ALDA Models – Picture of the Week – 2/2/2015

Beautiful ALDA models for BUST Magazine

Models Ashley Graham, Danielle Redman, Inga Eiriksdottir, Julie Henderson and Marquita Pring formed the group ALDA which promotes the idea that models need not be categorized or pigeonholed by size but instead they just need to be a member of the group called models. Basically then if they are models, then enough said.

The models in Alda came together in 2013 when Ford Models disbanded its Plus Division and group ALDA joined IMG Models. Their objective was to pursue work and compete with any other models as models and not as plus size models. They also want to expand on the idea that models should be judged on the basis of whether they can get the job done and not solely on their size.

You can read the full story in the February/March 2015 issue of BUST Magazine on sale now.
