There is a pioneer whose name is a must in plus size fashion industry. She is not only a well-known model but a talented photographer with her edgy view on the world. She was featured in French Vogue magazine after she rocked the catwalk of Jean Paul Gaultier and John Galliano haute couture fashion shows. Velvet D’Amour is a true inspiration for all curvy women who seek for acceptance and motivation.

It was a long personal journey but as I always say, you have to find your confidence via these struggles. As a kid I was the typical fat girl who was bullied so much that my Mom had to transfer me to a private school. She signed me on to the local swim team, much to my chagrin, and I lost a bit of weight but I was never thin enough to sign with the model agency interested in me, the weight was always an issue. I went through extreme diets but after my art studies I occupied the other part of the camera as a photographer. My personal revolution started when I created a sort of art project using my own body to emulate photos I saw in mainstream magazines as a way to help change perceptions in beauty. I realized how much time I wasted on hating my body when I started my volunteer work, back in New York.
