SLiNK Magazine - "Styling Your Curves And Fashioning Your Life"

Yet another niche has been formed in the market for the curvier girl. SLiNK the magazine solely dediated to what industry calls the plus size woman, has now been published. Rivkie Baum the lady responsible for the publication, aims to promote deiversity in fashion, in ethic as well as on their front cover.

SLiNK features the top news in fashion diversity as it happens, from Crystal Renn to most recently TOWIE star Gemma Collins. Editor Rivkie Baum says, "I loved the Evans teenage range, which I wish they would bring back, but mostly it was so hard, so frustrating,’ she says. ‘I would scour Camden Market looking for clothes that were big enough".

The publication has banned models below a UK size 10. Baum says that SLiNK is aspirational and not a "warts and all" publication. "Of course a curvaceous woman should not be excluded from the mainstream glossies for advice on how to find a perfect size 22 leather jacket" says Baum.

In an industry there there is such thing as 'thinspiration', one can only wonder where to find balance. SLiNK is accessible and inspirational, plus with an online as well as print magazine, it's never more than a click away.
