Plus Size blogger, model, designer, and advocate GabiFresh held an open casting call for models to appear with her in a shoot for her Swimsuits For All collection.
The photos are in, and we're LOVING the diverse array of shapes, sizes, and colors!
In an interview with TeenVogue, Gabi explained her decision to hold an open casting call - which brought out over 500 women, of diverse backgrounds and levels of modeling experience "including alopecia advocate Alopeachia."
“I wanted to show true diversity in shapes and sizes, and unfortunately model agencies simply don't have a lot of that diversity on their boards. Even when they have plus-size models, they often stop at size 16 and are almost always hourglass figures. I wanted to show women who represented the full range of my collection, from size 10 to 26. All bodies are beautiful and deserve visibility!”
