Talk about taking the catwalk by storm! Plus-size model Ashley Graham is being praised by fans for having models of all shapes and sizes debut her latest lingerie line for her show at New York Fashion Week. Check out all the stunning pics here!
Ashley Graham, 28, is embracing the beauty of a woman, no matter their shape or size at New York Fashion Week. The size 16 model debuted her latest lingerie line for Canadian brand Addition Elle on Sept. 15, having beautiful plus-size models walk the runway with her to promote her body-positive campaign. So incredible!
Ashley and other full-figured women strutted down the catwalk wearing sexy bras and high-waisted underwear. The models debuted the brand’s holiday collection called Black Orchard, which includes black, blue and purple bras and corsets with sheer and lace detailing. The lingerie is specifically designed to fit the body of curvy women, and Ashley and the other models totally brought the look home! We love that Ashley is embracing her fabulous figure and encouraging other women to do the same. Any body type can be sexy! During the show, attendees were encouraged to use the hashtag #IAmSizeSexy to promote positive body image and diversity.
Ashley has been making waves by defying traditional model standards. She confidently posed for Sports Illustrated‘s 2015 swimsuit addition as their first plus-size model and looked absolutely phenomenal! She also is consistently hard at work on her positivity campaign with retailer Lane Bryant called #PlusIsEqual.
“Everyone deserves to see themselves being represented equally. #PlusIsEqual is showing that curvy women are accepted, they’re represented and being made a priority in the fashion industry,” Ashley told the Huffington Post. “We definitely still have more progress to make, but campaigns like this and #IAmSizeSexy are raising awareness for body diversity and continuing these great conversations.” You go girlie!
