To all the rude keyboard warriors out there, maybe you should second think the next time you slam Jesinta Campbell’s fashion choices, or anyone’s for that matter. Just when we thought we couldn’t love Jesinta any more she uploads the most relatable Instagram post about women’s fashion. We thought her custom Camilla and Marc dress was to die for but we understand it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. However, Instagram is not an opportunity for people to voice their negative opinions.
With a photo in her stunning dress, Jesinta captions it with the importance of women being able to wear what they want. She speaks about fashion designer, Tala Raassi who went as a 16 year old was thrown into jail for 5 nights then sentenced to 40 lashes across her back simply for wearing a skirt and t-shirt.
Fashion is freedom and girl, we couldn’t agree with you more!
"I want to empower women to follow their dreams, I want to empower them to wear what they desire and not to be judged or punished. And thats where my point of the story comes from. Do what you want, follow your dream and wear what you want.” – Tala Raassi Fashion never really used to mean much to me until l met a young designer, Tala Raassi. She grew up in Tehran, the capital of Iran, where women don’t always have a choice in what they wear. During a swimwear fitting I asked her the reason behind her career and how she came to be a designer and work in the world of Fashion. At 16 years old, Tala was invited to a house party with her friends. What should have been a fun and very normal experience for any teenager was something that changed Tala’s life forever. Not long into the evening, Government officials stormed into the house and arrested her alongside other guests. In Tahran, being uncovered as a women around the opposite sex was unacceptable so she was thrown into jail for 5 nights then sentenced to 40 lashes, across her back, because she was wearing a skirt and a t-shirt. It was through this experience that Tala realised that fashion is freedom. Being able to chose what you want to wear as a woman is a freedom that not all women have access to. From the day I met Tala my lack of thought and care for fashion grew into a strong passion. I am proud to work in the fashion industry and promote self expression and freedom of choice. Every day that I get I up I am grateful that I can chose whatever the hell I want to wear without the fear of punishment or violence or imprisonment. Tala, Thank you for opening my eyes to how important fashion and the freedom of choice is for all women!! ❤️⚡️✌?️ Pic @aplphotography
