If you follow my Instagram account you’ll know that I’ve started a new photography project, showcasing how all shapes and sizes are beautiful. Since I decided to love myself for who I am, today, I want other people to know that they should, too. I’ve been very excited to photograph all kinds of people or all ages, sizes, abilities, and ethnicity. It’s important to me that we show that not just the “model perfect” people be showcased, because, honestly, EVERYONE HAS BEAUTY!
Normally, I’m not too excited about Fashion Week, even though I love fashion. Fashion Week usually NEVER includes plus sized models or clothing. (There is a Full Figured Fashion Week that I’d LOVE to attend and photograph one day!) However, this Fashion week, I was THRILLED to see that Prom Girl opened itself up and had models of all shapes, sizes , colors and abilities! They said:
The show will also feature “real” teens (who are not professional models) from across the country. From a male ballet dancer in Brooklyn to a football player who trains rescue K-9s in Newport Beach, from a San Francisco teen who aspires to encourage reading and literacy to a budding entrepreneur in Chicago, PromGirl and PromGuy are proud to give teens the opportunity to express themselves through fashion.
To be honest, the plus size models weren’t very big, but it was refreshing to see people who weren’t all size 0 in a fashion show! I had a look at the website for PromGirl and was THRILLED to see so many fabulous gowns! Here’s some of my favorites:
I would like to see some photos in the PromGirl Catalog of even larger girls, say sizes 20-22, but just have a SELECTION of gowns in plus size is AMAZING.
Everyone deserves to feel beautiful at their prom.
I’m so glad that PromGirl knows it, too, and encourages people of all sizes to find what makes them feel beautiful!
