Lisa Scott Dishes on the Biggest Changes to the Plus-Size Industry, Size-ism + How to Get Involved (At Any Age)!

Published

on

Lisa Scott shares the biggest changes to the plus-size industry and how you can still be a part of the industry at any age. 

I began my Ageless Style features a few years back when I realized that our industry was growing older but many of us were no longer being featured as often. Lisa appeared with me in our very first groundbreaking feature!

Since then, many mature models and influencers are working side-by-side with their younger counterparts in campaigns, modeling projects, and social media content.  The brands have been so incredibly supportive of working with visibly mature talent and we want to see more…  

Lisa Scott was there in the very beginning, before social media and zoom castings.

She remembers the fashions, the agencies, and how truly groundbreaking it was to be a plus-size model in an industry that was very much reluctant to embrace size diversity in the modeling and fashion industry.

1-Lisa Scott Dishes on the Biggest Changes to the Plus-Size Industry + How to Get Involved Now

It’s amazing how the plus-size industry has changed in the last 30 years. Can you tell us how you got started in the industry?

I had never heard of a “Plus Model” and it was my Mom that had seen an ad in the New York Daily News. I remember like yesterday when she walked into my bedroom, handed me the newspaper, and said this would be good for you. 

I went on that open call advertised in that newspaper. Luckily it was a legitimate advertisement. Big Beauties Agency was looking for models size 12-20. Big Beauties was one of 3 agencies specializing in plus-size women in the late 80s-90s. I was 16 years old, adventurous, and had no fear… basically, I was too dumb to realize answering a random newspaper ad could have been dangerous. (Please don’t answer ads in newspapers, ladies, most of them are frauds and scams. )

Big Beauties turned me down after the owner Mary Duffy took my measurements. Ironically many years later Mary became one of my bookers at Ford Models. At the time I was a size 12-14. From that casting, I learned about another agency called “Plus Models” owned by Pat Swift. Plus Models Agency was a boutique agency and had a small roster of women that worked out wonderfully for a newbie like me. The owner was very hands-on and would give classes every week after hours at her agency. She taught us how to prep and present ourselves for potential jobs. What a model bag should look like. No long nails, nude polish, light makeup. Essential items we would need as a model in our Model Bags like undergarments, etc. That preparation and teaching is the reason I had longevity in the modeling industry.

At that time ethnic hairstyles weren’t encouraged. I actually was sent home from a booking with a black publication because I had box braids. 

My Booker at Plus Models, Susan Georget, was incredible at developing talent. She later went on to run the Wilhelmina 10/20 division. Susan would sit with me and tediously go through every slide of my test photoshoot on a slide machine. She would tell me what poses worked for me. That one-on-one was invaluable to my success as a model.

2-Lisa Scott Dishes on the Biggest Changes to the Plus-Size Industry + How to Get Involved Now

As a pioneer in the plus-size modeling industry, can you offer tips about developing your modeling style and flow in front of the camera?

For me “testing” was my saving grace for learning to be in front of a camera. (Testing means: Shooting with photographers) 

I needed to look at the film and critique myself. This helped me learn many things like what position to hold my head, my best profile, how I could make my legs look longer, and how to work with my hands. 

It’s amazing that we are now in an era where aspiring models can practice getting comfortable with the camera in their home with a tripod and cell phone.

Trying different angles and poses before a test with a professional photographer is helpful. The better prepared a model is the more likely she will have more good shots to choose from. I didn’t have the access to do this in my day; instead, I spent a ton of money testing with different photographers trying to learn my body and angles. I don’t regret one penny I invested in my career, rather it was a good or bad test where I didn’t get one usable picture. Testing helped me get comfortable in front of the camera and helped build my confidence.

Back then clients would pick up the phone and tell your agent you nailed the job or you were terrible. 

Do you have any examples where your experience and confidence helped your career?

Let me tell you about one job in particular. A husband and wife team who shot for Ames Circulars booked me. The wife was the stylist and the husband was the photographer. I was booked to meet them in a location in Central Park and I got so lost in the park I was at least an hour late. They were getting ready to pack up and leave when I got there. I hurriedly got in my outfit and started posing away. We got the shot in about 10 minutes. Afterward, the photographer told me “you’re lucky you are good”. I went on to work with them for many years.

This is why I know how important it is to have experience in front of a camera. A model has to be completely comfortable to put out good work. There will be times you will get hired to do a job where you absolutely think the clothing is hideous and not your style. Especially today where models are ‘Brands’ not just models. What they attach their image to is important to them.

As a professional, I suggest completing the job and afterward discuss with your agent your reasons for declining such future bookings. That way it will be a clear understanding with your agency what direction you want to go. 

Can you talk about size-ism in the plus-size modeling industry?

At the beginning of my career, I was booked with a magazine. The stylist hired pulled beautiful clothes for my size 16 frame, but most were too small or ill-fitted for me. I felt defeated, disgusted with my body for not fitting the clothing correctly, and tried to hide my feelings the whole shoot. The items that did fit were all lingerie, very risqué garments. I was so uncomfortable because I was much younger and there was no “body positivity movement” to empower me to feel comfortable shooting in those types of items.

Back then I was being told to lose weight and that I was too big. Can I be real here?  I never talked about this but it was a huge push for models to be size 10-12, not 16-18. Size discrimination was going on heavy back then.

When I first started, the demand for plus models was size 16/18 but over the years the plus model size demand started shrinking. Plus models deal with size-ism just like straight-size models. There is a huge misconception that plus models are so lucky they can eat and just be fat & happy. This was way before plus bloggers & influencers of today, who have proven women like seeing larger bodies and statistics showing a majority of women are size 14/16. 

3-Lisa Scott Dishes on the Biggest Changes to the Plus-Size Industry + How to Get Involved Now

Do you feel this was just a brand issue or was the issue the agencies as well?

At a size 16-18, I had to work twice as hard on bookings to prove I was worthy to get rebooked. I was the only size 16-18 model on the Ford Models roster. There were no models above a size 14.

I was on a booking where the client told me, Lisa, I called to book you and one of your agents stated Lisa is the biggest model we have. She told him I want to book Lisa. He said she’s a size 16 are you sure? She said I know that’s why we want her. This agent would continually not send me out to castings. In the end, I was already seeking new representation and sometimes would get sent the same casting by another agency and book the job. It was insane! 

All this craziness was the reason I made the decision to leave Ford Models and sign with another agency. I never uttered one word to anyone about this whole fiasco. I moved on, it just got too hard to struggle with this particular booker’s idea of an acceptable “plus model”. I don’t even think my other bookers were aware of his behavior. He was not a bad person, he just had his standard of what size he considered plus size.

One place a model should not be struggling with is their agency. It’s difficult enough as a model to put ourselves out there to be constantly critiqued. The last thing needed is an unsupportive agency or booker.

Sometimes in life, you have to close the door yourself not wait for it to close in your face.

One of the most impressive things about being at a shoot with you is your sense of confidence. It’s the same today as it was over 15 years ago when I first set foot at one of your shoots. What does confidence mean to you and how important is confidence when you are in front of the camera?

After leaving Ford Models after 15+ years, I freelanced with a few agencies and signed up to a few casting networks. I started submitting for commercials and theater work. I went on to book many commercials and did lots of off-Broadway theater work in NYC. During this time my confidence really got a boost. I was relying on myself and not an agency to book work. That confidence I developed definitely transferred over to my modeling.

I cannot say how important it is to find your confidence with the camera. That camera is like a 3rd eye, literally picking up everything. It’s like it can read your thoughts. The camera captures every facial expression and our body language. It is mandatory to find your sweet spot as a model.

You don’t have to know 100 poses, but instead, get a good solid 10 under your belt. I mastered catalog modeling because that was my bread and butter during my era. There were many catalog opportunities back then and they liked the smiley, friendly, happy girl movement. I learned how to model sitting as well as standing.

The confidence I built in my modeling career carried over to every area of my life. Keep in mind clients not only are hiring you to get an image but they love models that exude confidence.

4-Lisa Scott Dishes on the Biggest Changes to the Plus-Size Industry + How to Get Involved Now

Let’s chat style…  Styles change every season and over the years OUR style changes as well. How would you describe your fashion aesthetic?

My personal style aesthetic is “explore it” and “try it”. Let me tell you why… When I was in my late teens and 20’s plus size clothing was not great or youthful-looking. I was shopping in Nordstrom’s and Macy’s where my mom shopped. I would search the racks for something hip and trendy the way I felt inside. Back then I would have killed for some sassy, trendy Forever21 or Fashionnova.

So here I am today willing to try everything that I like. I’m not afraid to make fashion faux pas. I admire women that have their style down to a science but I know I’m not ready to settle for an identifying style yet. Especially when there is so much plus size goodness being introduced to the market more frequently.

Believe me, I tried to edit my wardrobe and capsule dress, but I have come to grips with the fact that I like different styles depending on how I feel on a daily basis. I dress for my mood. I can put on a sweatsuit one day and the next day a black satin slip dress and cardigan duster. I’m ok with being all over the place style-wise.

What does Ageless Style mean to you?

Ageless Style to me is not letting anyone put you in a box, especially the “old lady” box. Many women and men have put the mature woman out to pasture. Totally written us off as if our life ends at 40.

We are treated, as we should not be socially on the scene. I notice there are tons of women 40+ on Facebook but not many visible on Instagram. Definitely not many doing fashion content specifically for the plus size mature women. It’s really disheartening to see because what do people think happens to a woman after 40?

I’m here to tell you life goes on after 40, 50, 60, 70+. I plan on living an active 40+ more years because both my grandmothers lived well into their 80’s and my mom is in her 70’s. So that means I’m going to need activewear, casual, business, vacation, and date night clothing options. As long as I’m breathing I’m going to be indulging in those activities.

It would be awesome to see more mature women like myself in campaigns and advertisements. Actually, it would probably make me buy more.

…also it means staying open and continuing to make self-improvement, forgiving myself for days I don’t have it all together and could have done more, admitting I’m not always right, listening to my inner voice speaking to me, not being terrified of the number is going up every year and laughing as much as I can every day is how I define ageless style.

It’s clear that confidence and preparation are at the forefront of long-lasting careers.

Style Uncompromised With BAACAL Designer and Founder Cynthia Vincent

Published

Style Uncompromised With BAACAL Designer and Founder Cynthia Vincent

In a world where the fashion industry has often adhered to rigid ideals of beauty, Cynthia Vincent stands as a trailblazer, challenging conventions and fostering a sense of belonging for individuals of all shapes and sizes.

Cynthia Vincent designs celebrate the beauty of diversity and cater to a wide range of body types, breaking free from the restrictive norms that have for so long defined the runway.

Get to know BAACAL Designer and Founder Cynthia Vincent…

Can you tell us about the ethos and inspiration behind your fashion brand? What drove you to create it, and what values does it represent?”

“Style Uncompromised”  is the entire ethos of BAACAL distilled down to its core.  Style, quality, thoughtful and sustainable. 

Style is something you have or evolve as you better understand yourself. Clothing is one if the most powerful tools to express who you are and how you present yourself to the world.  

Quality, Style and Sustainability are interconnected for me. 

Beautifully made clothes can last a lifetime, if the design and style last past a trend cycle.  

In a competitive market, what sets your brand apart from others in the plus-size fashion industry? How do you differentiate yourself, both in terms of style and messaging?”

BAACAL is really the first designer-led brand for Plus, Extended, and Curvy sizes.  

Advertisement

 As a CFDA Designer, I want to give more women the ability to wear clothes that fit and flatter. I don’t really know of another brand that is offering beautifully made, expertly fit clothes past a size 8 that are stylish enough to last for years not just a trend cycle. Especially not from a brand that is also concerned with ethical and sustainable practices.

Could you share some insights into the design philosophy of your brand? How do you ensure that your clothing not only looks great but also caters to the unique needs and preferences of plus-size individuals?”

The philosophy is: Modern wardrobe essentials mixed with the item of the season. 

For me, it is important to see what is missing in the market and offer it to her. Items I too am often needing and wanting.  When I first launched BAACAL it was December – and I wanted to prove a point so I offered Coats!  I did that because I was always looking for a new coat in November- December and they were always gone by then.  I realized I could not be the only person.  My hunch paid off. We sold out. The Double-Breasted Car Coat, and in Spring the Trench coat, have been perennial sellouts for us every year since. 

For BAACAL it’s about building an amazing wardrobe that you can pull from and always know you will look and feel good.  

That’s the essentials like the Car Coat, our Tie Neck Dress or the Perfect White Shirt. It’s also items of the season that hit the trends while still being timeless. Like our iconic Joni Dress – which started as the Item of the Season, but now we do a few new cotton prints each year and our customers collect them. She does this because she knows whenever she reaches for it, she will feel fantastic. 

Fashion is often about self-expression. How does your brand empower individuals to express themselves through their style, regardless of their size?”

I love fashion and trends and creativity. I think self-expression through clothing is not trivial. It is vital to our well-being.

When I am designing and creating a garment, the most important thing besides looking beautiful is how it feels.  Because when you feel and look amazing it is empowering!  We have all had those days when you have an amazing outfit on, but something is just not right. Then you are pulled out of the moment – forced to deal with a strap or adjust something. You just don’t feel great because it does not fit right.  

As women past a size 10 we have been used to settling on fit, settling on what little choices were out there and being unable to fully express ourselves.  There are so many brands and clothes out there – but not for women past a certain size.  

Longevity and sustainability are important aspects of the fashion industry today. What are your long-term goals for the brand in terms of sustainability and ethical practices?”

When I decided to start again in this Industry I had to ask myself two very important questions: 1) Does anyone really need any more clothes;  and  How do we be more mindful of everything we put into this world? 

The first question was answered with a resounding YES when I had my a-ha moment. I was not able to find anything to wear for a very important meeting with an Icon of fashion. After spending countless hours and many many try-ons later, I realized I could not find beautiful clothes for myself that were both well-made and stylish. 

I knew I had to start a new brand for women who have been ignored in Fashion, we actually need clothes! 

But what about the waste?

I had seen firsthand the enormous amount of waste in our industry and even resistance to just recycling  

Thank goodness now almost everyone is aware. That said, BAACAL is made with a commitment to be 80% sustainable. We use upcycled materials, stock and deadstock fabric and trims. We source and produce the majority of what we offer locally and use women-owned small businesses that we pay a living wage to. We are committed to reducing waste wherever possible.

Could you elaborate on the size inclusivity of your brand? Who is your target audience, and how do you ensure that your clothing appeals to a diverse range of body types and tastes?”

I take great care to cross-fit on many different body types as I’m developing my designs. I also offer styles that fit in a certain way and use techniques that are size inclusive such as smocking and adjustability. 

The BAACAL woman is anyone with a discerning taste who cares about quality. They are usually at a point in their style evolution that they want to build a wardrobe that will last for years to come. 

When I decided to launch BAACAL I did my research to back up what I already knew – that larger women were being systematically ignored in designer and contemporary fashion.  That the average American woman was a size 16/18. That size 10 and 12 were always the first to sell out in my past brands Vince and Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent.  Despite these fact, stores would not buy them. So, I took the majority size and went equally up and down the scale, creating our current 1-5 sizing. 

Advertisement

Inclusivity and diversity have become central themes in fashion. How does your brand actively promote these values, both in your designs and in your marketing strategies?”

Inclusivity has been a part of my design ethos my entire career.

As a Latina woman, most people assume I am not. I have seen firsthand how most “other groups” have been ignored for far too long. It was important to me from day one to show diverse images of women that you do not normally see in fashion.  That includes age, size and race. 

Collaborations and partnerships can be powerful in the fashion industry. Have you collaborated with influencers or other brands to promote body positivity and inclusivity? If so, could you share some examples?”

We are always looking for new people and brands to collaborate with.  Collaboration is the modern approach. One of the most amazing things that’s evolved in the last decade is the democratization of fashion- I love seeing how influencers we dress create their looks from our clothing. We try to fill as many requests as we can because BAACAL seems to be a favorite for fashion week content!

Body positivity is a key message in the plus-size fashion community. How does your brand contribute to this movement, and what initiatives have you undertaken to support and uplift plus-size individuals?”

While we participate in many local events here for our plus-size community, I think one thing that I really can do is help women learn to express themselves through clothing. There is starting to be a fantastic shift in the dialogue, and the resource of our communal voice is so powerful. I love seeing women of all ages being proud of their beautiful selves and remember that not so long ago those voices barely existed. Still, I hear so often “I can’t wear that” or “That’s not for me”- coming from a buried experience, and a place of shame or insecurity. I want to scrub that from our language. The reason many people feel they “can’t” is because they’ve been told that by the lack of options at stores; or by trying designs that aren’t properly constructed for our beautiful shapes. I speak through my design and want to embrace and empower our community in the best ways possible.

Could you describe a memorable success story or transformation that one of your customers experienced through your brand? How does this reflect the impact of your clothing and message?”

I am very fortunate to have customers who share how much they love the brand with me once they discover it. One that really touched me was a woman who had not purchased a single item of clothing for herself in 18 years! Because she had given up on fashion! She purchased our Joni dress to wear to her son’s wedding with the hopes of having something appropriate. 

She shared with me how my dress helped her look and feel amazing at the event and how beautiful she felt.  Not only did she get compliments all night (she was the mother of the Groom after all) but when 3 total strangers complimented her on her dress. She thanked me for making a dress that could make her feel truly beautiful for the first time in decades. 

Looking ahead, what exciting developments or collections can your customers look forward to from your brand in the near future?”

I am most excited by two things right now: More upcycled pieces, and bringing my collection to women in person.  I am working on a project that will allow people to feel, try on and fall in love with the clothes!   **?Three things?? Live selling is something I’ve just started to play with- it’s almost like a new version of the boutique experience of the “old days”. Communicating with the customer to explain multiple ways to wear garments, helping her experiment with fashion and engaging in a direct dialogue about how we can use clothing to reflect the way we want to be seen in the world.

Fabulous and Fall-Ready: Plus Size Fashion in the Workplace…

It’s time to update your work wardrobe to embrace the beauty of fall. Plus-size fashion has come a long way in recent years, with an increasing focus on inclusivity and style. In this post, we’ll explore fabulous and fall-ready workwear options, while also shedding light on some essential plus-size fashion statistics to highlight the industry’s growth and importance.

Plus Size Fashion Statistics:

Before diving into the world of plus-size fall fashion, let’s take a moment to acknowledge the impressive strides this industry has made:

  1. Market Growth: Plus-size fashion is a thriving market, with a global market value expected to reach $157.4 billion by 2026, according to Grand View Research.
  2. Inclusivity: More brands are embracing inclusivity, with a 68% increase in the number of new brands offering plus-size options in 2020, as reported by Edited.
  3. Consumer Demand: A survey by NPD Group found that 67% of women in the U.S. wear a size 14 or larger, indicating a substantial demand for plus-size clothing.

Now, let’s explore how you can create a fabulous and fall-ready workwear wardrobe that not only fits comfortably but also makes you feel confident and chic.

Fall-Ready Plus-Size Workwear Essentials

  1. Statement Blazers: A well-fitted blazer is a must-have in any work wardrobe. Opt for fall-appropriate colors like deep burgundy, forest green, or classic black. Blazers add sophistication to your outfit and can be paired with dresses, skirts, or trousers.
  2. High-Waisted Trousers: High-waisted trousers are incredibly popular among plus-size influencers. Look for warm, autumnal shades like camel, rust, or olive green. These pants can be styled with blouses, sweaters, or tucked-in tops for a polished look.
  3. Wrap Dresses: Wrap dresses are universally flattering and perfect for transitioning between seasons. Choose wrap dresses in rich, fall hues and pair them with tights and ankle boots for added warmth and style.
  4. Chunky Sweaters: Fall is synonymous with cozy sweaters. Invest in chunky knit sweaters in colors that complement your skin tone. These can be paired with skirts or pants for a comfortable yet stylish office look.
  5. Ankle Boots: A good pair of ankle boots can elevate any outfit. Choose versatile neutral shades or go for something bold like animal prints to add a pop of personality to your work attire.
  6. Accessories: Don’t forget to accessorize! A statement necklace, a stylish belt, or a patterned scarf can instantly transform your outfit and make it suitable for the office.

Fall is a wonderful season to showcase your style at the workplace, and plus-size fashion has never been more vibrant and inclusive. Embrace the season by adding statement blazers, high-waisted trousers, wrap dresses, and cozy sweaters to your work wardrobe. With the growth of the plus-size fashion industry, there are plenty of fabulous options available for every body type. Remember, confidence is the key to looking and feeling fabulous, no matter what size you wear.
