Jordana Hazan of A Cosmo Life - came up with the "Fashion Against Bullying" concept for New York Fashion Week, because she was bullied from the age of 12 to 17 due to being chubby and not having perfect image. Due to the mean words, she went through anorexia and had a lot of self esteem issues. Luckily, she overcame the anorexia and became a stronger person , realizing that beauty is within all of us in different ways.
Recently, Jordana became pregnant with a baby girl - now 16 weeks pregnant - the thought of her daughter being bullied and Jordana decided that she had to do something to make a difference. This is where "Fashion Against Bullying" by A Cosmo Life came to mind.
Jordana sated, "I want to thank everyone who made this incredible evening possible. I plan on taking this concept all over the country throughout various Fashion Weeks. I want to specifically thank my family for always being supportive of me and my fiancée Marcelo Guimaraes, who has made me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world everyday we have been together".
Her next project being launched is: A Cosmo Family - a blog talking about families living a cosmopolitan lifestyle. More to come!
