All Hail Nicky Griffin- Our New Body Confidence Hero!

All Hail Nicky Griffin- Our New Body Confidence Hero! Meet Nicky- the 56 year old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model rewriting the rulebook on body confidence. She’s just one of the twelve diverse models who'll be starring in Bristol Fashion Week next week.


Nicky began modelling in 2013 after her twin daughters had flown the nest, leaving her to embrace a new and exciting career. Having immediately become the face of a grey hair product, she soon made history by becoming the oldest model ever to appear in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition. Having never worn a bikini in her life, she posed confidently in a gold two-piece, proving women of all shapes and sizes can look sensational.
As a mature role model and body activist, Nicola takes her responsibility and influence very seriously. She is regularly interviewed for newspapers, magazines and broadcasters all over the world, championing age diversity in the fashion industry. She represents and stands up for beauty-beyond-age and size.  She passionately believes women of all shape, size and age should be represented.
This shift in the traditional notion of a bikini body inspired Nicola to empower women and broaden the definition of beauty. Her message to the fashion world is that brands should look beyond the conventional size and age for their models and represent all women.


Don't miss Nicky modelling in Bristol Fashion Week from 27 September- 1 October. Click here to get your tickets!
