By: Desirae Holland

Bullied for being plus-sized, Egypt Ufele, also known as “Ify,”decided to change the conversation about her image through fashion. The 10-year-old turned the negative soundbites about her weight into something positive by creating a plus-sized fashion line that represented her. In a recent interview with Today, the young fashion designer expresses how her line started with creating Barbie Doll clothes with a needle and thread and developed into something bigger when she discovered her grandmother’s sewing machine. Recently having the opportunity to showcase her line, Chubbiline during New York’s Fashion Week, the young designer is thrilled that the narrative about her is very different now.
