Charli Howard

Charli Howard is to host a new fashion podcast series.

The curvy British model and body positivity champion, who has appeared in campaigns for the likes of Nike, Agent Provocateur, and Maybelline, will front the Fashion Fix, which launches on BBC Sounds on Friday.

"I'm so thrilled to have been approached by BBC Sounds to do this podcast," the 28-year-old said in a statement. "I'm learning so much about sustainability within the fashion industry from the models, designers and influencers trying to make a difference - and how we all have a small part to play in making the planet a better place. I hope people enjoy listening as much as I'm enjoying recording it."

According to the BBC, the podcast will tackle some of the biggest issues facing people, the fashion industry and the planet today, such as body positivity, diversity, and sustainability.

"At a time when people are increasingly environmentally and socially conscious but bombarded by images of fast fashion and latest trends, Fashion Fix with Charli Howard will aim to unpick the complexities of the fashion industry," the series description continues.

In each episode, Howard will interview guests such as Mariah Idrissi, one of the first models to wear a hijab in a mainstream fashion campaign, Russian model Kristina Romanova, who co-founded the digital support network Humans of Fashion, and former child garment worker Kalpona Akter.

Howard, who co-founded The All Woman Project, a charity which seeks to educate young people about body image and mental health issues, has been having a busy 2019 thanks to the launch of her inclusive new skincare line, Squish Beauty.
