Two front covers for Dutch Magazine Yes! And more than 25 appearances in Australian Cosmopolitan Magazine.
Natalie has been at the forefront of promoting diversity and acceptance within the fashion community for 16 years.
In 2006, Natalie’s frustrations at not being able to find luxurious, on-trend fashion labels that fit her curves led her to start designing her own
plus-size fashion line, EMBODY DENIM by Natalie Wakeling.
With a focus on exceptional fabrics and an eye for flattering cuts for the size 14-22 markets, Embody Denim has become one of Australia’s leading independent plus-size labels, and is set for expansion in 2016.
Wakeling says, and have worn my fair share of unflattering jeans and felt there was a definite gap in the Australian market for styles and colours that I didn't feel embarrassed to wear. I was tired of having to settle for unattractive plus-size jeans when I knew I could design something special that could make fashion-starved, curvy women feel fabulous.”
Embody Denim is sold through The Iconic and on http://www.embodydenim.com.au
Natalie regularly contributes to websites and panels as a resident ‘curvy- style expert” to the growing plus size

Yazemeenah Rossi has famously redefined the age limit for being a ‘sex symbol’.

The French-born beauty started going grey in her teens, but didn’t let that stop her launching a career as a model at 28. Her career exploded internationally at the age of 45 when she made the move to NYC represented by Ford.

Since then, with internationally publicised campaigns such as 'that' white swimsuit for Land of Women x the Dreslyn, Yazemeenah
has attracted plenty of labels, from ‘hot grandma’ to ‘senior sex symbol’. Not one for labels, she thinks of herself more as a 'free sprit'.

Her lingerie shots sparked a global conversation about beauty and the conventions of fashion marketing.
Jacky stepped up to the plate and spoke out as an age-positive advocate. She's since bared all in the name of helping women improve their body image. Jacky says - “The fear of ageing needs to be put in its place, and one way to do that is to visually embrace the process."
“It’s very freeing to say this is my body, this is what it is. It may not be perfect, whatever that is, and I’ve got the odd bulge like anyone else, but it no longer matters. It is time to love, accept and enjoy your body unconditionally.”
6”0 and striking - Jacky is a runway regular and recently walked for TOME at NYFW. With her strong voice in the industry, she's a media favorite and has been featured by SMH, The Independent, Women's Fitness and Elle amongst others

Alana is 40 and fabulous. She's also one relatable beauty. Living with type 1 diabetes Alana shares her ups and downs via her blog, "Enlightened Diabetic"

In Alana's words:

​"My pancreas gave up the ghost in 1997. The rest of me lives on, picking up the slack with the help of multiple daily insulin injections and blood glucose monitoring. In the absence of insulin injections, I’d have only a few days to live. In other words, if it weren’t for modern medicine, I would have left this lovely planet at the age of 21.

That is what it means to have type one diabetes and this is me making the most of my extra years. Sometimes feeling a little bit sorry for myself but mostly overwhelmingly grateful for the extra time"
