Not Only Twenty joins the diversity revolution in fashion with All Woman Project #IAmAllWoman 

 

Despite evident signs of change appear in campaigns and fashion magazines, there is still much work to be done.

Fashion and modeling industries are more open then ever and is now pretty usual to see model’s images that look like the average woman, there is still a stronghold: the runways.

The All Woman Project is an idea that spawned a new campaign. The project was launched the last year, and now the creators are doing again. They are Charli Howard, a British model who knows well this problem (a size six who was told she was ‘too big’ to get work in the industry), and Clémentine Desseaux, a body-positive blogger.

The campaign fills the industry’s lack in diversity in terms of race, body type, and age.

These models, who represent all-female types, are tired of this lack.

The campaign includes a wide range of models, such as plus-size models Denise Bidot, and Barbie Ferreira, body image activist Iskra Lawrence, pregnant runway star Mari Agory, rapper Victoria Brito, former Miss Teen US, Senegalese Instagram star Khoudia Diop, and senior style blogger Lyn Slater.

The photoshoot has been shot by models and photographers Heather Hazzan and Lily Cummings.

What is the point of?

We didn’t want to suggest that what people are doing in fashion is wrong. We just wanted to create something that was representative of the women buying fashion, and which still looks aesthetically pleasing and aspirational.” says Howard.

We are still inundated with messages,” says Howard.

“Women around the world who say we’ve helped them with their self-confidence, or helped them embrace the flaws they otherwise hated.”

There’s something more important than that?
