I went to the casting and they liked me so they booked me - pretty much how all models get work

I was invited along to Oasis HQ last week to celebrate the launch of their shiny new Argyll Street store and preview the fantastic Christmas collection.
After the obligatory bubbly and cupcakes, the inevitable 'trying-on' happened - and Grazia's Style Hunter was on hand to snap our combinations. I went for a sequinned gold mini (definitely got my eye on that one for party season!) and a gorgeous coral maxi-mini hybrid. Other key pieces included a leather blazer and Chanel-esque tweed short-suit among other great dresses, coats and separates.
A new Oasis fan here!

Not only did I get to strut my stuff to 'Run the World' (SO MAJOR) , but I got to meet the woman herself, and her mum, Tina. They are both incredibly inspiring, powerful women and I've fallen even more in love with them because of how genuinely down-to-earth they both are.
Got love for team Deréon.

My luck's been up recently, I've written for The Telegraph and I-D magazine in the space of just a few weeks- they're only short online articles but it's all a bit overwhelming...
A couple of years ago I was saying that I'd love to write for I-D magazine "when I was older", and I've done it (BOOM!)
In other news I've also shot with Rankin recently, (yes, THE Rankin) and will be featured in his new book which everyone is *hoping* will be out in October. I've seen the chosen shot and I absolutely love it, so look out for me!

is daniel browne agency a scam? they asked me to pay 500 pounds for a portfolio? do you know anything/or have heard about this agency?
DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY MONEY! THIS IS A SCAM. NO LEGIT AGENCY WILL EVER ASK YOU FOR MONEY UPFRONT, EVER, PERIOD, FULL STOP. I cannot stress this enough, no matter how bad you want to model or how good the deal seems, run a mile .
I'm looking for a fashion based work experience, preferably at a modelling agency, do you have any advice about how I could begin my search or just general advice on a fashion based work experience? Thanks so much :)
email email email! Write yourself a good cover letter, and do a CV tailored to the kind of work you're applying for, and send them to all the agencies you can. Also twitter is becoming increasingly used for business, put out a few tweets send them to a few good contacts and you might be surprised. They don't usually list things at modelling agencies on here, but LCF creative careers is an amazing website with listings of internships/jobs in the fashion world http://www.arts.ac.uk/student/careers/creative-opportunities.htm As for advice I'd say be prepared to start at the bottom and no matter how shit the job seems at first, putting the effort in will pay off eventually xx

I love your blog, but can't help thinking surely the bad outweighs the good of the fashion industry? The mass pressure it exerts on woman to look 'perfect' and be 'thin' is without a doubt the main reason why anorexia and bulimia are so common.
Firstly, thank you (: But I disagree. I find it hard to get my opinions on this across but I'll word this as best I can... Of course there are negatives, and we all know that 'thin' is portrayed as being beautiful in high fashion but I think the problem(s) don't initially stem from the fashion industry at all. Most eating disorders aren't about wanting to be thin at all, the weight loss is more of a by-product of wanting to control something in their lives and what you eat is one of the few things you can have full control over. Yes, the industry might act as a trigger but we need to STOP BLAMING IT OUTRIGHT. Think about it, if someone's willing to let a photograph, (a photograph which has probably used the most flattering camera angles possible and been edited heavily in post-production) 'get' to them or dictate how they should look then is the *real* issue what's in the photograph or people's own attitudes?

I was recently asked to take part in an interview for part of Fashion Targets Breast Cancer's 'Fashion Is' campaign. And here it is! I don't sound too stupid, score! Enjoy and be sure to check out the rest of the interviews, there are plenty of bloggers and other fashion folk giving their views.
