'That iconic body morphing b*tch'
"I love Michaelas work, it is beautiful and important. It holds up a mirror to society. You saw that in the backlash she received in September for her project with Victoria's Secret, her instagram got suspended. The trolls piled on and one of the many thousands of comments was BRING BACK GISELE." - Jonny Banger

It’s actually quite ridiculous how, on just one post of my work, there are literally thousands of comments like this - not only body shaming me for being ‘fat’ and ‘disgusting’, but also dismissing everything I do to my size.
'Bring Back Gisele' is a sentiment of everything I am fighting against.
The idea of a T-shirt came from a mutual friend, Charlie McCosker, who worked with me on the VS project. Charlie put me and Jonny Banger in contact, and I knew I instantly wanted to work with him, because he is so fantastic at capturing irony and humour in such a succinct and simple way.
Me, Charlie and Jonny were throwing around ideas for a while. There were a couple of great ones that nearly made the cut, until one day Jonny randomly sent me the ‘Bring Back Gisele’ top, which genuinely made me laugh and really brightened my day.
