The latest essay in our Fashion Body series, from i-D reporter-at-large Milly McMahon, is titled 'My Fashion Body' in more than a clever twist on our series' theme. McMahon takes a resolutely personal approach to the theme of The Fashion Body and the meaning of the term both to her as a fashion journalist, and in turn as a woman affected by the images the industry produces.

    I love how this project is shaping up.
    The essays are a great counterpoint to the films.
    I thought Milly Mcmahon, was really heartfelt.
    I empathize with her too.
    I know a lot about that feeling.
