    Meet Rye, ModCloth’s First Trans Model

    Photo: ModCloth ModCloth, the online store known for its retro-inspired dresses and tight-knit community, has always been one of the most inclusive fashion companies. They’ve championed plus-size (collaborating with blogger Nicolette Mason last year), recently signed a pledge to feature a diverse cast of models, and promised to never use photoshop to enhance or manipulate the bodies pictured on their site. As part of their #FashionTruth campaign, they ecommerce shop is inviting their customers and fans to post pictures of themselves in their favorite ModCloth styles and tag it #FashionTruth for a chance to be featured on the website (and win a gift card). This month, the honor went to Rye Silverman, a writer and comedian, who also happens to be a transwoman.  Silverman, who is already a frequent contributor to ModCloth’s Style Gallery (community members submit pictures of their cute outfits), credits the site with giving her the confidence she needed to seek out and develop her own personal style.
