What would you describe your roll in the fashion industry? : MODEL
When did you first start to take an interest in fashion? I’ve always been interested in how people outwardly expressed themselves in creative ways.
Who are some of your favorite fashion icons? In the plus industry I love Monif C., Queen Grace Collection, Cult of California, and Qristyl Frazier to name a few.
Where do you find inspiration? I find inspiration from everyday people expressing their individuality and creating stylish looks from what they have. Brooklyn has some of the best dressed people and at the same time everyone is doing them!
When shopping, what are some key things you assess before you make a purchase? Style, how it fits my curves, and price.
How do you see the plus size industry booming in the fashion industry today? It’s constantly growing! I am seeing more and more plus size fashion!
Where do you do you see plus size fashion in 30 years from now? Everywhere! In high fashion, Vogue, and all around the world. I see all women represented from size 8 and up. We need more of our images represented!
Where are some of favorite places to shop? Aside from some of the designers I listed, I like Forever 21, H & M, Fashion to Figure, Pay Half, and many more!
How long have you been modeling for? I’m fairly new at modeling and became interested last year. I’ve done a few test shoots and am looking forward to doing more! I did my first photoshoot with major plus photographer Michelle Alexandra this past December. It was such a great experience and I am looking forward to growing and learning more as a model!
Where are some places you have modeled for? So far, I have modeled for Maasari, a plus size french designer.
Do you have any projects that you are anticipating? I am starting my own company and I look forward to sharing more once things fall into place!
Do you have any tips for women who may want to model? Research, study, and shoot! Invest in your craft.
Lastly, Do you have any last words you want to leave for curvy girls everywhere? We are all beautiful in our own way. You don’t necessarily have to be a model to prove that so represent who you are, curves and all!
