PLUS MODEL MAGAZINE BIG Fall fashion Issue - Page 18

letter from the editor madeline jones | editor-in-chief Celebrating Diversity... When designer Marla Wynne approached me about creating a model search that would include both missy and plus sizes, I had to really think about it. With our brand fully being focused on the plus size industry, would we be supported with an incentive like this? The answer was a resounding YES! From the moment the #everyBODYModelSearch was launched, we had an overwhelming response from women all across the United States. Our winners Marjorie Burnette and Meara Oberdieck are just two of thousands of model hopefuls who entered the contest. Our weekend with them was nothing short of fabulous as we shared stories about life, fashion and society’s pressure to be “perfect”. Along with a stunning fashion editorial featuring our cover models, we also have an extraordinary fashion editorial featuring model Esther Andersen as well as a celebration of fashion, bloggers and what’s to come for Fall 2016. Hope you enjoy! XOXO
