THE FOUNDER

Alexis Lockhart

At the age of 12, sitting in the front row of the EBONY FASHION FAIR, Alexis was inspired by beautiful women who were confident, strong, and most importantly, looked like her. At that moment, she understood the power of representation and started the journey of creating a platform to do just that. Today, that platform has grown to  produce several fashion experiences, giving hundreds of diverse models, an opportunity at a modeling career with their voices heard and empowered to inspire.

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style"
