RunwayRiot is thrilled to announce a new effort to make the site even more inclusive by adding numerous contributors of different backgrounds, with different perspectives and yes, of different sizes. Up to this point, one gorgeous person and personality has dominated the site, Iskra Lawrence. When Iskra helped launch Runway Riot late last year, she was still an “up and coming” model and personality. Since that time (and in part related to her high profile role in launching this site!) she has become an international star with over 2.4M Instagram followers and the face of Aerie and NEDA.
Bottom line, being the Managing Editor of a site takes a lot of time and Iskra is now being pulled in many, many exciting directions. As a result she suggested that we try to make this a more community led effort with more faces, bodies and identities writing and creating videos for the site. While Iskra will continue to be involved with the site as a contributor, she will become one of many contributors as the site adds numerous additional voices to the site.
We will truly miss having our daily Iskra fix but are confident that this will keep Iskra involved and engaged while allowing the site to expand and grow.
So if you think you can help us create inspiring, interesting videos or written pieces please let us know! This is an exciting time for us and of course, for Iskra!
