Portrait Positive

Our Portrait Positive campaign challenged perceptions of beauty through a series of striking images featuring 16 women with visible differences.

Our Portrait Positive campaign challenged perceptions of beauty through a series of striking images featuring 16 women with visible differences.

The campaign was a collaboration with world-renowned photographer Rankin and designer Steven Tai.

The women took part in the photoshoot with Rankin and during London Fashion Week 2018 some of the women appeared on the runway alongside models without visible differences, wearing pieces from Steven Tai’s new collection. The campaign received global media attention and brought the fashion industry face-to-face with its narrow standards of beauty.
