Now a size 14, she has learnt to love her curves and is trying to help other women feel the same way as a body confidence coach
Despite making a stellar splash at New York Fashion Week where the likes of Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid dominate the catwalks Iskra has previously admitted to spending years 'battling' with her body and her confidence as she tried to aspire to be thin.

She has found fame sharing untouched pictures of her hourglass figure on Instagram with her 2.5m followers.
'Social media has enabled me to connect with people all over the world. It allows you to feature and post what you like but I've learnt with that comes a responsibility as so many people have been kind enough to come back and tell me how inspiring they find my posts so it does make me aware of what I put up,' she said of the modern tool.
Appearing recently on This Morning, she told presenters Anita Rani and James Martin that while she now loves her body shape, it has been a long journey when she's been constantly faced with the notion that she has to be thin in order to be perfect.
She said: 'I have spent years battling with my body. Seeing it altered after photoshoots made me have body images issues.
'I would see my legs had been slimmed down, my arms were half the size, my skin was smooth, and that made me think there was something wrong with those things.
'We are not born thinking those things are flaws, we are told by society and the media and social pressures online that they are flaws van cleef arpel earrings replica.
'So now I wanted to put real images out there and let other girls see what is real.

Iskra revealed she was dropped by her modelling agency at the age of 15 as she was told her 'hips were too big' and this led to her taking 'drastic measures' to change her natural body shape.
'I aspired to be like models I saw in the media who were straight and thin. I tried to change as I thought I had to be slim to be a model.
'I took drastic measures, I was young and I didn't know what healthy was. But when I got down to asize 8, I was more unhealthy than I am now.'
But since finding fame in the plus industry, Iskra says it's changed her life and she can't wait to see what the future holds for the industry.
She said: 'What's really lovely about the curve model industry is a win for one is a win for all. When someone breaks through a barrier we're all there to support them as it means they're paving the way for other models and opening up opportunities for all of us.
'I'm always so touched that if the other girls see me secure a campaign or shoot they'll all message to congratulate me and cheer me on. It's such a supportive community and so different from when I was modelling straight sizes.'
