The writer Kenya Hunt (Metro World News In London) interviewed industry insider Gary Dakin (Crystal Renn's agent)
Excerpt from the article:
Since September, Gary Dakin, head of Ford Models Ford + Division, has also received more requests than usual for his models. Gary says: "We have seen spikes in interest. But this year has by far been the biggest one," he says.
According to the article: Dakin thinks that the term plus size is a huge part of the problem that prevented women like Renn and Atwell from booking jobs. He goes on to say, "We have got to get rid of this label. Women who are size 16 don't necessarily view themselves in the same category as women who are a size 28. If we eliminate the label, problem solved."
