Skorch WINS at Portland Fashion & Style AwardsWednesday, October 10, 2012
This post is dedicated to the team of SKORCH Magazine!
I think I'm still in shock. Truly. The good kind, the kind that takes all words away from you and clears your mind completely because after years of pushing forward with the confidence crusade of body empowerment, we win. WE WIN!! Skorch was recognized as Best Fashion Publication at the Portland Fashion & Style Awards. We won against 3 other straight sized publications and the plus size one took it home??!!!!
My mind went so blank I could barely breath, thought my heart was going to explode from nerves! I just want to thank from the bottom of my heart our Editor-in-Chief Tiffany Kaelin Knight, our Executive Fashion Editor Bella Styles who's been with Skorch since day 1, and Jovanna Reyes the visionary behind Skorch TV....Skorch is the ultimate collaboration and this award goes to so many women. I'm so blessed to have such a great team and send my thanks to YOU/THEM! Thank you to PFSA for including our publication and Executive Producer Tod Foulk for always supporting our mission.
This night was a HUGE night as not only did SKORCH win, so did Keri Atkins for best plus size model!! (pictured below) Keri has done so much work towards empowering women and I'm honored to know her and have worked with her. She is the future of the movement, so excited for her.
Here are some photos and a video I put together of the night. And can I just say that I truly felt like a MILLION dollars in my dress that Torrid was so great to overnight to me, saving my LIFE! Thank you Torrid, I'm forever grateful! This dress is UTTER PERFECTIONNNNNNN. And, thank you to my bestie and partner in crime Mandy Allen for always being by my side and taking care of me, I love you!
God. I have the best job ever. I love you Team Skorch!!
