“I work internationally and you see so many different body types and people of different ages. I’ve had a really positive experience of it.”
The fashion blogger is headed to New York and admitted they are great at featuring curvier models.
“New York Fashion Week is quite ahead of the game in that regard,” she told the Irish Sun.
“Last season, a lot more designers incorporated curvier models into their shows. I’m excited to see if more follow suit this year.

“It’s so positive in so many ways so it ticked all the boxes for what I’m trying to do with my blog too.”
