AFTERNOON TEA SHOPPING EVENT FOR CHARITY

BLACK LIVES MATTER – BLACK TOP MODELS I ADMIRE

Today I want to put the spotlight on some amazing black fashion models that I admire. As an ex fashion model, I know the drive, sacrifices and commitments it takes to be a successful model and also a role model.  As a true fashion lover I decided to emphasize these women who are changing the fashion world and most importantly, using their voice and platform to positively affect the black community and the Black Lives Matter movement. From Indya Moore who gave the most emotional speech about fearing your life as a black transgender during the Daily Front Row awards in NY earlier this year to Adut Akech who recently won  the ‘Model of the Year” awards at the BFAs or...
