For decades magazines and editorials captured a very limited view of what a beautiful woman looks like. And through the years some changes have been made. I loved seeing people like @ashleygraham and @lizzobeeating on @allure. But there is still a limited scope when it comes to editorial, runway and couture fashion. I mean, Hello #NYFW!?
I want to play a part in expanding that depiction. I want to show curvy girls, brown girls, women that look like me, who are often forgotten in media, that they are worthy of being seen in this medium (this is also an attempt to show myself this truth too). We all are powerfully and mysteriously attractive beings capable of so much more than the world tells us we are and limits us to be. Can you see yourself on a magazine cover? We all are worthy of being on a magazine cover no matter our size. We are worthy of being recognized, known and celebrated in all things that make us, us.
So let me introduce you to my new project: An A-Z Editorial Fashion Journey of a Curvy Brown Girl. 💁🏽♀️#EditorialFatshionA new letter was released daily until ‘Z’.
