Katie Halchishick Healthy is the New Skinny

Healthy is the New Skinny is all about promoting a healthy body image in the fashion industry from the inside. They focus on what they call “natural models,” or models that look like real women. Their website is full of stories from women who’ve risen above the culture of the fashion industry.

We’re bombarded every day with images of the ideal woman, and so often she’s emaciated and weak. It’s always refreshing to run across women who are taking a stand against this unhealthy ideal, and plus-size dresses model Katie Halchishick is doing just that with her new project Healthy is the New Skinny. This video gives you a bit more information about what the project is trying to do:

  • It’s time to develop inner beauty, authenticity, intelligence and intuition and to place a higher value on that than on surface qualities. Women give away their power by buying into the airbrushed/photoshopped/plastic surgery mythic image of perfection.

  • How refreshing. It takes a very strong sense of self to love myself in the presence of so much media that wants me to compare myself to a ‘perfect’ that I can never achieve. Loving myself as I am continues to be a life challenge. The consumer industry plays so hard at creating a sense of personal inadequacy and insecurity in order to sell it’s ‘solutions’.
