Luckyshops.com is no more

Ashley Graham's Addition Elle line sold over $1 million worth of bras last year
At an event Thursday to celebration NYDJ's new "Fit to Be" campaign, model Ashley Graham told Fashionista that she was shocked and honored to be a part of Forbes's 2016 "30 Under 30" list. "My bra sales were over a million dollars last year," she said. "It's not something that came overnight… I had proved that I could sell anything that they put on my body and then I told [Addition Elle], 'Hey, Let's do a lingerie line. Let's fill the gap of what you're missing with my name.' It was like magic and here we are three years later." The outspoken plus-size industry advocate added that she wants to see more curvy girls on the runways and in hair and makeup campaigns this year. So will Graham be walking in New York this season? "I hope so!" she said. See NYDJ's campaign featuring Graham, Christie Brinkley, Lana Ogilvie and Bridget Moynahan below.
