Exploitation has always existed in the fashion industry, because it is so aspirational. By cutting through the smoke and mirrors, The Model Manifesto empowers and educates models to take control of their lives into their own hands and educates the public on the reality of what's involved in modelling. Leanne Maskell has drawn on her 13 years of experience working as an international model together with her legal background to create this easy-to-understand, A-Z guide in order to end exploitation of vulnerable models and wanna-be models.
The way to end the exploitation and the ugly in the industry is by education, awareness and building change from the inside out.
Leanne Maskell is a model, law graduate and activist. Having modelled since the age of 13, her first ever job appeared in Vogue UK and she has continued this success, going on to work for brands such as ASOS, Urban Outfitters and i-D Magazine. Leanne has modelled internationally since graduating from university, signed to agencies around the world, and has both experienced and witnessed exploitation within the fashion industry. Compelled to do something about this, she left her successful career in order to help build a new safe, secure way of working for freelance models, empowering them to take control of their own lives and end exploitation.
