It’s terrifying for young women models to enter a standard based industry. At a young age they are taught that they have to constrict their bodies natural shape and growth to conform to the expectations of what “size” models should be. Our bodies are not meant to fit into a mold , they are each extremely diverse and grow at vastly different rates. How is it expected for someone that has a naturally wider waste to restrict themselves and force their bodies into this mold the industry has created for them! Society has noticed that many brands include “plus sized” models in their marketing campaigns to show that they support diversity and accept every body type but other than being a publicity stunt large brands like Victoria Secret and many more continue to prefer and serve the “industry standard” woman.
When will the standard be broken When will young aspiring models no longer need to force themselves to fit in , literally. #iamawomanofart
I wanted to do something special for the holidays. This time of year always makes me want to shoot commercial content, and so I decided to gather up old and new friends in a big photoshoot party in an attempt to play with making my own holiday campaign. As you can probably tell, my inspiration for the shoot were primarily @gap ads. As a teenager of the early 2000’s, I was heavily influenced by GAP ads and to this day they are still a dream client. I wanted some cohesion throughout the shoots so I dressed everyone in a similar style, chose similar colour tones, and decided to apply the same font over my photographs as a homage to the iconic brand. ✨
Give Yourself. What are your talents, your interests, your point of view What have you hidden in an attempt to make others happy or to fit in What dream are you not pursuing out of fear of failure or fear of judgement I’ve been slowly working on pursuing my own dream, and it’s a lot of hard work and perpetual self-doubt, but I can tell you that going after what you really want is so, so rewarding in countless ways. Just do what you need to do, how you want to do it. People will either get it or they won’t, but don’t let other people tell you what your dream should look like. ✨
