It’s almost time to say thanks for the memories 2015, and today we’re just swimming with new beginnings for women who wear larger sizes.
Over in Moscow, there’s a new academy called “plus-size Model Academy,” the Straits Times reports. The founder, Dilyara Larina, is a real author and “plus-size” model. School is already in session, and they drop knowledge on the history of the modeling industry, hands-on training for sexy photoshoots, catwalk practice, and portfolio prep.
Dilyara Larina says, “I am tired of stereotypes… In fact I really want to inspire my friends, and people around me to see that a full figured woman can be beautiful, desirable and sexy.”
The school seems to operate on the same principles as Drake (thick gentlewomen only,) and bonus: there’s professional training for aspirational fashion bloggers as well LOL. The words of photographer Marina Salmanova give us hope for this academic institution. She said: “Because I am plus-size myself, I do understand this subject from the inside. I know how to photograph girls with appetising shapes. I can say this from my heart. What is the best camera angle, what is a better way for a girl to smile, from what distance to photograph her.”
Get a load of their photoshoots here.
