The Polynesian Exchange Plus Model Edition Sets Out To Empower Curvy Models Of All Ethnicities
Diversifying the plus size fashion industry is a mission that all of us can support. To show our readers that plus size models come in all shapes and sizes, we featured a petite plus model on our 2014 February cover. A collective of plus size Polynesian models from LA are challenging the industry’s myopic view of beauty as well.
The Polynesian Exchange Plus Model Edition features three plus size models who have come together to capture their underrepresented beauty, and address the fashion industry’s void of Polynesian models and limited representation of plus size models. Models Veronica Pome’e, Tracy Feagiai McNeal and Priscilla Katerena are captured wearing fashion forward looks that can be used to accentuate the beauty of full figured women.
The photo shoot was sponsored and produced by MKPR Branding Agency and it was shot by Kem West of Kem West Photography.
