ICONS IN THE MAKING
Celebrating young women who take chances using style, creativity, and authenticity to drive progress for their generation.
Keep moving forward. Keep moving forward.
LA-based concept artist.
"As a Korean-American female, I want to pave the way for future generations and exemplify how women are fully capable of working in video games/film/TV. I also want to share my story and design diverse characters for others to look up to, as I remember not having any female Asian role models growing up."
Defy the stereotypes. Defy the stereotypes.
Indian-American Orange-County native. Photography, film, and writing.
"I want to make documentaries on women in India. I want to make films and have that side of Indian women brought to light in America because I hardly see anything like that. Also being able to model for something and have a little Indian girl look at that and be like, hey, that’s an Indian girl, maybe I could do something like that too, because I never had that growing up."
Put yourself first, always. Put yourself first, always.
Hawthorne-born artist, activist, and founder of a non-profit called LETS.GIVE.
"I am a mental health and self-love advocate. I am Afro-Indigenous and active in both elements of my lineage. I am spiritual, I stand on stages as a spoken word artist & activist, a workshop creator & requested panelist, but most of all, I’m human, boldly and unapologetically brown & a lover of my journey."
Naomie "Morenita" Coronado
Be strong, work hard and learn to lead.
Wardrobe stylist, brand consultant, and photographer who shot this campaign.
"I want my work to inspire young, aspirational women to have an opinion and not be sorry about it. I was lucky enough to grow up with a mother who instilled so much confidence in me—if I can share even the tiniest bit of that, I would consider myself ‘successful."
Unapologetically bold, always authentic.
