Hilda

I have always believed that the full figured African black woman has never truly been celebrated and showcased as an icon of beauty, in the past, and even now. African women are rising up and demanding to have a space at the table, from fashion, to politics, to business, and all other spheres of societal life.

In acknowledgement of the unique beauty that is often overlooked, I have created a concept that will speak to the wondrous beauty that is the African woman. In collaboration with Neomi Nganga, I have brought to life the illustrations of Duane Bryer, that popularized Hilda, the plus size pinup girl who graced many a calendar from the 1950s through the 1980s.
