Fashion is a language that is universal for everyone, however inclusivity has not always been in that definition. More and more we are starting to see brands recognize and showcase people that are more diverse in many ways… and are loving it in the process!

Ashley Stewart is a well known plus size retailer and has been the face of representation in this market for over 20 years. It would be no surprise that Ashley Stewart herself would host an annual event searching for the next 2018 Ashley Stewart winner.

Over the weekend Kings Theater in Brooklyn was the place to be to take part in all the festivities. This annual quest is the epitome of highlighting what it means to take pride in a persons personality, confidence and resilience.

The night kicked off with a star studded pink carpet where the eight contestants scouted from all over the country had the opportunity to give their perspectives of what it was like being part of this process.

Other notable names like Loni Love, SWV, Lala Anthony and more walked the carpet for pictures and moments to express gratitude for Ashley Stewart and what ans event like this means for the culture.

Prior to announcing the winner the crowed was blessed with performances from MC LyteSWV and Naughty by Nature with DJ Kid Capri who all kept the crowd going.

This annual event exemplifies exactly what we need more of, highlighting everyday women in their normal lives to show them that they are fabulous too!
