Plan: My paper should consist of three parts: the introduction where I will introduce why fashion is something I am passionate about and my stance on the issue, the body paragraphs where my research will support my argument, and the ending where I conclude by sending a message to young girls.
Working Thesis: The fashion industry needs to allow for a broader range of female body types in order to preserve the healthy body image of women in general.
Supporting evidence: During my research, I found an interesting article from New York Magazine has listed the 7-day diaries of four people in the fashion industry: two models (a male and a female), fashion editor, and producer. I plan to use evidence from this article in my introduction to show introduce what the fashion industry is portraying as “beautiful”. Another article I found particularly interesting was a blog written by a former model that once used extreme measures to fit the typical model physique. She then turned her life around by embracing her womanly curves. I plan to use this in my conclusion to support my overall message; woman of all body types should be allowed to participate in the fashion industry to avoid them negatively altering their bodies.
