The Colored Girl is an agency dedicated to disrupting the status quo through fashion and beauty. What does this really mean? The Colored Girl essentially creates the campaigns and finds the beautiful chocolate skin models you have been seeing pop up in more and more common place adverts now. To celebrate their first year anniversary, founders Victory Jones & Tori Elizabeth collaborated with 13 gorgeous melanin Queens for their “Full Bloom Campaign” which is meant to embrace black women of all shades, sizes and all their similarities and differences.
