Advertising in beauty companies is becoming increasingly more modern and accepting however it wasn’t always so plausible to remould the industry’s outdated ideals. Andreja explained of the hardship in a recent Forbes interview, “I struggled to find an agency in London because no one knew whether they should put me in the men’s board or the women’s board … There was a lot of uncertainty about my commercial viability.”

A momentous moment in improving and advancing our society, Trans models are making history each month. Along side the beautiful blonde Andreja Pejic, Lea T and the ever famous Caitlyn Jenner have had a profound effect on lowering transgender discrimination which has decreased from 90% in the workplace in 2011 to 47% in the past months according to the National Transgender Discrimination surveys.
