#BLACKWOMANMAGIC: MADELINE JONES & ARLINDA COVER 12th ANNIVERSARY ISSUE For PLUS MODEL MAG!!!



PLUS MODEL MAGAZINE Co-Founder and Editor-i-Chief MADELINE JONES and SOFISTAFUNK Owner-Designer ARLINDA cover the July 2018 12th ANNIVERSARY: AGELESS STYLE Issue of PLUS MODEL MAGAZINE!!!


Here are a few interview interludes:

PMM: The magazine celebrates 12 years, what have you have learned on this journey?

Maddy: #1 – You can’t do it alone.
#2 – You have to stay open to change, even when it feels uncomfortable.
#3 – You will never please everyone, all you can do is do what you think feels right.

PMM: Describe Sofistafunk.

Arlinda: Sofistafunk is a minority and female owned brand that offer an ever-changing collection of limited edition minimal to zero waste Skirts and SkirtCessories, which we hope will empower, uplift and inspire.

PMM: What is the key to your success?

Arlinda: Determination, patience and remembering why I started in the first place. In my opinion success is being comfortable with what you’ve achieved. I don’t view success as some higher place or status, my view of success is the ability to stay afloat and remain relevant.

PMM: The modeling industry has changed a lot. What has been the most significant change?

Maddy: We are seeing the inclusion of visibly plus size bodies, which has been at the forefront of my brand. Whether it’s a size 18 model on a campaign or a size 24 influencer, it’s a big step in the right direction. 

PMM: What is your advice to women in their late 30’s who are anxious about entering their 40’s. 

Maddy: #1 – I validate your feelings; you are leaving the fun 30’s. But guess what? You are leaving those years behind for the confidant 40’s, sexy 50’s and exciting 60’s and beyond.
#2 – Take care of your skin NOW! Don’t wait until you are older to do it.
#3 – Wear what YOU LOVE and show the world who you are.
#4 – Never feel bad about being the oldest one in the room; you are there for a reason. With age comes wisdom!

PMM: Many women feel like ‘fun style’ is over for them after a certain age… what is your advice to those women struggling to embrace themselves as they grow older?

Arlinda: My advice would be… Ladies call me; let’s talk Freedom of Fashion and Aging Positivity – LOL! We are the creators of FUN styles and just in case you’ve forgotten, let my 60 year old self remind you.  We were here first; all the colors, styles and outfit choices belonged to us first. This age is where the real fun starts so take a chance with your wardrobe and go try on something new.
