One wonders how often our favourite plus-size models appear in regional campaigns that pass unnoticed by the majority of us. Who knows how many stunning images of timeless beauty have been lost, simply because they were not archived for posterity?
This is not to say that the majority of the work that appears in regional circulars comprises anything but straightforward, functional imagery. It does. However, devoted aficionados will find much to admire even in the simplest of images, especially when the models in question have been out of the spotlight for a little while.
With that in mind, a reader just sent us word that Irene Marie's Kati Kochanski is currently appearing in a campaign for the Proffitt's chain.
And now that Proffitt's has joined the increasing number of retailers that are putting their promotions online, we are pleased to share two examples of this new work with her fans.
Kati looks lovelier than ever in these images. And in case any of you are beginning to feel the winter's chill, let's add a truly gorgeous swimwear image that Kati shot for the Summer 2004 Junonia catalogue, which will surely turn temperatures up a few degrees . . .
