'Anti' Fashion Modeling Agency Is Doing Away With Outdated Beauty Standards

Fashion designers, and the fashion industry as a whole, have always had a healthy respect for the avant-garde, and couture houses in particular never stray far from their surreal muse when they design a new line.

But when it comes to models the fashion industry did away with diversity a long time ago, claiming "tall and super skinny, preferably with big shoulders" is the ideal look for fashion.

Thankfully the rules of fashion are changing once again, and modeling agencies are replacing the superclones of the past with interesting looking people of all sizes and from all walks of life.

The Anti-Agency is one of the forward thinking agencies who are doing away with this conformist attitude towards models, and when the UK-based agency opened their NYC branch they doubled their efforts to recruit fresh faces.

Now it's only a matter of time before other agencies see the Anti-Agency making a splash with their super diverse roster and follow suit, infusing the modeling industry with some much needed new blood.

I looked at all the photos of the "anti" fashion models. They are not so different from current model standards: predominantly young, light-skinned, symmetrical, very thin and photogenic. The only thing "edgy" are armpit hair, piercings and tattoos. The very last model photo shows a beautiful young woman with a curvy, average size body. She's the only slight variation from standard waif in the whole pack.

Trumping traditional beauty standards means people of all skin colors, age, body size and looks are styled and photographed in such a way that it brings out their individual beauty. That would be avant-garde.
