British beauty Daisy Lowe has opened up on how stressful she often finds Fashion Week. The model says that in the past she has ended up in tears calling her agency threatening to quit, and another way she would cope is by baking regularly, even though she admits that she would then add to her figure and no longer be sample size:

“At least once a season I’d be on the phone to my agent, crying, ‘That’s it! I’m done! I can’t do it anymore.’ And every time the [Fashion Week] shows would come around I’d bake like mad. It was a coping mechanism, it was the rebel inside me thinking I was sticking up for the feminine form. But actually I was just shooting myself in the foot, because I wasn’t sample size anymore.”

The model recalls being rejected for her figure in the past and she was even sent home from jobs because she wasn’t the right size:

“I remember living away from home for the first time and finding it so difficult. I’d been sent home from a job for being too big and I was talking to my boyfriend at the time saying, ‘What am I going to do? I can’t starve myself – I’m not one of those girls. So am I going to have to start making myself sick.'”

Daisy believes she has worked hard to be recognized for her fuller figure and have it accepted by the industry, she is also proud of what she has achieved and says she has worked hard for it:

“The attitude I have now comes from working as hard as I did in an industry I didn’t really fit into. Some people think I’m only famous because of my parents, but I worked my a**e off and I’m proud I’m one of the few girls in the industry with curves – boobs, an a**e, hips and thighs.”
