Fun, fresh and irreverent, Naomi Shimada is a dynamic force who is fast becoming the voice of a generation. Her multi-faceted talents and unique beauty have seen her conquer the worlds of modelling and TV presenting and in only her twenties, she identifies as a global citizen has called countries as diverse as the USA, Japan, the United Kingdom and Spain home, giving her a unique perspective on the world. Naomi’s candid and frank depiction about her experiences as a model and the wider fashion industry has meant she has become a prolific voice in the body positive movement. As a self-described “healthy body image activist,” Naomi has a monthly column in InStyle UK that reaches 150,000 readers, in which she showcases style has nothing to do with size. She has been profiled by the likes of The Sunday Times, CNN, BBC, i-D and most recently, she graced the cover of The Observer magazine in which she discussed fashion’s prejudices towards plus-size models with acclaimed journalist Eva Wiseman. Her candid admirable and relatable approach to her career and those around her has seen amass a large social media following and now committed to shedding light to social causes close to her heart, Naomi wants to extend the dialogue even further. 2016 signals her move into documentary filmmaking and she is already in pre-production on her video series committed to social issues that affect women across the globe; from sexuality, motherhood, health to travel; subjects she sees as inextricably linked, and that will see her take her pioneering spirit and call for change to a global stage.
