The definition of beauty has changed over the years and cultures, almost as much as fashion has evolved. However, this is the first time in history where, slowly but surely, diversity is being considered beautiful. Come celebrate it with us, via our newest fashion editorial!
COVER STORY: Jejune Magazine got the opportunity to meet with the the international top fashion model, champion Muay Thai Fighter, and Women Empowerment/Body Activist, Mia Kang to talk to us about being a non traditional size in a very small world.
Jejune had the pleasure to spend a day with Phil Sullivan, model and humanitarian. When Phil first moved to NYC, he found himself homeless for a short period of time, and that, with the help of a model friend, Shane Duffy, just started his desire to give back to the homeless community.
Unlike many models, Summer had a mission from the beginning of her modeling career. She wanted to only be the face of causes that she felt good about... now she does this with the help of her beloved chicken, Kippee!
As our society is constantly debating between being too politically correct or down right racist, the fashion industry, despite being celebrated for being forward thinking, is shockingly behind the times. There are more white models than any other race, and Asian models are a huge minority, particularly Asian men. When Asian men are represented, they are often showcased as exotic or androgynous, almost never as sexual beings. Well, we here at Jejune feel that Scott Neslage ( @scottneslage), from Soul Management, shot by Harold Mindel (@harold.mindel), will help change how the fashion world looks at Asian men!
Renee is a lifelong animal lover and nature enthusiast, who uses her beautiful face for good, working as an eco/sustainability fashion model (represented by Wilhelmina) and blogger. Jejune had the pleasure to photograph and learn more about her.
