Model Hayley Hasselhoff led the protest in collaboration with plus-size retailer, Simply Be, to encourage designers to celebrate women of all shapes and sizes.
The group of models donned lace-emblazoned lingerie and carried signs outside the BFC Show Space which read messages such as, ‘LFW, Where are the Curves?’ and ‘Love your Curves’.
