Kebbi, Adrian, David Joh discussed on Solvable



You hope to see in the fashion world As a result of your influence in the next five to ten years. I guess we could say we're still token is right like it's still like a niece issue to. Oh look at the body issue or look at look at this runway show. We included three plus models. Hell amazing are we. you know. And so it's still kind of a talking point and the headline win. A plus size model does something. And so i think when plus size models and when plus is blocked models are being included consistently in campaigns and in fashion editorials like when our size there are being offered at every store. And it's not the exception but it is the rule. I think that's when it truly gonna feel like you know. There has been a shift in the tide where we are just included. And it's kind of the exception for us to not be included versus to be included working listeners. Who are struggling with self hatred and body image issues due to combat them. And what can listeners do to support people who are struggling with body image issues and self adrian. Yeah so i think a couple things but one thing i always start with is like if you are struggling to accept your body Following influencers or just people who look like you is life changing. And i know it sounds kind of superficial or not that important but i cannot emphasize enough how much representation matters and how much seeing someone who looks like you and who reflects your body and your experience is important so that even if when you're following some influences in the beginning you might even be judging them because a lot of us have internalized shame and internalize fat phobia so you might be like. Oh she should not be wearing that like why is she wearing a string bikini. You might have that initial gut reaction and that's because you have been conditioned to feel that way until like it's even more important for you to follow those people over time what you'll find. Is that like those reactions will dissipate because when you're seeing that on a day-to-day basis in your feed and you are normalizing that to yourself and realizing oh wow. These women like themselves in our allowing themselves to express themselves through fashion or through creativity and like enjoying their lives. And like when you seeing fat person do all the things you've been told they're not supposed to do and you see that consistently over time you give yourself that grace to and that permission to live that way as well.
