I first met Angel just over a year now when I attended a Models of Diversity Fashion show as a VIP guest in London. Being in the Fashion Industry and a Top Hat Designer to the Rich & Famous it is important for me to attend these events.

I was overwhelmed when I saw how hard these models worked and their drive was very emotional. They put on a great show and it was very refreshing to not see the stereotypical model. I was approached by Angel to work with her at the Oxford Fashion Week this year where I was to provide my Hats for the event which I did without a blink. It was a great event, the passion the Models have shines straight through and it's amazing to see. I then also worked with Angel on another Fashion show this year and again provided my hats to the Models, once again another successful event.

Angel is trying to change the way we see models and I cannot stand by her enough to help her make this happen. I have seen for myself what this is about and it would be great to get the stereotypical models changed to allow all and every size, colour and disability live their dreams and not be alienated as they are today!

I look forward to working with Angel again on her next event and will continue to support her.

As a Fashion Designer based in Brighton my work takes me all around, giving me the pleasure of working with women of all colours, shapes and sizes. I was very honored to be asked by Angel Sinclair to support Models of Diversity, first for the Fashion Show at The Millennium Hotel Knightsbridge London and then for the Tree Of Hope Childrenís Charity Styled & Frocked fashion show held at Ju Ju Kings Road London, on both occasion dressing both the plus and the petite size models.

The models were all beautiful, they came in all different sizes which was amazing. I love the fact you also have models that have a disability. Models Of Diversity gives all types of people a chance to show how beautiful they are whether they are tall, short or plus sized.

I wish the company the very best for the future and I would definitely use Models of Diversity to model my clothes in the near future. It was a positive experience to work with Models of Diversity. All the models were beautiful; they were punctual and were keen to please. As a designer and dressmaker my customer comes in all shapes and sizes so it is a delight to work with one of the few model agencies that both recognize and celebrate this diversity.

Angel Sinclair's organisational skills and relationship to the models played a great part which helped to make their shows successful. I would most certainly work with and support Angel withthout hesitation.

I really love what Models of Diversity is doing to help change our society's notion of Beauty.

I fully support their efforts to make positive change which in turn helps the millions of people who can't live up to the current exceedingly unattainable beauty ethic.
 
Rock on!

I came across Angel and the campaign of Models of Diversity less than a year ago and from the first sentence I read about them I became a huge admirer of their work.

As a Fashion Designer, I know how important it is to promote diversity in the fashion world. For so many years we have been fed up with the 'perfect' look of a girl which leads to size zero models, which we all know is wrong but difficult to stop. Models of Diversity promotes, teaches and shows the truth of what's behind the 'perfect' look. To me it is important when I work on shows and shoots that I can connect with the models and that when I work with them we can have fun while creating pretty images. I worked with them on the latest show I did in London and I never before came across so many nice people.

Models of Diversity are not afraid of showing their views and sharing them with the public! I can only wish Models of Diversity more and more success and I can not wait for another show with them.

Hi Angel

Congratulations on a fabulous campaign!

Models of Diversity are a perfect example of that beauty goes further than perfectly thin shape and tallness. What counts is our courage to go out and show ourselves to the whole world, despite us not having the stereotypical, "perfect" shape and figure. I think, that what counts is the twinkle in your eye, happiness and full acceptance of who you are. If you love yourself, you will become loved by everyone around you. It doesn't matter if we're using the wheelchairs, if we're tall, short.

Models of Diversity gives people happiness and makes their dreams come true, the biggest ones of them. I use the wheelchair myself, and Models of Diversity is the only agency that can make my dreams come true and the dreams of many other girls who are not fully physically able. It allows to become a professional model. I respect you, the agencies, for looking for possibilities within the limits and not limits within possibilities, and I value that you become more open to the whole world around you.

I'm impressed.

Keep it going!

I was very grateful to support Models of Diversity for the tree of hope fashion show with my jewellery.

The models were all beautiful they came in all different sizes which was amazing. I love the fact you also have models that have a disability. Your company gives all types of people a chance to show how beautiful they are whether they are tall, short or plus sized.

I wish the company the very best for the future and I will use models of diversity to model my jewellery and clothes in the near future. Thank very much for having me take part at the show.

Best regards

Many years ago I started the Black BUT Invisible campaign which aimed to redress the imbalances within the British fashion industry and it is with such pride that I see that Angel and her team at Models of Diversity have taken on the mantle and taken the campaign to even higher and greater level.

They have made sure that the plight of diverse models in the UK is constantly in the public eye and this has led to well known stars, celebrities and fashion industry greats joining the Models of Diversity campaign and this in turn has led to some significant changes within the fashion industry. I and everyone at Mahogany Models applauds the great work that Angel and her team are doing.
