Kerri Larkin is the Fashion Project LIVE Magazine Inspiration Award winner (W2019)
Kerri's interview: I was diagnosed with autism back in 2017, I was scared to tell people because most people do not understand it and it was hard for me to process when I was diagnosed. I am now embracing it and I want to tell other people with autism whatever your talents, let them shine. I am 32 from Northampton and I started modelling 2 years ago. It started off with my extra work and I started looking for TFP photographers. I am now with a model agency called model management. I may be a model with autism but it doesn't define me, it's a part of me. Doing modelling is a way of showing people my sense of style & creativity and how I express myself. I have 2 cats, fifi and fudge and I do weightlifting. I enjoy taking photos of wildlife in my spare time. Also I love having tattoos, it started at 18 and I never stopped. I just feel that you can express yourself with body art as it tells a story.
My advice : No matter what disability you have or mental health . Live your dreams every day is about living in the moment just go for it .

Tianna Williams is the Fashion Project LIVE Magazine Photographer of the Season Award winner (W2019)
Tianna's interview: I am a maternity and newborn photographer based in Birmingham with a deep love for fashion photography. As a Mum of two children aged 3 and 1, I spend my time juggling parenting with the rollercoaster that is running a business. I am a registered nurse and midwife, which is very handy with the clients I usually have and of course is a strong reason for them choosing me as their photographer as they know I am safe and competent. I love photography, I probably spend time on it every single day. Learning, shooting, editing.
My speciality is maternity and newborn, I like to add a flair of fashion and colour to my work which my clients love. I am moving into the Jewellery Quarter next month to start the next chapter in my business life and I am so excited for where I will go next.
Last year, in 2018 I embarked on a passion project that I collaborated with four beautiful models, a talented make up artist, a bespoke jeweller and an incredible stylist - ATUU Embrace, who ethically sources materials from a small village in Ghana to create fashion wear and we sure did create some magic which went on to win incredible awards and accolades.
Someone said to me, feel the fear and do it anyway. I think it is an incredible statement and you know you won't have any regrets. Do what you can to live your passion and your dreams, know that you deserve it. Always remain humble and appreciate the journey as well as the lessons along the way.
Becky Rooke is the Fashion Project LIVE Magazine Make-up Artist of the Season Award winner (W2019)
Becky's interview: I'm 27 years old and I create glam to special effects on myself and clients and upload to social media. I've always been arty ever since I was young. I joined college and did a course for special effects and costume for tv and film. Ever since then I fell in love with make up. I can range from glam, bridal, bodypainting and special effects. I create looks on myself for social media and also a part time freelance make up artist. Always practice, never stop and no matter what others say, do what makes you happy. Upload your looks to social media as a portfolio as you never knows who's looking!
Sheryl English is the Fashion Project LIVE Magazine Nail Artist of the Season Award winner (W2019)
Sheryl's interview: I’m a salon owner working in the beauty industry for almost a decade. I love what I do because I’ve seen how it empowers women by allowing them to express themselves using their bodies as living canvases.
Beauty choices are as limitless as your imagination and we should strive to be innovative whilst simultaneously celebrating our natural beauty and individuality. There really are no steadfast rules. Be brave enough to be yourself in a world of trends. Own who you are and live unapologetically.
Maria Luxe is the Fashion Project LIVE Magazine Model of the Season Award winner (W2019)
Maria's interview: I’m a model, speaker, and body positive activist. I try my best to represent my community as I’m Arabian and you don’t see many Arab models in the media. Modelling has been a blessing and a gift to me. It truly is something that I can wake up to with a huge smile on my face. The best thing about modelling, it’s not just about looking pretty and being able to take a picture... it’s about the connection that you can have with people through an image. In my images I show big girls who have been outcasted (like myself) that we are beautiful, we can be happy, we can wear and be whoever we want to be.
I hope you take the time to sit with yourself and really listen to what you want in life. Life is so short whether we believe it or not. So it’s either you start living now, or you will always wish you lived!
WEAR THAT COLOUR.
BREAK UP WITH THAT GUY!
DELETE NEGATIVE ENERGIES FROM YOUR CIRCLE!
GO AND LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE!
Whoever told you, you can’t, Is a pathological liar.
Esra Aslan is the Fashion Project LIVE Magazine Fashion Influencer Award winner (W2019)
Esra's interview: I would like to start with a total honest opinion about myself. I Love myself and what I do! It is me and what makes me unique. My life is super chaotic and both of my professions are the opposite of each other. Being a model / Influencer and full time working in a pretty basic office job keeps my life balanced. I have this adventures vibe & "let's do it" attitude 95% of the time (lol god bless my friends). I have visited a gymnasium of economics and studied Fashion design in Düsseldorf at the PMD. After graduating I worked for a fashion company (GUESS ) as a Merchandiser. The job was okay if it only had a little bit more life to it. So I decided to do things I enjoy and ended up performing across Australia with a Circus Show called ' a touch of south America ' Now this was maybe a little extreme but just the right move to get to know myself. Now I am full time working in London my professions are Modelling and Business development / Brand coaching.
I mainly work with creative professionals. I help smaller businesses with their development and marketing strategies. Somehow I got into modelling when I was discovered by a Nutrition brand called Ironmaxx. I started as a fitness model and travelled through Germany, visited many exhibitions, got more and more sponsorships throughout the years. Moving to London I connected with more fashion brands and people from the music industry and started Modelling professionally.
My bill paying Job is in Canary wharf where I work for the well known LVMH Group. Now speaking of my talents, I am a very good cook (tested and proven 😜 ) I am skilled in aerial acrobatics such as aerial hoop or silks and dancing. Anything you do starts with you, make sure you Love yourself for who you are and what you do. Pretty, Successful, Famous those are rated by individuals you probably don't even care about. It's important how you see yourself because that is the way you will present yourself. I know a lot of models or Instagramers doubting themselves because of ridiculous reasons like, their butt is not big enough, their recent photo did not get enough likes, and when u go online all u see is adverts like Botox on sale, join my class make money etc. Okay this all might work for some people for me it is just taking space and peace from me.
All I am saying is ; Girlfriend you don't need a Kim K filler package for £500 to get you out there you need selflove, self respect and motivation in life. Personality attracts more then looks, that is just there until the next freshly Filler contoured face walks by. Your life is a reflection of yourself so take care of yourself first x
