Erica Lauren is a bicoastal, agency-represented plus size model with a background in business and music. In a few short years, Erica has established herself as a modeling and social media power house. She has shot campaigns for numerous brands including Lane Bryant, Torrid,Foot Locker, and Walmart, and she has walked the runway in NY and LA fashion week. 

With a bachelor’s degree in music from USC, an MBA, and over 5 years of experience at a Fortune 500 company, Erica has a diverse background that helps bring a critical eye to her expanding career in the fashion industry. Previously working as a Diversity & Inclusion Specialist, Erica serves on the board of the CAM Foundation and is passionate about the importance of diverse representation in the fashion industry and beyond. 

Erica has caught the eye of many media outlets including the Daily Mail and Yahoo! Style for her resemblance to the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.  Erica was recognized on The Curvy Fashionista’s list of Who to Watch for Plus Size Fashion in 2018 and Plus Model Magazine’s 2019 #PMMWatchList as a model who’s breaking barriers in the industry.    

For many clients, Erica is their first size 18 model, challenging brands to be more inclusive. Through sharing her journey and style online, Erica aims to inspire women, whether they struggle with weight and/or self-confidence, to figuratively and literally stop clinging to their sweater, bare their arms, and find their inner model earlier in life.
