The Beauty & Strength in Diversity using Fashion

The Beauty & Strength in Diversity using Fashion

Hi lovely,

This post is sponsored by CaseApp, a company that lets you design a personalised phone-case or laptop skin. They also have a huge array of popular designs that transform the experience of using your phone or laptop. Only condition is that they must be following  @metrogypsie and us @caseapp on instagram, then leave a comment of your favourite look, your location and ‘personalised phone case’ below. 

Also giving away the black Zara bag below, leave a comment with your fav look, location and ‘bag’  if you want that. #bestwishes.

The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. These can be along. the dimensions of race or other ideologies. (click here for the StyleMeAfrica feature)

 

While diversity is often a term used to refer specifically to cultural differences, diversity applies to all the qualities that make people different. Inclusion is the deliberate act of welcoming diversity and creating an environment where all different kinds of people can thrive and succeed. Diversity is what you have. Inclusion is what you do.

 

In a bid to explain diversity and inclusion in my immediate surrounding (geographically and electronically), I decided to hit up some girls to further explore using fashion & style.

I chose 9 different style themes and matched them to these 9 ladies from various sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, ethnicity and socio-economic status. I was going to photograph each style theme with them.

 

I would share some lessons learned from my 10-girl inclusive style task

 

You communicate and influence people differently. What works for one might not work for the other. 

– Some people make life easier. 

– A few see competition in everything. 

– One must read between the lines. 

– Finally, there is beauty in diversity.

 

I hope these photos inspire you;

    Favourite look is Bold Boots. The print boots gives her the Urban-Afro look. Great Mix of colours on the 2nd look
