Subject: URGENT: FEMALE MODELS NEEDED

Hi, we are looking for two female models - one for a beauty shoot and another for a fashion shoot.

The beauty shoot takes place tomorrow, Thursday 16th March, from 9am at the Epsom campus - for this shoot we are looking for models who are around 5'7/5'8 or over and size 6-8-10

The fashion shoot will take place next week either Wednesday or Thursday - ideally we are looking for a model who is a size 6-8 and 5'8 or over.

Travel and lunch will be paid for.
If interested, please email some photos and I will get back to you asap.

Thanks,
Sara

My reply?
Nice to know the fashion industry really is changing. Here I was, a fool thinking 5'7/8 sizes 6-8-10 (ie Jack Skellington) had worn out it's appeal. The lunch bit at the end is a joke, right? ;D


Ugh. -.- Gets my goat.

are your sizes a lot different than US sizes? I thought a 6 there was a 4 here?

if so wouldn't a 10 there be an 8 here? for someone 5'7" that's not too outrageous.. I imagine some women could be healthy and that size or a size 8 there (6 here). Health can come in larger and smaller sizes at that height...


am I missing something?

Hmmm.... I'm a 8/10, a healthy BMI and 5ft9..
Seems reasonable to me.....

Me too (about it seeming reasonable). that's why I was wondering if the sizes weren't the difference I thought they were... I know people that are 5'7'', healthy (exercise, no eating disorder, okay relationship with food), and a size 4 (a size 6 there)... some people can be those things without being emaciated or skeletal

No I think the difference is 4 sizes not 2.. I don't know if that makes a difference but a US 0 is a UK 4

my bad (I googled it and all the sites I found said it said it was just 2 sizes - http://www.frenchfriends.info/practical ... onversions) -- . but regardless, I still think you could be a size 10UK, size 6US and 5'7" and healthy


I agree with MissNat that the reply was humorous (specifically the lunch part)

What annoyed me was that they automatically demanded "model specifications". I thought fashion students aspired to open up the industry to a wider audience, instead these may very well turn into the next idiots to advertise women's clothes using a young man's body. Whether it actually has a dick or not.

Sorry. Just really works me up. Cliché as it is, programmes on modelling and magazines repetitive imagery really did get me thinking "Hey, ya know what'd be a great idea? ;D..." ¬.¬;

That's because we don't do odd sizes for some reason so we only do multiples of 2 so technically it's 2 sizes despite being 4 figures.

here it's brand by brand whether or not we do odd sizes...
and as we all know sizes are worthless anyway as they differ by brand.

I like how expensive jeans/pants in the US (and I'm guessing most jeans in the UK) go with actual measurements for sizes. makes more sense to me.

like menswear

back on topic. sort of. dove when they did their campaign for real beaut even had specifications for those models... which I found interesting
