Hailing from California, our next ART BISH artist profile is model Ashourina Washington. Taking pride in her Assyrian and Black culture, Washington had planned on becoming a role model for girls of color in the television world by developing her own show. But as life has it, things don’t always go to plan. After juggling several jobs, she ended up taking on her dream in a whole new avenue, modeling. Working under Natural Models LA, Washington has worked with an array of names like Nasty Gal, Danielle Bernstein’s Macys summer collection, Savage x Fenty, SKIMS, House of CB, and Target all while advocating for true, authentic diversity in the world of fashion, beauty, and entertainment. It’s individuals like her that continue to break down the social “standards” of who and what success looks like.
You can learn more about how to make your passions a reality at next Wednesday’s ART BISH Digital Festival at 5 PM//8 PM EST! More info on the event here. Be on the lookout tomorrow for our next ART BISH profile!
