PMM Follows 3 Models For One Year - The Project!, 1/01/2011

by Mia Amber Davis

In January 2010, Madeline Figueroa-Jones and I started a dialog to discuss how we could directly make an impact on the plus modeling industry. 

As PLUS Model Magazines  Editor-in-Chief and Creative-Editor-At-Large respectively, Maddy and I often juggle inquiries from aspiring models wanting to know the fastest, easiest way into the industry and the quickest way to the top.

We also receive more constant, in depth questions about the ins and outs of the industry.

We wanted to find a way to show, and tell aspiring models, how to go about forging ahead in the industry while laying foundations for a great career.

The best way we thought to teach this was by letting our readers experience it through the eyes of actual models beginning their respective journeys.

Hence, "The Project" was born.

Meet Teslyn Butler, Allison McGevna and Stacey Heitt; three beautiful, full figured models bursting with confidence, grace, personality, and the drive to really get started in the plus size fashion industry.

All three women were already in various stages of modeling careers, but we felt if they had the right information as well as renewed focus they could make leaps and bounds and be great examples of hard work and dedication being the only way to the proverbial top of an industry on the cusp of a revolution.

Admittedly, due to the constant demands of the industry and daily life "The Project" hit a few bumps along the road.  There were missed deadlines, time lines disappeared, and there became little that we could guarantee for the ladies involved—but alas, the momentum never stopped.

We are beyond proud of the strides each model has taken as we've watched them blossom in front of the camera.  Also, as business women we marvel at the control they have each taken over their individual careers.

Thank you ladies for working with us and sharing your dreams. The sky is the limit for you and your careers in the plus modeling industry.

Please read on as the ladies tell their stories of their past year within, The Project.
