The Black Model phenomenon

The Black Model phenomenon


 When you have a predominantly Asian American cast, which is very rare, all the people get to be people," said by "Beef " star Ali Wong. “So when you reference who your favorite character is, you won’t say, ‘Oh, it’s the Asian one.’”

When I read this quote I realized this is exactly what I want to do with Lulo. Many people have asked me all the time why the models are predominantly Black women. My intention is to normalize the fact that we are all people and that even a black model can represent you even if you are not black.
