Plus-size model Olakemi is changing the narrative of body positivity and image through her work in fashion.
Editorials, runways, and commercials, you name it and Olakemi has done it. The England born model was scouted four years ago and made it to the final five, since then her career soared!
Her repertoire includes creating the Plus is Diverse campaign – celebrating different racial and ethnic plus size women – and modeling in campaigns for Calvin Kelvin. She believes that, “Women need to be able to relate to the model,” because, “How can you envision yourself in an item of clothing, if you can’t even slightly relate to the model wearing them?” Olakemi aims to keep pushing for fair representation in the media for all things and to change negative narrative against women.
