“Testimony of Inner Strength” Today was the first time I have ever experienced a Brand that wanted absolutely no editing, no fakeness just the real deal!! And I LOVE IT!! I understand the need for editing in Photoshop, its main purpose is to take away any attention grabbing parts of the model so the viewer can focus on the product. The Downside to that is 99% of woman don’t have flawless skin in fact we are all different, diverse and beautiful in our own way. I am proud to announce these untouched images from a Brand called Upperclass Apparel and hope to see that this starts a trend to show woman’s strengths and beauty in what many call their flaws. Special thank you to Moragan Elkin for being brave enough to tell us her story through her scars <3.
