Our cover model spoke with PMM Editor-in-Chief Madeline Jones in an exclusive interview where she talks about the challenges she has faced when she first began modeling, tips on how to handle rejection and be positive in the modeling industry, how she feels about the term “plus size”, and much more. Desiree’s interview can be found here. (pages 90-95)

She’s also featured in the 10-page For The Love of Prints fashion editorial that is all about the hot “mixing prints” trend this season (pgs 78-87).
