The call for curvy: plus size model search reopens

If the adage that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes is overused, it’s only with good reason: never a truer thing was said. Even so, few luxury brands are willing to take the leap and embrace the fact.

Simone Perele lingerie are an exception. Last year they launched their annual “Curvy Couture Model Search” in partnership with leading plus size model agency, BGM, and it proved a huge success. Winner, 21 year old Cregan McDermott, went on to model for the likes of David Jones and The Iconic, as well as using her experience to run healthy body image workshops across Australian schools.

And today, the search begins again.

The competition calls for un-signed models between sizes 12 and 16 who embody the qualities of the ‘Simone Pérèle woman’; namely Femininity, Elegance, Confidence, and a Savoir Faire for fashion.

The winner of the competition will once again have the opportunity to model for Simone Pérèle in all lingerie work for 2014 and will become Pérèle’s official ‘Confidence Ambassador’, as well as being awarded a 2 year contract with BGM Models.

Entries are open now until 23rd September. For full details and to enter, head to Simone Perele’s Facebook page or the official site at

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
