What we do?

The most difficult barriers to overcome are often the ones you erect for yourself, so say yes to

yourself and then see what happens. This is the mindset we want to inculcate into the minds of

all women, especially those wanting to make a career in modelling. We also want to mentor and guide these women as well as train them to be their Best.

Ravishing Fashionistas is not your typical modelling agency that looks for size-zero models with ‘perfect’ hair and skin to walk the ramp at Fashion Shows and Weeks. Instead, we are here to

break that trend by bringing inclusiveness and ‘realness’ to the modelling and beauty world.

We have a four-pronged strategy to accomplishing this objective that includes:

Offering the resources, platform, and/or confidence needed by young, middle-aged and older women to overcome their fears and break the stereotypes in the beauty, fashion, and related industries .

Empowering women suffering from domestic violence to not only take a stand against their aggressors, but also to confidently venture out into the world to explore the numerous opportunities that await them in beauty, fashion, and other fields .

Helping women looking to make a career in the modeling or fashion industry to grow and become the best versions of themselves through the right guidance, mentoring, and Training .

Using partnerships and collaborative events to support local women in business to help them grow and flourish; the objective is to help women-owned/run local businesses so they can grow to a level where it is possible for them to support other, deserving women in need by providing employment or helping them in their careers/business ventures .
