SKORCH May 2017 - Page 203

BACKGROUND INFO (TELL ME A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF) I’m a mum, wife and curve model that wants to break down barriers with age diversity. I’m someone who has an eye for fashion and do not want to be categorised by my size and age. I want to see more beautiful curvy 40+ 50+ women in the industry as there is plenty of us out there! HIGHLIGHTS OF MFW+ (MEETING PEOPLE ETC) Highlights was obviously getting chosen and meeting some impressive strong and beautiful women. It was also such an amazing atmosphere, I felt incredibly supported and safe. IT CAN BE PRETTY DAUNTING TO WALK IN A SHOW, WHAT HELPED YOU GET THROUGH BEING NERVOUS Yes it is quite daunting on the catwalk but just before my audition Natalie Wakling (plus size model) posted on mfwplus site “good luck ladies at your audition and remember your eyes are like laser beams!” and that’s exactly what I did. I got some great feedback from my audition.. Skorch I want to see more beautiful curvy 40+ 50+ women in the industry as there is plenty of us out there SKORCH ARE LOVING RITA’S PASSION ADVOCATING AGE AND BODY DIVERSITY.
