MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
Hot on the heels of Debenham’s announcement that they were using size 16 mannequins – comes another ground-breaking announcement that they are going to use a disabled model in their advertising – read about it here.
There is a growing movement – across several industries and companies – all moving towards creating a more realistic view of us human beings. For too long the skinny, bony catwalk icons have held sway – but now the fight back begins.
The amazing diversity of we humans needs to be reflected in the images we see. We are so much more interesting than stick figures – and that includes seeing that disability is also part of our diversity.
