“Be Good to Yourself”

Naomi Shimada tells you anything (yet)? This can be changed! The plus-size model is one of the faces of the new collection Nike beautiful x powerful with the lifestyle company celebrating femininity in all its facets. What does body positivity, what would be the ideal world of fashion and what is Naomi’s message to all women out there

She is 1.80 tall and wears a dress size 44 has a look of madness. You gotta love Naomi Shimada, how in her mini skirt and her sweatshirt – both in bright orange – sits in front of one and talks about images of women, perfection and drawer thinking. This woman is not to be overlooked – and she will not be overlooked. “I’ve never been in a certain drawer: I’m Asian, but not Petite!” “Today I know: you should just take its flaws and its strengths make them.”

The way to this recognition was long. Naomi Shimada was an ordinary model – she had her first photo shoot at the age of 13. As she got older, her body also changed. In her last years of work as a “normal” model, she wore size 36/38 and initially desperately tried to fight and to take off. She trained and made even the controversial water lemon cleanse of cayenne pepper while she told everyone that she just detoxe, where they obviously was that she wanted to lose weight. “As a model you can not just breakfast and eat scrambled eggs with Bacon and laugh, because you hate yourself the entire time you. I no longer wanted that this kind of thinking determines my whole life. I am getting out of the model industry and started with 22 years back to work – as a plus-size model”. Today is Naomi documentary filmmaker ( it’s her first film “straight/curve” website, which can be seen from spring 2017) successfully in their job, and calls himself a body positivity activist. What exactly means that betrayed us Naomi in the interview.

Our site: They refer to themselves as “Body Positivity Activist”. What does this mean for you?

Naomi Shimada: To represent what is man. Is not put in a drawer to let or want – to fit in a drawer and to feel good. I wear the dress size for the average woman, and that with pride.

Our site: want to spread what message than as a body positivity activist?

Naomi Shimada: Live, without constantly feeling to have to declare yourself to others, no matter what size you wear. I am who I am. My dress size stopping me not, to ensure that what I want. I define myself – not my dress size.

Our site: The fashion world often only the extreme shows “super thick” or “thin”. What would your vision look like?

Naomi Shimada: She would depict people of all races, all ages and of all sizes. Diversity makes it really exciting fashion. Style becomes fashion, we can express our individuality through them. If you photographed fashion, however, at 15 year old skinny models, that expresses the essence of this girl. The models wearing the fashion and not vice versa.

Our site: What is your message to girls and women with self doubt?

Naomi Shimada: Be yourself and don’t try to slip in the footsteps of others. Be clear about it, what you love, and do in your life. Be eccentric. It releases so much make social pressure that weighs on us – you of them and acknowledge your supposed weaknesses your strengths. Be good to yourself.

Our site: Many women think: if I take these two kilos, my life will be better…

Naomi Shimada: … but that’s not true! I was also so. If I do have this, if I do this – this is a lie. Thrives on the fashion and beauty industries. You telling friends: your life will be better if you buy this dress. Your life will be better when you’re wearing this mascara on. The more we realize that’s not true, the better.

Our site: Do you have any self doubts?

Naomi Shimada: Sometimes. I could of course still better look as a model. We all could. But for what? The point is: If you think that you look good, you’re good enough. After this realization your energy there is move, where you need it. If you’re feeling good, you seem well on others. If you feel bad, this is reflected in your body language, and others are noticing.

Our site: what do you think of social media? How does this affect us?

Naomi Shimada: Of course, we see many perfect young people like Kendall Jenner or Gigi Hadid, but so many other things that previously had little or no public. I found a platform on social media with my body positivity – there, I show what I am and who I am. I think it’s exciting. Only perfect people were celebrated before social media, now I can create my own stage me, so how I want it.
