Empowering Lingerie Campaign Fights For More Diversity: 'Fashion shouldn't discriminate us'

Over the last few years, there has been a movement in the fashion industry, demanding more diversity and inclusivity. Though cheered on by many, the world of fashion still has a long journey to go before becoming equal to people in every shape, size, and color.

The famous Victoria Secret fashion show, for instance, is not inclusive at all. Their show consists of skinny models that walk on the catwalk dressed like angels. Plus-size model, Robyn Lawley, decided to stand up against corporations like Victoria Secret and show them everybody can be an angel. Together with a group of diverse models, they held their own 'Victoria Secret fashion show,' with luxurious lingerie and real angel wings.

In collaboration with the British fashionable Simply Be, Lawley and her co-models started their campaign to make the clothing industry a more diverse place. With their slogan 'We’re All Angels' they want the world to know that fashion has to be made for everybody. "Fashion shouldn't discriminate us, it should empower us," they write. "Simply Be Free, Fierce and Fearless! #morethanourbodies"
