One sound … one rhythm … one movement … One Strutis not your average fashion show! We are a runway entertainment group dominating catwalks through choreographed, synchronized movements with a rhythmic flair; and we’re ready to bring our show to your city! We bring each garment to life with dynamic personality and engaging energy. Our signature style and vibrant fashion captivate audiences, with a versatility that caters our choreography to each client’s needs. We are a force to be reckoned with! We are a group of educated, professional models who saw a void in the fashion industry after the end of Ebony Fashion Fair. Standing tall after rejection, strife, and adversity, we united as One Strut, which is not just an entertainment group but a ministry. A ministry representing perseverance, purpose, courage, and faith. Through our gifts and talents, we seek to inspire others to see themselves as God sees them; fearfully and wonderfully made. We encourage women of all shapes, sizes, and skin tones to walk boldly and confidently in the gifts that God has given them. We stand together as ‘ONE for Substance, Tenacity, and Righteousness Under Truth’ – One S.T.R.U.T.!
One Strut Models
With years of experience Lauren was able to grow confident enough to know that if she wanted to be accepted in the fashion, beauty, or entertainment world without changing her size, look, or expectations for herself, she would have to create her own mold. One Strut has become that mold plus more. Currently, besides being a One Strut model, Lauren is a marketing and producing guru and has worked with many companies such as Dick Clark productions, Stevie Wonder’s premier Los Angeles radio station, the University of Southern California, Kia of Downtown LA, Shapes Brow Bar, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, DPSS, and more. Lauren’s goal is to help diversify the beauty and fashion world not just by skin color, shape and size, but by creativity and self-acceptance.
