Top 5 Modelling Agencies in Sydney That Embrace Different Body Types

The fashion industry is changing. No longer is it acceptable to see only one kind of model. More and more people are demanding to see diversity in fashion, calling for models of different races, sizes, abilities and ages. While the rest of the world is slow to catch up, these modelling agencies in Sydney are at the forefront of this change. If you are a model whose body doesn’t fit into conventional beauty standards, then these modelling agencies should be your first stop to finding representation.
