Today marks my radio debut – OK, it’s not National, not even Regional – just local, but it’s a start! It’s all around my Blog post before Christmas when I mentioned that H&M were using computer-generated bodies of models – not that they were Photoshopping and enhancing real bodies, but that they’d “built” a model and then change the face, skin tone etc. to display different items of clothing!
That post led to a bit of an uproar locally, and several Business Mums got in touch, wanting to publicise how the “obsession” with figures places huge pressure on youngsters these day, and the damage that this causes to their self-esteem and even their mental health. As a result, we did a photoshoot in Bournemouth with “real women”, and today’s radio slot gives us the chance to talk not only about the shoot but also about the impact that the fashion industry’s behaviour has on the the public today.
So, a quick post on a BIG subject, and it’s off to the radio station I go! 🙂
