I ALWAYS have so much fun visiting the Monif C. showroom and working with the team there. Monif was one of the first designers I ever did runway for and she always has a special place in my heart. Curvy girls, go visit her if you are in NYC or visit her site! monifc.com (tell her I sent you ;)
I got a call from my agent saying that a new client wanted to use me as the face of their new plus-size line of bathing suits for a major swim brand. This brand has been in the biz for quite some time and their sister company is launching a new site and needed a plus gal to do catalog work for their line. I took the trip to Pennsylvania with a huge smile on my face knowing this was kinda really cool. First of all, how cool is it that a line wanted to even shoot a plus model for their plus line (a lot of brands will sell plus but not necessarily shoot plus models/catalogs) and second, how cool is it that they chose a fuller plus gal? I'm a full size 18, y'all (which is NOT the go-to size when clients choose plus models for swimwear). So...this was a big win for the industry and for beautiful curvy ladies all around the world who need to see someone just like them when purchasing suits for the summer. Can't wait to share when it drops. MUCH love.
