No Limits

New modeling agency welcomes all sizes

Beauty comes in all sizes, and a new NYC modeling agency is determined to not let the fashion industry ice out “fat” size 4s. Fashionista reports two former Ford plus-size agents have started Jag, the first modeling agency that doesn't specialize in a size range and instead tries to promote girls of all sizes. Typically, agencies represent either the “norm” of 0-2, or jump to plus-size representation (sizes 14-16). The company's 30-model roster is focused in the plus-size range, but “there are 10s and there are 18s and if there’s a size 8 or a size 6 that we fall in love with we’ll take them on,” said co-founder Gary Dakin. “We’re not going to limit ourselves, because the industry shouldn’t be limiting to anybody.”
