Fashion Model Saffi Karina has started the UK’s first plus size model workshop called, Curve Project London. Karina has been able to transition in her modeling career by embracing her more mature figure and wants to teach other women how to become models for plus size brands. Her clients have included Speedo and Bravissimo.

Karina’s monthly class will include in-depth coaching, teaching participants with hair and makeup sessions, getting experience working with stylists, advice on photo shoots, taking runway lessons and casting tips.
Given that there is a sentiment in our culture for ‘normal’ sized women, Karina’s goal is to,” endorse a positive body image and act as a role model to young women who previously thought ‘thin’ was the only way to get a foot over the fashion threshold.”
Great idea! This looks like one woman who is taking matters into her own hands!
