"Swap runway models for role models...check. Custom fit career clothes..check, check. And empower working women everywhere...done. Fashion designer, Carrie Hammer is shaking up the status quo when it comes to dressing the professional woman." - Forbes
Role Models Not Runway Models™ began with a fashion show and Carrie Hammer's line of clothing 3 years ago. Hammer decided to use Role Models in lieu of traditional runway models. Role Models who graced the CARRIE HAMMER runway and advertorials are CEOS, executives, and incredible women, as well as the first ever model who happened to be in a wheelchair.
Role Models Not Runway Models™ has been credited for kickstarting the body positive movement in the fashion and beauty industries and now works hand in hand with brands and the Role Model network to help change the way women are perceived globally!
