2019 Dreamers & Sisters @ali.bernstein & @kayla_bern 💛

Ali and Kayla are biological sisters who are also best friends👯‍♀️ Ali was excited to walk the runway next to her sister because she has always supported her and pushed her to be true to herself inside and out. She greatly admires her ability to be comfortable with who she is and celebrate all the things that make her unique!! When Kayla found out about DreamWalk, she was super excited because she couldn’t believe there was actually a fashion show that makes you feel MORE comfortable in your skin, rather than defeated and judged. As a song writer, she has seen that music has a power of bringing people together. Just like music, FASHION is something with that same power and she hopes to see more diversity in it as a result🌎

Thank you for being a part of the @dreamwalkfashionshow, WE LOVE YOU✨

2019 Dreamer @thestellawilliams 💛

Stella is an advocate for the plus size apples🍎 Apple shape is one of the many shapes of being plus size, yet mainstream media only recognizes the typical pear shape. Her mission is to prove to others that we need to include all sizes as acceptable so we can celebrate who we are without the barriers of how we look interfere❤️ Stella has built up a very large following on various social platforms including @thestellawilliams 📱WAY TO GO GIRL!!!

2019 Dreamer @bribri018329_curvilinear 💛

Bri has been transgender for about 10 years, and it’s been a struggle. She’s suffered from mental attacks and even been overlooked for jobs because of her transgender identity which lead her to feeling depressed at times. Despite these battles, she’s a Dreamer and wanted to walk in the show to prove regardless of how you live your life, it is beautiful🌎

2019 Dreamer @haileyvalente 💛

At a young age, Hailey was diagnosed with an anxiety and mood disorder which would end up getting her sick frequently. She now takes medication to help her stay balanced, but realize that there’s so many people out there who suffer in silence because they are too afraid to get help. She wants to shed light on the fact that mental illness can affect anyone and that there is someone out there who will listen to you and help you get through it! Don’t give up hope and stay positive🌻

2019 Dreamer @milindamarie 💛

Milinda has struggled a lot over the last few years while working and going to school full time to be a nurse practitioner, but she conquered that struggle! After losing her grandma to cancer, her best friend to suicide, and her fur baby to old age, she realized life is short and to chase after your dreams💫 She is the definition of not giving up and wants to show all women out there that they can get through anything & still feel fabulous doing it🌼

2019 Dreamer @anitafellenbaum_ 🖤

Anita lost her mother at the age of 15 to an alcohol addiction and after that fell into a deep depression & addiction to alcohol herself as she used this method of pain relief. Later in her adulthood she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and psoriatic & rheumatoid arthritis which means she always has pain in her body. Thankfully, her husband and siblings continue to be an endless support system for her and she was able to complete a 40 mile bike tour in 2018🚴🏼‍♀️ She wants to show others that mental health and addiction can be managed and does not mean your life is not valuable if you have it.

2019 Dreamer @positively_me1 🖤

Jess grew up despising her body because she has always looked different to other people and has always had a hard time gaining weight. From the age of 5-11 years old hospital visits were normal to her and she had to have a feeding tube in hopes of helping her gain weight quickly. Because of this, she was bullied a lot in school and called “Ugly.” But a few years ago after going on 2 trips to different countries without her parents, she found her Body Confidence🙌🏻 She won an opportunity provided by DOVE UK to go to London for a conference, learned so much and came back to her brownies which are between the ages 8-10 about it all! Something that really upsets Jess is that even in 2020, people like her still are not represented in advertising. She believes that no matter who you are, we all can and should be represented in the media, so don’t ever think you aren’t good enough💪🏼

2019 Dreamer @thisis_tanslife 🖤

Tanecia is a working monther of 3 young children. Over the past few years she has become very passionate about getting healthy and living the most positive life. She takes her job as being a mother/role model very seriously for all of her kids, but especially towards her daughter to work on having a positive self-image. She knows that children do what their parents do, so she tries to show them that mental, physical and spiritual health are all equally important. Never forget that we are MORE than just our outward appearance!

2019 Dreamer @cordskyla 🖤

Cord has always wanted to walk a runway in drag. He used to teach runway and is an upcoming model and actor. Unfortunately he’s gone through a lot of hardships in life and lost his mom to breast cancer and his fiancé two months later. Knowing they both believed in him is what keeps him going every day and will never give up on his dream💪🏼

2019 Dreamer @crystalcave.style 🖤

Growing up, Crystal had a lifelong struggle with her weight leading to an eating disorder and depression. At the age of 17, she was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia which is a chronic pain condition. Over the past few years, she’s dropped her body shame and decided to go for her dreams💫 She launched an online style school, as well as a size inclusive clothing line, called @hellopoppyrow 👗 She hopes to inspire women to drop the stories around their bodies and start living life to the fullest!

2019 Dreamer @curvymodeltg412 🖤

Tiffany is a divorced mother of 2 boys and has used the last 5 years to finally begin to live!! During those years, she lost over 100lbs and regained her self-worth💓She wants to be an example for all those going through heartache, having feelings of hopelessness, or simply feel they aren’t good enough. She hopes they see her and realize that she was once at that place too and somehow found the strength within herself to get out & live life happy😃

2019 Dreamer @rachellenyc 💙

Rachelle wanted to be a Dreamer because she’s always been told she is too dark, too short, too quiet, and she wants little girls that look like her to feel included in life. She doesn’t want them to feel less because of the color of their skin and what society is telling them about beauty standards. It’s her time to speak to the world and bring awareness to mental illnesses, women’s rights and body positivity.

Caitlin suffers from a medical condition called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Eds is a genetic disorder with no cure, and effects all of her daily life activities. She hopes to inspire others with Eds or any other invisible illnesses that they too can feel sexy, carefree, and give their body some love, even if their body doesn’t love them back. She wants the world to see that those of us who are disabled are beautiful and can live lives bigger than their diseases🌎

Miiashaa was born with cerebral palsy and was bullied growing up in school. She is currently a miracle dancer at the Diane Moore Academy and a vocal student🎶 The hardest thing she has had to overcome is losing her daughter in 2012 at birth.

Sisters Create “Body Inclusive” Event

In 2016, sisters Alexis (Lexi) and Alyse Scaffidi were watching the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and talked about how badly they’d like to participate in the event even though they are only about 5 foot tall. They knew they’d never meet the brand’s strict model criteria and decided to create their own fashion show that embraced “body inclusivity”.

The first DreamWalk Fashion Show was held on July 2nd, 2017 at Hill Theatre Studio in Paulsboro, NJ. The models, known as “Dreamers”, included over 20 women of all shapes, sizes, ages, ethnicities and sexualities.

The 2018 DreamWalk Fashion Show was held Sunday, November 4th at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA. The 2ndannual event featured 65 Dreamers and various musical performers, including Zach Matari, Kicking Sunrise, and Owlcappella.

The 2018 event also included the first Dreamer Award, presented in memory of Andrea Castilla, who had been killed at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017. Although cut short, her goal was to create an organization that provided makeup to cancer patients undergoing treatment. Andrea’s sister, Athena, and her fiancé, Shane, accepted the award on her behalf.

The 2019 DreamWalk Fashion Show is slated to take place at Live Nation’s Gramercy Theatre in New York City on Sunday, September 15, 2019.

Thanks again for the opportunity! Before I could learn how to walk again, my body had to gradually be stretched back out from the contracted shape of being in a wheelchair for so long many years. With God's grace, extensive therapy consisting of exercise, wearing braces, mechanical equipment like pictured here, and never giving up, I am able to stand up straight and walk again with assistance of either a rollator or quad cane for shorter distances. On my website, thesurvivordiva.com there is video footage and photos chronicling the journey. I am still on cloud nine after being able to walk that runway. Especially at such a fast pace. I still can't get that "Mirror" song out of my head! I've been singing it all week.
