Finch has a jab at de­sign­ers

The West Australian - - NEWS -

Rachael Finch has de­liv­ered a jab at other Fash­ion Week de­sign­ers, say­ing she would not buy their clothes.

“In re­al­ity I wouldn’t wear half the stuff,” Finch said yes­ter­day.

The model and tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity showed her B.O.D by Finch range dur­ing the ac­tive range show along­side other fit­ness wear de­sign­ers, in­clud­ing P. E. Na­tion and Ko­ral.

While many of the long­stand­ing well-known brands de­cided not to show at Mercedes-Benz Fash­ion Week in Sydney this year, Finch said it was an easy choice for her to show­case her young la­bel.

“We are un­der a year old,” she said. “We saw it as a great op­por­tu­nity.

“It is a re­ally great plat­form. It is a great way to get your brand out there.

“It is my world, it is my pas­sion. When you can com­bine your work with your pas­sion it is sur­real.”

This week, Finch posted on­line re­veal­ing she had gained 6kg in re­cent years.

She said it was im­por­tant to share the pos­i­tive body mes­sage, re­veal­ing it took her many years to feel com­fort­able in her body.

“I start­ing in the mod­el­ling in­dus­try over 10 years ago as a teenager, and lived in that world. Then I had to grow and make de­ci­sions from a health perspective on what is my body ca­pa­ble of and what is an ap­pro­pri­ate weight for me,” she said.

“Things aren’t al­ways per­fect, things aren’t al­ways pho­to­shopped and edited the way they are in mag­a­zines.”
