For many young women in today’s society, beauty amounts to how many likes and shares a photo posted on social media receives. Taking the podium in New York Beyonce Knowles Carter, the wife of one of Rap music’s finest, Sean ‘Jay Z’ Carter, reminded designers of the power they carry in what they do.

“I want to say thank you to every designer who works tirelessly to make people think they can write their own story. Y’all are fairy godmothers, magicians, sculptors, and sometimes even our therapists. I encourage you to not forget this power you have or to take it lightly. We have the opportunity to contribute to a society where any girl can look at a billboard or magazine cover and see her own reflection. Soul has no color, no shape, no form. Just like all of your work, it goes far beyond what the eye can see. You have the power to change perception, to inspire and empower, and to show people how to embrace their complications, and see the flaws, and the true beauty and strength that’s inside all of us.”
