The Girl with Curves - Tanesha Awasthi
Earlier this year, Sports Illustrated removed a major barrier when they featured Ashley Graham on the cover of their annual Swimsuit Issue. The reason that this was so major is because Ashley Graham is considered in the fashion world to be "plus sized". She's gone on to grace the cover of many other magazines this year as well. However, the celebration of women in various sizes didn't begin this year. There are a number of women who've been working to open the eyes of designers, retailers and the public at large for a few years now - and of the more successful at it is Tanesha Awasthi. Fashion Blogger, model, designer and role model - she's been making the case for several years and her voice is highly respected. We spoke with her about her clothing line, how she built her loyal fan base and advice for anyone considering following in her shoes. You can read the entire interview here.
