EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH TOP PLUS SIZE U.K MODEL MS RACHEL
I am ostensibly a 37 year old house wife from the fens.I grew up on Guernsey in the Channel Islands and have been married for 12 years,I absolutely love fashion-particularly Alternative fashion.My main passions are shoes,red wine,social networking,art and my two dogs
How long have you been a plus size model?
I was spotted by a website owner in February of 2011 but began modelling on a professional level in may 2011.
What advice do you have for aspiring plus size model who are not as confident as you?
Your confidence will always waver so learn to take the good with the bad-try not to take it to the heart when people question your validity as a model.The industryis changing its perception......just slowly,consider the positive-at this stage you are a pioneer and a role model for other women
Whats your message to all those designers out there that dont use plus size models in their shows?
Jean Paul Gaultier can do it.....so can you!!Face it-the ultimate goal of a designer is to sell(beautiful and artistic)clothes.Not all people were born thin so show us how it can be done on all shapes and sizes--DONT CONFORM-REFORM
What do you like most about yourself and why?
I'm honest.....maybe too much sometimes-but there are worse traits:)
What word do you think is best to describe yourself and many others?FAT,PLUS SIZE,A+,OVER WEIGHT please explaine?
I'm Fat,there is no denying it.I have always been a larger girl but....i have relatively healthy diet,I excercise regularly and my weight and size hasn't really changed much in the last 10 years....i still keep up with the rest
For those who dont know your nick name what is it and why?
CHERRY RED RACHY is my nom de plume and it is derived from my striking hair colour i sport and one of my favourite handbags which has some fetching sequinned cherries:))
please do come and find me,am on all major networking sites but my main fan page is on face book just search-CHERRY RED RACHY
