Designers and the Plus size Models Issue

It has been brought to the close attention of many fashion lovers that all the main fashion houses do not use plus size models to star in campaigns or fashion weeks.

But why don’t they?

In previous years plus size women have been used for campaign but never catwalks. This has now also spread over to the high street business industry as well as high-end fashion houses.

But why? A lot of women look at the “perfect” thin models as intimidating and make bigger women feel worthless and not ok. It’s not fair so we want to make the fashion community aware.

We want to make the fashion community want the plus size women careers to grow and be used for fashion houses and high-street campaigns and catwalks once again.

Game Review

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a survival horror video game developed and published by Capcom. The game was released worldwide for Microsoft WindowsPlayStation 4, and Xbox One in January 2017, with support for the PlayStation VR headset. It is the 24th entry in the Resident Evil franchise, and the first main series instalment to be played from person perspective. Resident Evil 7 was announced during Sony's presentation in June.

The story follows Ethan Winters as he searches for his wife Mia, which leads him to a derelict plantation inhabited by the Baker family. Ethan makes use of weapons and tools in the fight against the Baker family and creatures known as the "Molded". Healing herbs are used in the event of injury and there are puzzles that may be solved to further the story. Instead of being action-oriented, the survival horror element present in earlier instalments took priority. Thus, it was decided that a first-person perspective be included. It is the first commercially released game developed in the RE Engine.

Orisa Overwatch release

Orisa is a new hero in the ptr Orisa uses a machine gun called the Fusion Driver.  The weapon’s secondary fire is a pulse shot that will suck players into a space for a short amount of time — it’s like a miniature version of Zarya’s ultimate, except it’s available more frequently. Orisa’s core ability is called Fortify, and it not only makes the robot tougher, it also neutralizes the effects of crowd-control weapons like Pharah’s concussive blast. She also has a protective barrier that is like Reinhardt’s shield, but she can place it wherever she wants.

For her ultimate, Orisa has the Supercharger, which is an item she can drop to boost the damage of her teammates as long as they are within line of sight.

Trumps travel ban put to a halt by Hawaiian judge

The new ban, which Trump signed on March 6th, set out to ban people from 6 predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States. This order was set to ban people from Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Although, an emergency halt was put on the order by U.S District Judge Derek Watson saying it showed discrimination of Islam which is a violation of the U.S Constitution. This ban made Trump lash out saying it “makes us look weak”. However, this ban is only temporary until both arguments can be heard in court. Companies such as Apple and Facebook and many more have shown support of the ban by filing a “friend in court case” which says the order could hurt their ability to find talent all over the world.  Trump told a crowd at Nashville he will fight the judge who blocked the order from going through.

New £1 Coin

The round pound which we have all grown to know will be phased out by October 15th this year. In its place there will be a new coin which is both silver and gold. The tails sign of the coin was designed in 2015 by schoolboy David Pearce. New features include a hologram design which will make the £ sign change to the number 1 when held at different angles. This change will also mean the new coin has 12 edges. The up rise in edges is an attempt to stop criminals from faking the coin. It will also include grooves and tiny lettering which will make it easier for shopkeepers to spot a genuine coin. There are currently 45million £1 coins in circulation, 3% of which are apparently not real.

The new design will come into play on March 28th and hoppers will have until October 15th to spend them or return them to the bank. However, large supermarkets will still the new and old coins as well as tokens for their trollies.

Before Fame…

All musicians have a chance to shine… but not all make it into the music industry. So how did our music stars become the people we know and listen to all the time become who they are today? Let’s find out!

Twenty One Pilots: A fairly new group to the industry. It’s made up of two people; Tyler Joseph the lead vocalist/Pianist and he have many more abilities too. Josh Dun is the drummer of the group. He only plays drums though he has severe anxiety and it’s hard for him to sing and dance on stage. This group wasn’t all 2 people it used to be 3 people. Tyler created the band back in high school with Nick Thomas and Chris Salih.Tyler came up with the name by be inspired by the book ‘All My Sons’ where a man sent out faulty aeroplane part and Twenty One Pilots died. Later the previous members left as they had to go to college and focus on work, so that’s when Josh stepped in for the drummer! Tyler also didn’t think he would be doing music, he thought he would be doing basketball until he found out he was good at piano. He then started playing piano and formed a group. Josh was under very strict religious rules; he had to skate board to the nearest record shop and be recommended a record then skateboard to the music shop where he then played on the drum kits until he got kicked out because other people had to come in and view the drums. Sometimes his parents would find his records and become very mad, causing them to find a replacement song. He wasn’t in Twenty One Pilots; he toured with the band ‘House of Hero’s’ until Tyler needed him to step in. Josh then quit his job for one show but Tyler let him join the band in later years.  They made two albums, Vessel and Blurry Face. Blurry face has now hit main stream music and they have gained a lot of fans. And that’s how they became famous!

Some of their songs are secret love song, black magic, touch and many more, they have five albums: glory days, get weird, salute, DNA and love me like you. All of the members auditioned on the X factor as solo members and later joined as a group. There album black magic was the biggest ore order in 2015. Their album single salute reached over one million views within 24 hour. Their original name was rhythmix but had to change it due to a charity having the same name .jade auditioned on the x factor twice before winning with little mix, the bands motto is always be yourself.
