16 and Changing the World: Natalie Nootenboom

@natalienootenboom

We featured Natalie on the blog when she made history during NYFWSS17 in September…..a couple weeks later, the world knows her name, not because she is the niece of a renown DJ. This trailblazer is not only just 16 but she was the first “plus size” model to walk the runway for Anna Sui. Now the world is in love with the message she chooses to bring to the table of fashion…..just take a look at all these news articles…. Billboard, Yahoo, The Huffington Post, Elle, Bazaar…she is everywhere. She is becoming a new face of body positivity, and we could not be more proud of her.

I asked Natalie if she wanted to add a comment, this is what she chose for us to hear today…

“Giving exposure to diversity allows us to make the world more accepting and to me that is what it means to be a body champion.” -Natalie Nootenboom
