Još jedan svjetski modni brend za svoju novu kampanju odabrao transrodnog modela

Nije Victoria`s Secret jedini brend koji daje prilike i transrodnim modelima. Za novu kampanju po prvi put u svojoj povijesti izabrao je transrodnu manekenku i jedan od vodećih brendova modne i beauty industrije – francuski Chanel. 

Teddy Quinlivan dirnuta je Chanelovom odlukom, posebice zato jer je u djetinjstvu bila ismijavanja zbog svojeg izbora.

“Ne plačem više kad sam tužna, ali ipak ću pustiti suzu u trenucima osobne pobjede. Ovo je bio takav trenutak. Moj cijeli život je borba, a Chanel mi je dao priliku i kad još nisam javno otkrila da sam transrodna osoba. Znala sam da ću otkrivanjem onoga što zaista jesam otkazati neke suradnje i čak sam mislila da ću prestati raditi i za Chanel. Vrlo sam ponosna što kroz Chanel Beauty mogu predstavljati moju zajednicu”, napisala je Teddy.

💄CHANEL BEAUTY💄 -I find I don’t cry anymore when things are sad, but isn’t it interesting when we shed tears in moments of triumph. This was one of those triumphant cry moments for me. My whole life has been a fight. From being bullied at school consistently, kids threatening to kill me and going into graphic detail how they were going to do it, my own father beating me and calling me a fagot, to receiving industry blowback after speaking publicly about being sexually assaulted on the job… This was a victory that made all of that shit worth it. I had walked 2 shows for Chanel while I was living in stealth ( stealth meaning I hadn’t made my trans identity public yet) and when I came out I knew I’d stop working with some brands, I thought I’d never work with the iconic house of Chanel ever again. But here I am in Chanel Beauty Advertising. I am the first openly trans person to work for the house of Chanel, and I am deeply humbled and proud to represent my community. The world will kick you down, spit on you, and tell you you’re worthless. It’s your job to have the strength to stand up and push on, to keep fighting, Because if you give up then you will never experience the tears of triumph. Thank you to everyone who made this dream a reality! @nicolaskantor @shazmakeup @sebastienrichard1 @casadevallbelen

Za razliku od Valentine iz Victoria`s Secret koju su svi od malena smatrali djevojčicom iako je rođena kao dječak 1996. godine i nije imala problema s prihvaćanjem u društvu, Teddy je bila ismijavana, no imala je najvažniju podršku – svoje majke.

Hormonsku terapiju započela je uzimati sa 17 godina. Osim Chanela nosila je revije svjetskih poznatih dizajnera poput Prade, Diora, Fendija, Guccija i drugih.

Kad je otkrila da je transrodna u rujnu 2017. godine mnogi su je odbili za suradnju, no istodobno su je prihvatili modni divovi kao što je Chanel.
