Tes

The very first face of Full Figured Fashion Week™ in 2009. This southern bell, born in Monticello, Arkansas, booked her first modeling gig on her own at the tender age of 13 and was the first plus sized model to ever work with WetSeal. Teslyn has done print work for companies such as Target, Meijer’s, Ashley Stewart, and Groupon just to name a few. She has appeared on the Steve Harvey Talk Show, NBC, WCIU, ABC, and Fox. She has landed numerous editorials in magazines, such as Black Hair Magazine, Milwaukee Magazine, and PLUS Model Magazine. She has walked the runway for designers and companies such as MonifC, Lane Bryant, Torrid, Igigi, Ashley Stewart and more. She also has worked as a casting contributor for Full Figured Fashion Week, Dangerous Curves Ahead, and Fuller Woman Expo. She is a passionate, driven, and ambitious plus model, with an extraordinary zeal for her craft. However, she’s not only a pretty face, Teslyn has a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology and will be relaunching her campaign Hippy and Healthy in 2017- a campaign that intertwines both modeling and mental health together to help others to live their very best both mentally and physically.
