UK-based retailer Missguided recently stopped retouching its models’ photos in a move that speaks to the cultural shift happening in the fashion and modeling industries. Twitter user Marnie Polk was the one to point out the news, referencing a screenshot of a model with stretch marks from the site. For years airbrushing has been a significant part of pushing a false agenda of perfectly sculpted bodies.
This statement is a step in the right direction for the global brand as companies and designers continue to transition into a period of true inclusivity and diversity.
