Rejoice! Let’s take a moment to celebrate that we are seeing diversity more on the runways, in fashion ads, and other forms of media. Is it perfect? Absolute not. Do we still have a long way to go? 100%!
As a young girl I remember being frustrated in the 80s and 90s because the dolls almost all had blonde hair and blue eyes, hardly anyone in the magazines had an olive skin tone, and I just didn’t feel like they looked anything like me. That was my story and I am sure that everyone has a similar story if in anyway they felt as if they weren’t pretty enough, small enough, something was lacking…
Now as a single mom of two beautiful African American daughters, diversity in media and fashion is more important than ever to me.
As the owner of En Pointe Image Consulting I believe in empowering women and helping them find their own beauty. So get out there and rock what you got!
