What's your current fashion trend obsession?

Love biker shorts

Do you have any advice for designers in the plus-size industry when it comes to look, feel, and fit?

Plus size/curvy don’t all come in one size. Some of us have apple shapes or pears, we need a variety of different styles and cuts to jeans and dresses as well!

Defending a hand on the hip to accentuate your waist

Must-have fashion accessory?

Shoesss and handbag always

What advice would you give to women hoping to get into the industry?

To never give up or let one bad day or shoot affect you outlook as a whole ! It’s a process and one that takes a lot of hard work and growth. To not be so hard on yourself!

Anything else you want to share about yourself?

I love the beach.

Describe your favorite gown from the shoot and why you feel that way.

One black mermaid dress I wore along with a black boa. I left so beautiful and empowered. That dress really showed my curves beautifully.

Loved all of the mermaid style dresses and of course the glitz and glam of them all!

Tell us a funny story from the shoot.

I probably got a better workout running in and out of all the dresses than at the gym.
