Canadian model Winnie Harlow has risen above of all critics that fashion cannot change! Or ONE cannot be accepted!
I am so happy that the door has been open even wider for this beautiful lady. Her skin condition Vitiligo is not stopping her; its the one thing that makes her beautifully unique!
Winnie shares that her childhood consisted of ridicule and bullying. Her resilience persevered, where today you have a stronger, more confident 19 year old young lady!
Winnie’s Instragram followers are proof, displaying photos of her everyday life…that it is OK to be different and shares to the those unaware to look beyond the Vitiligo. Her thoughts below in her YouTube video.
Desigual has gotten it right! Winnie Harlow is part of their SS 2015 campaign and setting the bar high!
You may recall Michael Jackson had the skin disease and Tamar Braxton, who also has it – often talks about it on her show, The Real. We are seeing examples of it with everyday people.
As we become more educated, we will become more conscious of our reaction. Winnie has been inspirational in that change! She was on the NYFW runway this week! Doing her thing and looking absolutely FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would love to see Winnie in a Dove Campaign and show the industry even more that uniqueness is so beautiful <hint>! I would love to hear what you think?
