Full Fit ✨ #PinkPolo2019 ——— Storytime: Had a conversation with someone yesterday that reminded me that I’m not and have never really been taken seriously as a valuable contributor to the fashion industry. & if we’re being honest, the babes the industry take seriously all have a similar look and feel. I’m short, dark skinned and fat—there’s no way that hasn’t hindered my progress and success, especially in this country. I have been in the industry for a really long time now and if we keeping it 100— I don’t have a lot to show for it. I mean sure, I have the consistent support and love from the people who follow and support me but that’s pretty much it. I’m definitely not backed by the media, either. The media has dubbed me so many titles without my consent, always insisting on labeling me a “plus-size” something or the other. I don’t and have never really consented to being labeled any of that or other similar terms. What those labels do is further more remove me from the work I actually do, others me, and separates me from the pack and that has been so damaging to my career as someone who believes to have put in some work over the years to be seen for the work I do in fashion, and nothing else. I can’t help but think how things would be if I looked different. There are so many instances and things that were told to my face that corroborates my story. I have been snubbed opportunities with no real reasons or explanations but the favourite “she isn’t a brand fit”. I have had designers not want to work with me on the same EXACT capacity they do my peers— it’s so obvious that they have no business wanting to dress a fat person. I have been treated very poorly on set by stylists in comparison to fellow ‘smaller’ framed ‘influencers’, —the list goes on. The only time I’m even considered is when a brand or campaign is taking a “inclusive” approach—but I’m never considered, to JUST be considered. So much work has to be done to NORMALIZE people who ‘look like me ‘ and that work in fashion. We’ve merely scrapped the surface. ——— Make-up: @rushanaisaacs Fit: If you’re a real one, you already know the answer to this. Hat: @therealcrystalbirch Accesorizes : @zara
