Over the past few years, as mainstream fashion catches onto what has been happening in plus size fashion industry, there have been a few frustrating trends: models of one note, size, shape and/or race have been more and more prominent in ads, campaigns, and on social media. So, when someone does something to break the mold, like Liris Crosse and The Model Diversity Project, we take note… Just like what GabiFresh has done with part 2 of her Swimsuits for All collaboration that dropped! And how perfect is the timing as we have been showing off various plus size swimwear options?
In part one of her campaign, Gabifresh also announced an open model casting, as she was looking for diversity to be embraced and celebrated… and listen. With these images and part 2 of her campaign…
GabiFresh x SwimSuits for All Campaign Part 2
“My new Swimsuits For All collection is here!!! I’m so proud of this campaign because it includes the 9 beautiful women from my open casting call, ranging from size 10-26. It was such an amazing experience to meet and work with all of them, and we had a blast shooting at the Santa Monica Pier ?”
For the brands who swear it is hard to find fuller shaped models of varying races, TAKE NOTE, as GabiFresh killed it with 9 plus size women who came out and showed up for this shoot!
Alongside Gabifresh, these 9 women show up boldly and confidently, allowing a multitude plus size women to see themselves in a campaign. Fuller bellies, thick thighs, full busts, natural hair, no hair, and cellulite poppin!
