So, I wrote a tongue in cheek post yesterday about Christian Fashion Week that generated more virtual chatter than I expected. Apparently there’s a good number of you out there (enough to fill out the rosters of the entire American and National League East) who feel an almost evangelical negativity about my clothing choices. Whatever.
Of course, that got me to, you know, read what Christian Fashion Week was actually about- something I hadn’t bothered with before (this is a blog after all not the NY Times.) The mission behind CFW is to advocate for women in the modeling industry who often feel pressure to objectify themselves or jeopardize their career. That’s actually a laudable, Christian goal and now, egg on my face, I feel like a jerk for making fun.
So there’s my shout out.
PS: CFW is in Florida this week so I can’t attend. It wasn’t clear from their invite whether they just wanted me to come or to come and participate as a model. Probably the former but if the latter, here is my submission for the swimwear exhibition.
