It can be said without a doubt that we are in a decade where people are not afraid of change. People are more open to challenging the norm and breaking the stereotypes. One industry that we are extremely familiar with, which focuses way too much attention on looks and body size, is the fashion industry. Tall and skinny is the image we conjure in our heads when we think of a fashion model. However, in the past few years, slowly but steadily, things have started to change. Plus-sized models, models of different ethnicities and models of color are on the rise and are challenging the age-old norms.
