Plus size model,Ashley Graham and Her Mother, Linda, team up for a swimsuit shoot by Swimsuits for All’s Power of the Journey campaign. Ashely said;
“[My mother] was with me from the start and helped me through all the trials and tribulations it took to get to this point, so being able to have her actually in front of the camera with me and modeling my designs felt like such a surreal moment,” shared Graham on the phone from Los Angeles. “When they came to me with the [concept,] I was like, ‘That is such a good idea, don’t even ask her—I’m going to tell her! She has no choice!’ ”
Ashley’s ,mother who have never put on a string bikini said;“I had never put on a string bikini. Ever,”“Here I am at 53 years old and in a hot pink string bikini [on set], but I was kind of in love with that swimsuit!”
“It was fun because when we were [in Bali] taking pictures in our pool, Ashley was giving me pointers and tips, and so when this opportunity showed up, it was like, ‘Okay, let’s do this!’ It was so comforting having her there, making me feel comfortable—it’s funny how the tables have turned.”
Ashley also spoke about the Moroccan themed shoot;“What I want is for women my mother’s age to feel empowered and to know that they too can look just as hot in a one-piece, a two-piece, or string bikini,” says Graham. “I believe that beauty is beyond, age, race, or size, and it’s not a trend—at every stage of your life, you can feel beautiful.”
