Director Jenny McQuaile- a freelance documentary producer has decided to come up with a documentary called “Straight/Curve”, which talks to models, agents, photographers, editors and stylists about how the industry needs to redefine their beauty standards to feature women of all sizes- and just how they are managing to do that.
In the documentary, we get a thorough look at why the fashion world still shies away from a prospective billion dollar industry and why we should drop the term “plus size”. It’s been noted that the reluctance of everyone to change hurts the society.
In the real world, the average woman is a size 14, in the fashion world, the average model is a size 0. Even though the body positive models are forging to change the fashion industry standard. There’s still a long way to go before the full range of body types reflected in magazines ads and runways.
The documentary was set to examine complex questions between the fashion industry, the media and body image. There will also be a film that will scrutinize and see the success of the program.
The documentary proves that there are people who are trying to make a difference in the fashion world by sending more body-positive messages out to young men and women.
Honestly, we can’t wait to see the film which is set to celebrate all body images and is scheduled to come out in 2016.
