September 4, 2017 | D&LSouth London beauty, Leomie Anderson, is no stranger to New York and Milan runways and we are just as excited as she is to see her walk in the upcoming Victoria’s Secret fashion show!
Although this isn’t the first time she has walked in the huge lingerie brands show, it’s not always guaranteed that you will be asked to return, so you understand what a privilege this is, right?
Leomie is such a bubbly and fun-loving young lady who continues to use her social platform to ‘promote’ her brand and doesn’t she look amazing in her featured campaigns; Nike, Yeezy and most recently Fenty Beauty to name a few.
She has made it clear that she wants to empower women through fashion and she is certainly making it her mission to bring this to fruition.
The lack of diversity and in the fashion industry has always been something Leomie has been passionate about and would like brands and media to include more women of colour in their campaigns.
She is working on contributing to making a change through her brand, Leomie Anderson the Project the Purpose (LAAP). They promote ’empowering women and promoting confidence, positivity and unity through fashion and creating another platform to voice women’s issues’.
Plus, with Rihanna as her biggest inspiration and hopes for her mother to retire next year as her motivation to work hard every day, she really is one to watch and a force to be reckoned with.
We wish Leomie all the best in her upcoming Victoria’s Secret walk and we will leave you with her words from a recent interview that stuck in our minds…
“I definitely want to continue pushing the narrative that women’s voice deserve to be heard by getting LAPP out to even bigger audiences.
“I’ll be hosting more events and workshops this year in order to bring young women together; I feel one thing that we are desperately in need of is more initiatives to bring together women.
“Support one another, don’t allow anyone to tell you that someone is your competition when really we are all in our own lanes.”
