The person I have decided to interview first has made the biggest impact on my most recent journey while in New York for Fashion Week.
Dr. Christopher Salute and Candice Christian at the SLiNK Magazine & 11 Honoré Brunch NYFW Event
I met Christopher through Instagram. He followed my page so I DMed him a thank you! I noticed that he was active in the plus community. So I asked….
Christopher is the CEO of Bold Magazine and Media Inc. Bold Magazine is an exclusive plus size activist media outlet. He is also a teacher and the assistant Dean of LIU.
I had to honor to be featured in the first print issue of Bold Magazine that went out a few weeks ago during their Love Yourself Weekend Event.
Chris was able to cover the 2 fashion shows I had the honor of hosting and he also invited me to SLiNK Magazine’s pop up brunch event for 11 Honorè. The event was nothing short of amazing!
Trying on luxury designer brands and networking galore was the highlight of the event. I got to talk to some amazing industry professionals who are very well noted and recognized.

I had left New York with a few more questions for Chris about his brand and the impact he hopes to make in the near future. So I thought, who would be better to interview FIRST then the LAST person I met involved in the plus size community.
