Girlgaze teamed up with Detroit based brand, Shinola, to highlight five extraordinary women who are using their work to advance their communities and society for their Fall ’17 line of watches, bags, and jewelry.
This fall I partnered with @shinola and @girlgazeproject on their #girlswithpurpose campaign that showcases womxn artists using their work for social change. I still think so much of what is marketed to us reaffirms the problematic notion that our value comes solely from our looks; instagram and visual media only continues to further compound this; I love fashion as a tool for self-expression and I love fitness as a tool for longevity but I don’t like feeling like we should have to spend a disproportionate amount of time on our looks rather than further developing our crafts; to that end it has been refreshing to see brands actively start to find creative ways of marketing alternative standards of beauty by showcasing the work, passions and skill sets of diversely talented womxn. I am interested in being part of that change so here I am. Love on this October Friday. 🏽🏽🏽#thefutureisfemale #ownyourvoice #girlgazexshinola
