“I’ve been wanting to execute this idea for a while now, primarily to revisit the conversation of average sized women being represented in mainstream media,” she said. “While I believe that great strides have been made in fashion, we still don’t see the women who have the most buying power equally represented.”

I want brands to understand how isolating and discouraging that is,” she said. “It’s all about representation, and I will always do what I can to make sure that all women are recognized.”
