An eight-size mannequin announced that she "would suffer from body dysmorphism forever" after being constantly induced to lose weight by the fashion industry.
Rosie Nelson was only 21 when she met with London's biggest modeling agencies, most of whom rejected her as "too big" or "too old".
One company announced that she would hire her if she returned to the "sample size", which meant she had a height of 24 inches and hips of 35 inches.
She lost 10 kg and went back to the agency – but was told that she still had to lose more because she wanted to be "exhausted".
Rosie told Metro.co.uk that she still suffered from her body image, although she is four times smaller than the British average.
She said, "I will suffer forever from body dysmorphism because of the modeling industry.
"When I grew up, I was still very athletic and fit, and I felt very comfortable with a height of eight or ten.
"Now, at the age of eight or ten, I consider myself too tall, I pinch the skin around my belly and think I have to lose weight.
"I know that I'm considered very thin or even lean in weight in the" real world ", but in the world of models, I'm only two sizes from an oversized one."
Rosie has now joined the Remodel Fashion campaign to set global standards for model care.
Other countries, such as France, Denmark, Spain and the United States, have enacted laws to protect models of dangerous body weight goals, but Britain still needs to make.
"Modeling is one of the few areas where safety has not yet been taken," said Rosie.
"There is no paid holiday, there is no guarantee for work, even if you have signed a contract, there is no one to talk to, if you are alone in the apartment of a photographer at 8:00 pm, and he asked you to remove your bra. "
"You would think that your agent would be the one who would help and support you – but he's asking you to eat only two boiled eggs and say," Oh, this photographer is so amazing, his pictures will really help your portfolio. ". & # 39;
She added: "I saw that countless models were not eating at work, I saw some dummies fainting, I saw them with a crazy juice diet that their agencies told them to continue.
"I've seen models crying out of exhaustion, and their agencies are asking them to lose weight, and if they do not, they will lose their jobs."
Remodel Fashion was founded by Maggie Miodek, Artistic Director of Life Healthcare Communications, after reading an interview in a magazine with Model Victoire Dauxerre.
She was so shocked by her experience that she sent him a message on Instagram and the two started discussing how the fashion industry could be improved and include Rosie.
Maggie said: "The article was about [Victoire] Eat three apples a day to lose weight. I thought, why would anyone be hungry just to lose weight?
"Then we have to look at it and think," It's the perfect body ", although it looks as skinny as a skeleton – it was so fake. "
Maggie then began investigating the lack of modeling standards in the UK and decided to launch a campaign to channel traffic to an online manifest.
The Declaration contains provisions on health, nudity and food and beverages to ensure that models always exceed a minimum clothing size and have access to nutrition information.
Maggie said, "Once we have set global standards for care and models, they will be happy and healthy, which will have a huge impact on our society.
"Anorexia is on the rise in the UK and is often linked to what people see in the media and in the fashion industry – it's a vicious circle."
She added, "The models have become depressed, have developed eating disorders, or have even died of pressure, and that has to stop."
