I believe that life of authenticity is one of the basic building blocks to a woman living a whole life and even though we are bombarded with images that tells us we should somehow be different and only be a certain way. As I age, I try to be even more mindful to stay grounded in my own authenticity despite life constantly evolving with its challenges, hopes and dreams!
My hope is that Curva-Lish as a community and movement can always be a resource for you that constantly empowers you to live a life of authenticity in your style, with grace and with purpose!

"So often, we find ourselves in the position of having to choose between what the world wants to see from us and what feels most right to us. As an individual, and as a brand, I believe it is necessary to stay on top of what is happening in our lives, the industry, and the world around us, but to also be authentic in our responses to it.
That said, authenticity, while a respectable goal, is not always easy. In fact, it’s most often not. We live in a world ready to judge our every move, idea, design and desire, and often in black and white terms. Sometimes, it can feel as though we are being pressured to follow trends (in both design and behavior) instead of creating our own (as I instruct my clients to do). Quite frankly, I feel this kind of environment can cause conformity out of fear, a suffocating and dangerous scenario for an artist.
