Fashion students in Edinburgh have become the first in the UK to start designing clothes for larger ladies.

The move is part of a campaign to encourage the fashion industry to think again about its notions of body shape and beauty.

Usually students would only work with size 10 models.

Now they have been told it is time to embrace the fuller figure.
