A British model's social media rant on the impossible standards the fashion industry sometimes imposes has inspired her to start the #morethananumber campaign.
About a month ago, Charli Howard got a lot of attention after her facebook post said her agency dropped her because at 5 feet 8 inches and 105 pounds because she was "too big."
Howard has since signed with a new "supportive" agency and is encouraging young ladies and women to join the #morethananumber campaign. The idea is to spread the message that there is no 'one size fits all' and what young people see in magazines and on TV is often not a true reflection of reality.
Rather than how much we weigh or the size of our clothes, Howard told StyleCaster magazine; "Maybe it’s the date you passed an important exam or the number of pets you have or the number of close friends you’ve got... It’s not about what you look like; it’s about you as a person.”
Bravo Charli Howard! Bravo!
