You say ‘model’ and you think of a diet. Raw carrots, no oil, no fats, don’t even mention sugar. In short: endless sadness. Those who walk the catwalk don’t even step into the kitchen. To better understand this phenomenon, Vogue Italia interviewed two super models that, with their ideas, are revolutionizing the concept of Fashion & Food. Their names are Anne Marie van Dijk, from the Netherlands and Australian Robyn Lawley. Read the whole interview on Vogue Italia!
One of the questions:
SOMETIMES IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT MODELS EAT EVERYTHING. HOW IS THE “RELATIONSHIP” BETWEEN FOOD AND THE FASHION WORLD? HARD, EASY ETC…
Anne Marie van Dijk: “That’s an excellent question. Any profession that focuses on the physical body as a tool or medium, will increase a person’s awareness and sensibility around food. That is why I believe it is so important to offer models a support system that is uniquely tailored to them. The industry comes with its own set of challenges and expectations, just like with any other profession. Without the right guidance and set of tools, it can be difficult for models to maintain a working weight in a healthy way”.
Robyn Lawley: “Food and fashion in my opinion mix incredibly well as food has trends like fashion, and most designers, models, stylists etc love restaurants and good quality food. At 90% of my shoots there always is amazing food to eat on set”.
