True Beauty Tuesday:Khoudia Diop

 

When I originally started True Beauty Tuesday a few years back I wanted to to be more that just beauty products (there is nothing wrong with that), but like I have always said my goal is to celebrate, educate, and empower HUE to HUE.

There are times in your life when you come across a beauty so amazing to the eye that you just wan to cry. It happened for me when I say Khoudia Diop. Never in my life have I seen a woman hold such beauty. NEVER. Her melanin skin makes me value my skin tone even more than ever and while I am sure she has experienced her fair share of rude people I want to take this moment to send nothing but love to her.Screen Shot 2016-10-05 at 4.33.45 PM.png

And while the number of diverse models increased on the runway slightly fashion week this year the industry still has a long way to go.

The lack of diversity has lead me to ponder how could we as a society change this? As a fashion merchandising graduate who holds an advance degree in media I’ve wondered if the industry wants to change on its own? Or if we as consumers of both fashion and media have to be the agents of change? Where and how to we start?  I believe that it starts with us….so
