Stefaniya Makarova, renowned actress and model, is proud to launch a new community for petite models. As a petite model herself, at 5'4", Stefaniya has realized the lack of representation available for petite models in today's fashion industry. Despite the progress made to promote diversity and inclusivity within fashion, petite models continue to be underrepresented and excluded from fashion campaigns and runway shows.
In light of this awareness, Stefaniya Makarova has taken it upon herself to create the PETITE Movement – an acronym for Personality Empowerment To Intelligence To Enlightenment. This movement seeks to empower petite models by encouraging them to embrace their small stature as a part of their unique charm and beauty. With more education on the power of confidence and self-love, Stefaniya hopes that petite models will be given the opportunity to shine even more brightly in the world of fashion.
The goal of PETITE is to give petite models a voice and break down traditional beauty standards to embrace all heights, shapes, and sizes. PETITE emphasizes that it is important for us to accept our personalities without needing external validation and encourages us to reach spiritual growth through enlightenment.
Stefaniya Makarova hopes that by expanding accepted standards of beauty, those who feel like they don't fit society's ideals can know that there is much more than just height that determines one's beauty. Stefaniya believes everyone should have the opportunity to express themselves in whatever way makes them most comfortable, without feeling limited by opportunities or societal expectations.
Stefaniya Makarova urges other petite models like her to join her in bridging the gap between traditional beauty standards and true representation of all body types - no matter their size or shape - in the fashion industry. Stefaniya wants everyone out there struggling with their identity and self-acceptance issues, as well as those feeling underrepresented due to their size, to find confidence through PETITE’s mission. By being open about her own journey with self-discovery, Stefaniya Makarova hopes this will inspire others on theirs too!
PETITE is more than just a movement; it’s a community meant for people of all sizes who are ready for change – one which promotes acceptance and allows individuals everywhere the chance to flourish in their personal and professional lives.
