Body Positivity Models!
If you’ve ever been to a fashion show, you know all about the excitement of getting dressed to the nines, spending hours at the beauty salon to get your hair and nails perfected, and, of course, the disappointment of not seeing a single, solitary model on the runway that looks anything remotely like you.
I don’t know about you but, if I’m going to buy a designer dress, I want to make sure that it will look good on someone with my body type. Thankfully, Dewayne Williams (AKA “Mr Debonair”) of the International Beautiful You Fashion Tour has answered the call with one of the most diverse runway experiences to date.
The Beautiful You Fashion Tour
The Beautiful You Fashion Tour is “an international platform created to give independent fashion designers an opportunity to showcase their clothing brands on a global scale. Aspiring models are also able to use our worldwide events as a way to gain experience and network in the fashion industry. We generally take men, women, and kids (Ages 3+) to participate in these family-oriented shows. We feature a diverse group of fashion designers who are able to accommodate models of all shapes and sizes. Our purpose is to spread the message of self-love and to showcase the diversity in beauty.”
In other words, real, everyday people with real, everyday bodies! The Tour really is international, bringing diversity to over 150 world markets in North and South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Caribbean Islands. I was lucky enough to attend this February’s show in New York City and I was thrilled to see a massive variety of bodies, races, abilities (a gorgeous amputee model brought me to tears), and ages, even some sizzling Silver Fox models who rocked the runway with style and attitude. Designers included:
