The media is creating a world where beauty is getting smaller and smaller. New technology has implemented impossible standards of beauty; from unrealistically photo-shopping models and celebrities to exposing new online fads such as the “thigh gap”. These impossible standards have women on a pursuit at any cost to achieve them. The ramifications of this endless conquest for beauty are dangerous, and it needs to end. Fashion is a means of expression not exclusive to those with a gap between their thighs. Fashion can be used to build up, not tear down, and set an example for the little beauties growing up behind us.
My passion is to encourage women to embrace the beauty they already possess. With my degree I want to enter the fashion industry as an artist, working in merchandising and marketing. Art school has harnessed my personal voice and expanded my practice farther than my painting major. Currently I have entered the blog scene creating a blog that captures real women, unedited, expressing their own personal style. This real women platform I believe can blossom through the use of social media, and a fresh look at marketing.
Beauty shouldn’t be limited to a size, or shape and it shouldn’t be digitally shrunk. Fashion can be used a tool to boost confidence and narrow the gap between women. Narrowing this gap is just the beginning to bringing up a generation of confident women.
