially for teens. Popular high street stores such as Next and M&S seek a friendly, happy face rather than an unachievable height. The images are much more innocent and suitable for their target audience. Different heights are considered as long as they match campaign requirements.
Commercial modelling agencies are looking for teens who photograph well, have a good smile and are natural in front of the camera. Their confidence is much more important than height as brands are looking to find inspirational models whose looks are attainable to inspire customers.
