What they are saying about the future of petite models in the fashion industry.
The truth about height in professional modeling… When I began breaking into the modeling industry, I constantly was told, “you need to be taller for fashion.” Since then I’ve produced hundreds of events with petite models. I have heard thousands of women say they want to be models, but they were under 5’5″ tall. Significantly short of the industry standard. Unless, you’re 5’6″ Kate Moss a friend of the agency and you’re taken on as a pet project, forget about it!
The hypocrisy is that clothing designers feel their clothes look better when draped on a tall woman’s frame, as they are considered clothing hangers. Reality is designers should be designing clothing that looks great on a petite frame since the average size female in the US at 5’5″ and under. Clothing should be designed with petite fit models and not models that are 5’8″ plus.
Interesting statistic: Women 5’9″ tall and over only represent 3% of US females, translation designer missed there mark!
Another note, it’s an insult that petite models are treated like car parts! The idea that we petites should be relegated to “body part modeling,” for hands, feet, butts because we’re not good enough as whole model is a joke. Oh, but it’s not surprise we can do porn and swimsuit modeling and rock it!
According to many mens magazines and a few scientific studies about what men prefer in a woman they conclude that tall women don’t have the curves and lack femininity.
The plain truth is at this rate petite ,ofe;s]]]]]]]] never become super model covergirls, product print or fashion editorial models because petite women have lack confidence to challenge the fashion standards and shoot done the .
Look hopeful petite models, of course it’s not fair and it’s down right discrimination by the designers, retailers, advertising agencies and the modeling agencies. This is the big business of fashion and public relations so we need to band to together in a concerted effort to show them this is what the petite womens marketplace wants!
