As London Fashion Week came to an end last week, a particular model left a major positive impression: Adwoa Aboah.
The British fashion model, who is also an activist was recently crowned LFW’s ambassador for Positive Fashion, Diversity and Model Health, also gave a speech at London Fashion Week’s opening ceremony that really set a precedence to the fashion industry inclusively.
Moreover, after a lot of revelations that have been brewing on models being abused, Aboah talked about these new Models First Initiative, which was launched alongside the British fashion council and British fashion model association to protect models as a whole. “As a woman and a model, these efforts provide me with a growing sense of comfort and confidence that we are taking the right initial steps towards systematically changing the way we collectively work to protect the safety and rights of models in the industry,” she said.
In addition, while taking into account the strive for diversity within the fashion industry, Aboah further discussed and challenged The fashion industry and the individuals within the fashion industry to use your voices to make the system better as well as stressing the importance of representing different races, body types, religions, sexualities, and gender identification within the industry.
She’s the epitome of a queen harnessing her inner magic.
