The short answer is: because the use of professional plus fashion models would exclude you.
Professional fashion models are typically selected for their exceptional youth, health, symmetry, posture, colouring and self-confidence. They become "models" for the rest of us precisely because they are "atypical".
Quatorze Plus Montreal, a trilingual online plus women's fashion hub, seeks non-professional plus (size 14 and higher) fashion models for online photographic fashion editorials: an exploration of trends in grooming and fashion, that will help define the Montreal plus woman.
