Statuesque, poised, graceful, striking…all of those adjectives aptly describe attributes belonging to Miss Sharon Quinn, affectionately known as The ORIGINAL Runway Diva, due to her presence, style and unbelievable confidence on the catwalk.
She is the Creator and Executive Producer of a educational talk show series that debuted in December 2015 on Manhattan Neighborhood Network’s Lifestyle & HD Channels titled “Model Behavior with Sharon Quinn”. Model Behavior, as in “set an example for…” highlights the careers of guests who have had success in their perspective fields and how they accomplished their achievements. The show airs every Saturday morning at 11:30am also has its own YouTube channel for viewers who live outside of Manhattan.
Since 2010 she has also been the Casting Director for Full Figured Fashion Week®, New York City’s first fashion week devoted exclusively to plus sizes.
In 2014 Ebony Magazine listed her as one of “6 Plus Fashion Power Players on the Rise” and in January 2016 she was listed as a “Curve Celebre” (or plus industry influencer) by Curvysta Magazine. The hugely popular blog “The Curvy Fashionista” recently listed her as one of “25 Women of Color Who Paved the Way for Body Positivity & Plus Size Fashion”.
The 6 foot tall, shaved head beauty’s most recent TV appearances include returns to MTV’s MADE and ABC TV’s The View, she also appeared on Nuvo TV’s highly successful series “Curvy Girls” and in TV One’s hit reality series R&B Divas. Her most recent film credits include two award winning documentaries, “Plus! A Documentary” (2015) and “The Sixty-Six Percent” (2016).
A modern Renaissance woman, blazing trails wherever she goes, Sharon also teaches private runway instruction to aspiring models and travels around the country speaking to women, both younger and older, about the power of loving oneself…first. The multi-talented Miss Sharon Quinn, who believes in surrounding herself with positive people and positive things, is a standout model/singer/songwriter/actress/author—and role model. She stands head and shoulders above the rest.
