Support the “Every body is a model body” campaign !

everybodycampaign-624

Reversing the trends of negative body image, body dysmorphic disorder, yo-yo dieting, anorexia, compulsive eating, binge eating, and bulimia on women requires a major shift in the way the female body is presented in the media, but fashion is by far the worst offender.

Many young girls grow up idolizing fashion models and as many teenagers can’t wait to try designing their own fashions, but if the only references they have are near-impossible ideals, how can we expect them to learn to accept and love their own body shape and size?

The power of imagery on our psyche goes a long way, and is unfortunately largely unconscious.
The Every body is a model body campaign aims to bring body diversity to the fashion design world by tracing real body silhouettes of all shapes and sizes and offering them freely for use by design lovers and students. By inviting women of every age and physical condition to participate as models, we wish to draw the line at how much we’re willing to buy into the false illusions the fashion industry creates by constantly undermining our self-esteem.

We believe that everybody is beautiful.
We believe that every body is a model body.

      Dear Maura,

      So glad to hear you like our Real Body template project! This is actually a completely volunteer endeavour. The professionals who created and maintain the site and produce the drawings do so quite graciously to support the cause. We are not even equipped to receive money in exchange for services, but we would be happy to produce your templates in exchange for getting afew other people involved by sending photos of themselves to become models as well. Do you think that’s possible in your entourage? Simply follow the “Photo Shoot” instructions on our site… we hope to hear from you again soon!

      Thank you,
      Colette
      for the Tracing Real Body Models team
