Karen Diamond is a director and head of Models 1 which is longest running Models Agency in the UK.
In this podcast episode, she speaks to diversity in modelling since ‘Me Too’ and ‘Black lives Matter’. Recent trends include a ‘curve’ section in the agency, models who are social influencers, older models who look their age, more black and brown models, and the demand for models to look like real people.
Karen also talks about how models are now more protected by the BFMA and are giving coaching support by The Be Well Collective.
Modelling is changing and evolving and Karen is working to move with these changing times and changing values.
