Size 16 model Ashley Graham led the catwalk show featuring curvy models during the ongoing New York Fashion Week. Graham mesmerized the audience as she modeled her own lingerie line on the runway on Tuesday.
The plus-size model sashayed her way on the runway wearing a sexy black lacy lingerie, created to fit curvy women. All eyes were on the brunette beauty as she walked the runway wearing sheer knickers and a sexy black cut-out bra, Mirror reported.
“What an amazing experience!! All the girls looked amazing,” the 28-year-old said on Instagram, after the show, which was broadcast globally on Periscope and Graham urged everyone to promote it with the hashtag, #IAmSizeSexy.
Graham, who was the first plus-size model to appear in Sports Illustrated magazine, is spearheading various other online campaigns to promote equality for curvy women. She recently appeared in designer Lane Bryant's campaign -- #PlusIsEqual, which aims to put curvy models at the same altar as skinny ones.
She was also part of their #ImNoAngel campaign, which targeted skinny models from Victoria's Secret. As a plus size model, Graham has appeared on the cover page of Elle Quebec magazine and has also been interviewed and featured in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Glamour magazines.
Graham's show at the NYFW comes after she partnered with Canadian retailer Addition Elle to make her own range of lingerie for plus size women. “I could find sexy bras and I could find supportive bras, but it was never sexy and supportive together,” the Nebraskan model said at the time of launch of her lingerie line, according to Mail Online.
The gorgeous model believes that every women deserves to see themselves being represented equally in the fashion world. “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,” Graham told the Huffington Post.
