An East Midlands charity is holding a fashion summit because it wants to get more designers to use different shaped and sized models.

Body in Derby, who help young people with body image disorders, think women could be better represented on the catwalk.

Lauren Benton is their CEO:

'When people come to us a huge amount of the symptom is environment based.

'So they'll [young people] always refer to either media, fashion or magazines and you know what? We're kind of sick of seeing all that now, so let's do something about it.'

A fashion summit is being held at Derby Uni.
