BGM Models and Aussie TV. Yeah!

BGM Model Natalie Wakeling

I have to say that I am SO, SO proud of Australia at the moment. Many of you will have seen my posts inspired by the Australian paper - The Sydney Morning Herald - a paper that covered the Elena Miro show, as well as discussed the popularity of plus-size models recently...

Thanks to a tweet by Madison Plus - I was directed to their blog post about The Morning Show in Australia. I again, feel so proud.

The Morning Show has assembled representatives from "plus size" model agency BGM Models as well as a fashion commentator, to discuss the comments by Garrance Dore.

This is a very Australian style interview and I want to let you know that the Morning Shows are extremely popular in Oz... (I believe that another morning show aired the Layne Bryant advert a few days ago too). Now, while I don't agree with everything that's said by everyone present in this interview - I think that the representatives from BGM Models (Director, Darianne Donnelly and model, Natalie Wakeling) do a great job. I love that this is such a passionate debate - happening on a popular (and influential) TV show. Take a look at the interview through the TV show site...


My favourite part is right at the end where Darianne reveals that one of the BGM Models - Laura will likely be in the next shows in Milan. Laura Wells is the current model for Evans and ASOS Curve. I adore Laura - and this is freaking awesome news!

Laura in Elena Miro might just drive me crazy!

Smooch. x.

  1. I am so jealous! It seems Australia and the UK are just way more into FATshion...where as here we have Torrid and Lane Bryant...I mean I have great pieces from both, but I miss the edge and chic styles of the UK and Europe.

    Oh, the life of an American Fatshionista. haha

  2. I agree with Sarah totally jealous too but we will get there! Way to go Aussies!



Hi there! Thank you for leaving your post. Due to some blatantly obvious spammers I have had to turned comment moderation back on with word captcha for older posts. Hopefully the spammers will bugger off and I can take some of the settings back to normal quickly! Thank you and smooches! Em. x
