Who ate all the Pies?
A pie making firm near Caerphilly, Wales, has taken a stand against hungry looking models used at London Fashion Week by sending its 'Starvation Army' volunteers to deliver pasties & sausage rolls to the catwalks. The firm says it has struck a blow against 'skinny models and size zero fashionistas' Peter's Food Service said it took 10 boxes of pasties and sausage rolls to the London Fashion week event. The pie-making firm said it decided to address the issue of ultra skinny models when the topic was debated at the London Fashion Week last autumn. A spokesperson for the firm said: 'Who knows it may even be the end to size zero.' The company is hoping for feedback on its 'Starvation Army' delivery from organisers, but was glad to hear from the models themselves -'Some of the models said 'we might be tall and we might be thin but actually we do get hungry'. It is not the first time the pie-making firm has mobilised its 'starvation army'. In July 2007, the bakers presented Miss Wales 2007, Kelly Pesticcio, with a year's supply of pies and pasties following her crowning. If you're passing - the staff over here at Curvety could do with a delivery!!!
