-You get a fantastic buzz

-from living a double life.

0:00:030:00:06

-A very, very dangerous man.

0:00:070:00:09

-Nothing to say?

0:00:110:00:13

-It's so sad.

0:00:150:00:16

-A real eye-opener.

0:00:190:00:20

-Tonight, the fashion industry

-and the pressure to be slim.

0:00:330:00:39

-I spend time

-at the London Fashion Week...

0:00:390:00:42

-..and meet models

-of all shapes and sizes.

0:00:420:00:45

-Then I head to Paris...

0:00:460:00:47

-..where they are trying

-to phase out size zero models.

0:00:480:00:52

-London Fashion Week

-takes place twice a year.

0:01:030:01:07

-Over 250 designers get a chance

-to show their clothes...

0:01:070:01:11

-..to fashion fans, fellow designers

-and the influential press.

0:01:120:01:16

-I'm in London's Holborn to meet

-Hannah-Beth, a model from Llanelli.

0:01:180:01:23

-She's in the city

-for London Fashion Week.

0:01:230:01:26

-Carmarthen designer

-Jayne Pierson has a fashion show...

0:01:400:01:43

-..at the Conde Nast College

-of Fashion & Design.

0:01:440:01:46

-Hannah-Beth is one of the models.

0:01:470:01:49

-I can see the clothes there.

0:01:580:02:00

-A catwalk runway

-has been set up there.

0:02:010:02:04

-This is your stage!

0:02:050:02:06

-Hannah has been a model since 2010.

0:02:110:02:15

-She has done many catwalk shows

-and wedding dress shows.

0:02:150:02:20

-But it's her first chance

-to prove herself in London.

0:02:200:02:24

-Do you feel under pressure

-to conform to a certain look?

0:02:280:02:33

-It is an unfortunate part

-of the fashion industry.

0:02:340:02:38

-Because it's all about

-people's looks and image...

0:02:380:02:43

-..you are judged anyway.

0:02:440:02:46

-Jayne contacted Hannah

-to ask her to take part in the show.

0:02:480:02:53

-As a designer, she likes models

-similar to Hannah, who's a size 10.

0:02:530:02:58

-Jayne has been fantastic.

0:03:010:03:03

-She's also very supportive

-of that kind of life.

0:03:030:03:08

-It's not a matter of having to be

-size zero to be on the catwalk.

0:03:080:03:13

-The image of the fashion industry

-is that it's fairly cutthroat.

0:03:130:03:18

-Would you say that's fair?

0:03:180:03:20

-No, to be honest with you.

0:03:200:03:22

-The experiences I've had

-over the past three days...

0:03:220:03:27

-..have been very positive.

0:03:280:03:30

-No-one's been cruel, especially

-about my image or my look.

0:03:300:03:34

-While Hannah

-prepares for the big show...

0:03:380:03:43

-..I catch up

-with the designer, Jayne Pierson.

0:03:430:03:46

-When it comes

-to creating your pieces...

0:03:470:03:49

-...and looking

-at the models to wear them...

0:03:500:03:53

-..what do you look for

-in a casting, for example?

0:03:530:03:56

-I like to have a girl with a lot

-of charisma and presence...

0:03:560:04:01

-..and a beautiful, shapely physique

-that looks healthy and dynamic.

0:04:010:04:06

-When you design, you wouldn't

-design a piece that's a size zero?

0:04:060:04:10

-Absolutely not, no.

0:04:100:04:12

-Straight off the catwalk,

-it goes to the press office.

0:04:120:04:15

-And we have normal girls

-wearing our stuff.

0:04:150:04:18

-According to Jayne,

-the model agencies are to blame...

0:04:200:04:24

-..for sending models

-who are too thin.

0:04:250:04:27

-We get what we're given, and we

-select from the girls that show up.

0:04:290:04:34

-Sometimes, some of the girls

-are very, very thin...

0:04:350:04:38

-..in which case

-we don't confirm or cast them.

0:04:380:04:42

-Nobody wants to see a girl

-painfully thin, they just look ill.

0:04:420:04:47

-Looking at the models, they all look

-very different from one another.

0:04:560:05:01

-Having said that, they are thin.

0:05:010:05:03

-There's no escaping

-the truth of that.

0:05:030:05:06

-The clothes look interesting.

0:05:060:05:09

-Personally, I don't get them,

-but who am I to say anything?

0:05:100:05:14

-Here we are, the big moment.

0:05:230:05:27

-And a mere moment it was.

0:05:350:05:37

-After all the preparations,

-the show is over in ten minutes.

0:05:370:05:42

-How did you feel

-when you were on the runway?

0:05:430:05:47

-I was nervous.

-I didn't expect that many people.

0:05:470:05:50

-It's a tick on that bucket list.

0:05:510:05:55

-Really good.

0:05:550:05:56

-While I'm in London, I meet

-another model from West Wales...

0:05:580:06:03

-..trying to make a name for herself.

0:06:030:06:06

-Cira Sharp-Taylor

-is considered a plus size model.

0:06:060:06:10

-What does that mean

-for someone like her?

0:06:100:06:13

-She hails from Ceredigion...

0:06:140:06:16

-..but now lives in London

-and works as a full-time model.

0:06:160:06:20

-These were on Boohoo, were they?

0:06:300:06:31

-These were on Boohoo, were they?

-

-Yes, on Boohoo.

0:06:310:06:32

-Cira saw a competition

-on Instagram...

0:06:340:06:36

-..to win modelling work

-with online clothes retailer Boohoo.

0:06:370:06:41

-Over 66,000 people entered,

-but she won.

0:06:410:06:44

-Boohoo picked me up straight away

-and I did a photo shoot for them.

0:06:470:06:52

-Then I tried for an agency.

0:06:520:06:56

-The first one said no

-because I was too short.

0:06:560:07:00

-I then went to IMM,

-who signed me immediately.

0:07:010:07:06

-She now gets plenty of work

-through agency IMM as a curve model.

0:07:060:07:11

-She has also moved to London

-to secure full-time modelling work.

0:07:110:07:16

-What do you think

-of the label plus size model?

0:07:160:07:19

-I don't think

-that title should exist.

0:07:200:07:23

-It should be size zero

-through to what, size 26...

0:07:230:07:28

-..not the term plus size.

0:07:280:07:30

-This afternoon, I accompany Cira to

-her agency, IMM, to see her at work.

0:07:320:07:37

-We'll just go over your card

-and pictures and take measurements.

0:07:490:07:54

-We'll do Polaroids of you

-in your attire, then a small video.

0:07:540:07:58

-The agency has over 30 years'

-experience in the field...

0:07:580:08:02

-..and works with all kinds

-of men and women.

0:08:030:08:06

-What does your role entail exactly?

0:08:070:08:08

-What does your role entail exactly?

-

-I look after all the curve models.

0:08:080:08:11

-Size 10 plus.

0:08:110:08:13

-That's like, curve.

0:08:130:08:15

-It's not the natural model type

-that you see on the runway.

0:08:150:08:19

-It's girls that have

-a bit more to them.

0:08:190:08:22

-People want to see now

-what represents them.

0:08:230:08:25

-Campaigns that use people that are

-like real people of all ages.

0:08:260:08:30

-People will invest in that rather

-than people they'll never look like.

0:08:300:08:35

-What does Paige think

-about the size zero debate?

0:08:360:08:39

-Are the designers to blame, or the

-agencies, as Jayne Pierson said?

0:08:390:08:44

-I know designers blame the agencies

-for sending them size zero models.

0:08:450:08:50

-But you blame the designers.

0:08:510:08:53

-Who's at fault, is my question.

0:08:530:08:56

-I mean, I think, everyone.

0:08:560:08:58

-Rosalie Nelson

-has a massive petition...

0:08:590:09:02

-..after she was told

-to get to the bone.

0:09:030:09:05

-That's the agent's fault for telling

-these young people to lose weight.

0:09:050:09:10

-It's also the powerhouses

-and fashion people's fault.

0:09:100:09:14

-In a way, they don't want bigger

-models because of their samples.

0:09:140:09:19

-What they create,

-the budget and materials.

0:09:190:09:22

-There's blame

-in everyone's court, really.

0:09:220:09:25

-But some suffer long-term damage

-because of the pressure to be thin.

0:09:290:09:34

-I'm on my way

-to meet Nia Marshalsay-Thomas.

0:09:340:09:38

-She has been a model

-for ten years...

0:09:380:09:41

-..and recently returned to work

-after having a baby.

0:09:410:09:45

-Today, she's having some new photos

-taken for her portfolio.

0:09:450:09:49

-You're now a commercial model,

-but you have done catwalk work.

0:09:500:09:55

-What was that like?

0:09:550:09:56

-The catwalk stuff

-was fairly negative, really.

0:09:560:10:00

-I did a launch of wedding dresses.

0:10:000:10:04

-It was quite a big company...

0:10:040:10:06

-..so I was excited

-that they'd asked me.

0:10:060:10:09

-I went up there, got the train home

-and I was crying on the train.

0:10:090:10:13

-I just felt

-that I was the biggest girl there.

0:10:140:10:17

-I'm a size 10,

-which isn't big at all.

0:10:170:10:21

-But I felt massive there.

0:10:210:10:23

-You also got a message

-from someone telling you directly...

0:10:270:10:31

-..that you had to lose weight.

0:10:310:10:33

-Yes.

0:10:330:10:34

-I got a message on social media

-asking to represent me.

0:10:350:10:39

-I said yes, I was so excited

-and sent them my measurements.

0:10:390:10:45

-They were keen to represent me

-but I had to be a genuine size 8...

0:10:450:10:50

-..and lose this amount of weight.

0:10:500:10:52

-Because he told me that I'd succeed

-just by losing weight...

0:10:540:10:58

-..I felt I had to do it

-or never make it in this industry.

0:10:580:11:03

-Nia comes from Aberystwyth.

0:11:110:11:13

-She invited me to her home...

0:11:140:11:16

-..to talk more

-about the pressure to lose weight...

0:11:160:11:19

-..and how that

-drove her to extremes.

0:11:200:11:22

-I turned to laxative abuse,

-and took laxatives every day...

0:11:220:11:28

-..just to lose weight.

0:11:280:11:30

-Once my body

-had got used to taking one...

0:11:300:11:34

-..it didn't work any longer,

-so I'd take more and more.

0:11:340:11:38

-I lived at home at the time.

0:11:390:11:41

-I'd considered

-forcing myself to vomit and so on.

0:11:410:11:44

-But my family would have noticed.

0:11:440:11:47

-I could do this on the sly.

0:11:470:11:49

-Taking a tablet

-without anyone knowing.

0:11:490:11:52

-After her body

-became so used to laxatives...

0:11:530:11:56

-..she's now dependent on them

-to go to the toilet.

0:11:570:12:00

-Eventually,

-I had to go to the doctor.

0:12:020:12:05

-Now, I have to take prescription

-laxatives twice daily, every day.

0:12:050:12:10

-Have you got them?

0:12:100:12:11

-Have you got them?

-

-Yes, they're here.

0:12:110:12:13

-I just mix this up

-with water every day.

0:12:130:12:17

-It tastes horrendous.

0:12:180:12:20

-It says orange, but it doesn't

-taste anything like orange.

0:12:200:12:24

-You mix the powder with water...

0:12:240:12:27

-..twice a day.

0:12:270:12:28

-I caused this myself.

0:12:320:12:34

-It's my own fault.

0:12:360:12:37

-I had no idea that taking

-laxatives could be so harmful.

0:12:380:12:43

-Nia says that she faces this

-for the rest of her life.

0:12:430:12:47

-It's really embarrassing.

0:12:480:12:50

-Your body is totally amazing,

-it does everything for you.

0:12:500:12:55

-But I've broken my body, in a way...

0:12:550:12:58

-..by forcing it to work in a way

-it was never meant to function.

0:12:580:13:02

-I'm disappointed that I did it,

-really disappointed.

0:13:020:13:08

-Nia has now given up catwalk

-modelling for commercial work.

0:13:100:13:15

-She says that she feels

-more at home there.

0:13:160:13:19

-Once I found commercial agencies,

-I think I was happy.

0:13:200:13:26

-I used to not drink water.

0:13:260:13:28

-Since I've been with the commercial

-agencies, that's all gone.

0:13:290:13:33

-They've seen my photos

-and my measurements.

0:13:330:13:36

-They know exactly

-what they're getting.

0:13:360:13:39

-In part two, je vais a Paris,

-I go to Paris...

0:13:430:13:46

-..to look at the brave steps

-being taken...

0:13:460:13:49

-..to try to improve

-the fashion industry there.

-Paris - one of the capital cities

-of the fashion industry.

0:14:110:14:15

-Since last September,

-France has led the way...

0:14:160:14:20

-..in trying to improve

-conditions for models.

0:14:200:14:24

-I've come to Paris Fashion Week...

0:14:250:14:28

-..on a day when the fashion world

-in France faces a huge change.

0:14:280:14:33

-A new law has come into force...

0:14:330:14:36

-..requiring the phrase

-photographie retouchee...

0:14:360:14:40

-..to appear below any photograph

-that has been altered in anyway.

0:14:400:14:45

-Photoshopped photographs.

0:14:450:14:47

-The bill was passed in 2015...

0:14:480:14:51

-..alongside a law requiring models

-to show a medical certificate...

0:14:510:14:55

-..confirming they are healthy enough

-to work in the industry.

0:14:560:15:01

-That bill became law in May 2017.

0:15:010:15:03

-But two leading fashion industry

-groups have also introduced changes.

0:15:040:15:09

-LVMH and Kering

-own such big names...

0:15:090:15:12

-..as Alexander McQueen,

-Stella McCartney and Louis Vuitton.

0:15:120:15:17

-They have introduced a new charter

-banning the use of size zero models.

0:15:170:15:22

-I spend the afternoon

-with Parisian fashion fans...

0:15:290:15:32

-..outside one of the top shows

-to gauge their opinions.

0:15:330:15:37

-Tonight's Louis Vuitton show

-is in the pyramid itself.

0:15:450:15:50

-But I'm going to be outside,

-where people are now gathering...

0:15:500:15:54

-..to ask them about these changes

-to the fashion industry...

0:15:540:15:59

-..and its image here in France.

0:15:590:16:01

-What do you think

-of Kering and LVMH's new charter...

0:16:110:16:15

-..about models who are too thin?

0:16:150:16:18

-I think it's a good thing.

0:16:180:16:21

-It will create

-another image of fashion.

0:16:210:16:26

-The modelling world is hard anyway.

0:16:270:16:29

-This shows that fashion is starting

-to look at different bodies.

0:16:300:16:35

-It'll be an improvement.

0:16:360:16:37

-On the one hand, it's a good thing.

0:16:380:16:40

-It's not good for models to be thin.

-I have friends who are models.

0:16:410:16:45

-Apples are all they eat.

0:16:450:16:47

-But as for wearing clothes...

0:16:480:16:51

-..I totally agree

-they look better on thinner bodies.

0:16:510:16:55

-I'm now going to meet Rosie Nelson,

-a model currently working in Paris.

0:16:590:17:04

-Back in the UK, she's campaigning

-for a law and strict regulations...

0:17:040:17:09

-..to protect models

-from having to be too thin.

0:17:090:17:13

-I'm about to find out

-what exactly she does.

0:17:130:17:16

-Rosie moved to London

-from Australia aged 20...

0:17:240:17:28

-..to embark on a career as a model.

0:17:280:17:31

-I went to visit agencies,

-a typical thing that models do.

0:17:320:17:35

-A lot said I was either too fat

-or too old, when I was 20 years old.

0:17:350:17:39

-One particular agency

-said they'd like to take me on...

0:17:400:17:43

-..but that I had to lose

-a bit of weight.

0:17:430:17:46

-I lost weight for them,

-about 10 kilos or 20 pounds.

0:17:460:17:49

-I lost two inches

-around my hips and my waist.

0:17:490:17:53

-I went back and was told

-that I was making good progress.

0:17:530:17:57

-But they wanted me down to the bone.

0:17:570:17:59

-To think they could be

-asking that of girls or boys...

0:18:000:18:03

-..much younger than I am,

-it completely broke my heart.

0:18:030:18:07

-After that experience, Rosie

-started a petition in Britain...

0:18:080:18:13

-..for a law to protect models

-from having to be too thin.

0:18:130:18:17

-It now has

-almost 150,000 signatures.

0:18:170:18:20

-But the experience hasn't stopped

-her from working as a model.

0:18:220:18:26

-Being super thin

-isn't the way forward.

0:18:260:18:29

-The agency I'm with now has

-a healthier vision for the industry.

0:18:290:18:33

-I wish all the agencies

-would be like that.

0:18:330:18:35

-With her petition and the publicity

-for the French law...

0:18:350:18:39

-..she's confident that the fashion

-industry will change for the better.

0:18:390:18:44

-Without it, we're going the way

-of anorexia and eating disorders...

0:18:440:18:49

-..and promoting that as a luxurious

-way to be, and that's wrong.

0:18:490:18:53

-France has implemented

-their legislation.

0:18:540:18:56

-It'd be great for the UK to follow.

0:18:570:18:59

-But what about

-the designers of the future?

0:19:010:19:04

-Do they welcome such changes?

0:19:050:19:07

-I'm heading to

-the International Fashion Academy...

0:19:080:19:12

-..to meet Jean-Marc Chauve,

-its artistic director.

0:19:120:19:16

-I also hope to speak

-to some of his students.

0:19:160:19:19

-As the designers of the future...

0:19:190:19:21

-..I want to hear their opinions

-about these changes.

0:19:210:19:25

-What's your opinion

-of Kering and LVMH's charter?

0:19:400:19:44

-It's very interesting.

0:19:440:19:46

-Yes, it's fairly new and ambiguous.

0:19:460:19:49

-On a global level,

-it's a good thing...

0:19:490:19:52

-..because it bans sizes 4 and 6,

-which are both very thin.

0:19:520:19:57

-But what is a little awkward is that

-it lays down some kind of rules...

0:19:580:20:03

-..about what is normal

-for women and what isn't.

0:20:030:20:08

-There are young women

-with such figures naturally.

0:20:080:20:13

-We seem to be telling them they're

-not normal, which is awkward.

0:20:130:20:18

-Anorexia affects 30,000

-to 40,000 people in France...

0:20:200:20:24

-..with 90% of them female.

0:20:240:20:26

-But Jean-Marc feels

-that another problem...

0:20:260:20:29

-..causes more distress

-than anorexia.

0:20:290:20:32

-Anorexia is a serious problem...

0:20:330:20:36

-..but it affects far fewer people

-than obesity.

0:20:360:20:39

-We shouldn't distort

-our idea of beauty...

0:20:390:20:42

-..so that obesity is accepted,

-because we know how bad it is.

0:20:430:20:47

-Afterwards, he introduces me

-to some of his students.

0:20:480:20:51

-But are they glad to see

-the fashion industry changing?

0:20:520:20:55

-What do you think of the charter?

0:21:060:21:09

-Is it a good idea or not?

0:21:090:21:10

-I think it's a good idea because

-most models are in their teens.

0:21:110:21:15

-I don't think they should

-be forced to be too thin...

0:21:160:21:20

-..or to be a particular size.

0:21:200:21:22

-I think it's a good thing...

0:21:230:21:25

-..because many young girls

-want to look like models.

0:21:260:21:30

-They forget that it's unnatural.

0:21:300:21:32

-It's not attractive to be too thin.

0:21:330:21:35

-But do the Welsh models want

-to see these changes in Britain?

0:21:380:21:44

-Would you welcome

-similar rules in Britain?

0:21:470:21:51

-What do you think?

0:21:510:21:53

-What do you think?

-

-No, I don't think so.

0:21:530:21:55

-Some girls

-are naturally "size zero".

0:21:550:21:58

-Others, like me,

-are a natural size 12.

0:21:580:22:02

-Those girls

-can't do anything about it.

0:22:020:22:05

-I could never go to a size zero.

0:22:060:22:08

-It wouldn't be natural for my body.

0:22:080:22:10

-Is it good to see

-these leading fashion houses...

0:22:160:22:21

-..taking steps

-to improve the situation?

0:22:210:22:24

-It's good that they are,

-but everyone needs to do it.

0:22:250:22:28

-A couple may have done this...

0:22:280:22:30

-..but some still strongly believe

-in using very thin models.

0:22:310:22:35

-There is still pressure to be

-perfect in the fashion industry.

0:22:380:22:43

-Models need to look good

-to sell the clothes.

0:22:430:22:46

-But what is that ideal image?

0:22:500:22:52

-What's important for Nia is that

-models are happy with their bodies.

0:22:540:22:59

-Knowing what you know now...

0:23:020:23:04

-..and having been through

-what you have...

0:23:040:23:08

-..what would you tell

-the younger Nia?

0:23:080:23:11

-I'd tell her that she was stupid

-to even consider doing what I did.

0:23:120:23:16

-I've destroyed my body, in a way.

0:23:160:23:19

-You must be happy in your own skin,

-because you are who you are.

0:23:190:23:24

-I've realized that now.

0:23:240:23:26

-It's unfortunate and disappointing

-that it took me so long...

0:23:270:23:31

-..that I can find work

-and be happy as I am.
