Sexy & Beautiful

Tell us a little about Voluptuous. What is it about? 

Throughout my life, my life philosophy has been "all women desire to be sexy & beautiful". Voluptuous was created to include the forgotten curvy women in fashionable trendy sexy clothing.

What is the change that you would like to bring to the world?

A woman is a woman, no matter her shape or size. There is no perfect woman or preferable woman. We are all special in our own perfect unique way. 

What drove you to start Voluptuous?

I was once almost 300lbs, so shopping for my size in trendy clothing was impossible. Then I became a plus size model, I was forced to see and experienced how the fashion industry treats curvy women and wanted to change that.

Has anything changed since you started? 

The world has gotten a little friendly towards curvy women, but we still have a long way to go. I believe whatever is on trend should be made available for all women, not just a particular size. How do you think being a woman of colour has impacted your journey? Back in my days, a plus size women was insignificant, also being a black woman I did not exist. I fought a long war of making sure I was visible in the Canadian fashion scene. However when I was seen being black became my hindrance. 

Have you had a remarkable breakthrough or a win that you would like to share with our readers?

I never gave up! I never stop believing and fighting. I had my empire striped from me, because of lack of support and how I seen in the retail environment in Canada. Brick by brick i am building it back.
