“Spread Love, Not Hate” Plus Supermodel Carmina Suzanne Joins Photographer Silvana Denker in Worldwide BodyLove Campaign! — Who would have thought that the tiny German village of Niederhövels could have such a huge impact on the fashion industry?

And, of course, this simply wouldn’t be complete without the participation of plus supermodel Carmina Suzanne. Suzanne Fatta, AKA Carmina Suzanne, is an internationally published agency plus supermodel, as well as the founder and CEO of MODAL Productions, a fashion and music mentor-ship, diversity advocacy, life coaching, and career consulting company. 

These inspiring images have already been shared in People Magazine, Huffington Post, and Cosmopolitan Magazine.

She explains, “Top plus model and photographer Silvana Denker created the BodyLove project in part to help heal her own body love wounds, but by taking it to 30 cities in Europe, and now the USA, she’s helping women and men of all shapes, sizes, colors and ability levels to love themselves more too! I cannot wait to take part in this campaign in NYC, to literally walk the walk of self-acceptance, body love and healthy balance. I went through many of the same self-hatred issues as women of size in our society, but as a long-time sufferer of multiple chronic diseases (including MS) I also want to show people how much you can achieve with a ‘broken’ body.”
