ABOUT RR

RunwayRevolution.com is a not-for-profit archive of images, videos, etc. showing larger (typically called plus-size) models, and presented for critique and comment under “Fair Use” law to anyone seeking to expand their aesthetic sensibilities concerning beauty and size, and to the general reader who needs a break from the images in the media that completely disconnect with how the statistical majority of women’s bodies look in real life.

My aim is simply to present an alternative – an antidote, of sorts – to what we are constantly told is the ‘ideal size’ via magazines, television and film. I believe that it is in the interests of women to see a variety of sizes and body shapes represented, and this website is my way of celebrating the work of people who share that philosophy.

This site is not going to contain _everything_, because that is too hard for one person to do.  Instead, it concentrates on those things that are an advancement in effort over those that came before.  There won’t be every job of a particular model on here, nor every campaign from a brand, or every editorial released from a particular magazine. What you will find are concepts that are newer and better : of-the-moment, groundbreaking, well-considered and with truly beautiful execution.  

I’d also like to say that this site doesn’t hope to be all things to all people. It’s a simple library of published works; it’s not intended to be a size acceptance site or a comment on the modelling industry – there are plenty of people handling that side of things very capably already!

Over the past 20 years there has been a wealth of beautiful imagery, videos and other marketing ephemera created showing models over a size 10.   It is the sole mission of RunwayRevolution.com to capture and provide a permanent home for as much relevant material as can be found.  RunwayRevolution.com is the ONLY online resource providing this wealth of material in a dated and highly cross-referenced manner, complete with photographer credits.  This site offers, wherever possible, complete series of editorials and advertising campaigns without prejudice to brand, model or concept.

RunwayRevolution.com will eventually house the largest and most complete collection of MODE magazine material online.  For this, I do need some assistance in locating all issues, so if you happen to have complete issues in great condition I’d love to hear from you!
