"Straight/Curve"- Challenging the Status Quo
Straight/Curve a new documentary to be released next year, tackles "female body image" and the act for change regarding size, race and age in media and the fashion industry. As we know, the fashion industry has attempted to make strides when it comes to diversity--including individuals who somehow fall outside of what is considered normal. There have been campaigns in regards to body image and accepting your beauty regardless of size, etc. However, has it been enough change in the industry where individuals different in size, age and color may feel accepted as much as their peers? Straight/Curve puts these prominent individuals on the forefront where they tackle these issues in a fight for diversity in an industry where everyone yearns to be apart of, but may not feel that they are.
If that doesn't inspire you, then this shoot will. A photo shoot who worked alongside the soon to be released documentary showcases the beauty of diversity in age, race and size.
