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.

Playing into February’s theme of love an atmosphere of intimacy  was created with the art exhibit Intimacy. Whether it be the intimate thoughts that consume the boundaries of our mind, the warmth granted with the embrace of a hug, or the personal space that gets invaded with the closeness of a kiss, a group of artist came together to illustrate their interpretations of intimacy.
