A special project by Fantabody.

In occasion of the new website launch, Fantabody invites you to discover the new Project “Follow your flow”.

Every woman has her rhythm, an energy that moves inside her; let yourself be seduced by music, follow your instinct, feel free to express yourself, without conditioning. Listen to your body which will show you the right way to follow: it is never wrong.
Find your energy and get it out! This is your goal!






On the occasion of the Brit Awards 2018, Fantabody dressed all the dancers who accompanied Dualipa in her performance "New Rules"!




Solange composed and choreographed two performances described as an “examination of protest as a meditation through movement and experimentation of unique compositions and arrangements from ‘A Seat at the Table’.” Set in museums, each performance gives space to Black artistry and patronship, and turns the idea of museum exhibitions as we know them into a safe space for activism through creative expression. For her performance at the Menil Collection museum in Houston, Solange wears the Carolina Blue Navy bodysuit.



FANTAGIRL I AM THE WOMAN I AM is a project  by Fantabody in collaboration with Vogue Italia.

The photographic project made in collaboration with Giustina Guerrieri, a young communication specialist who had always an interest in voicing real stories whilst exploring the boundaries of femininity.

An ode to the female body, regardless of its shape and skin colour. A research that promotes diversity as a starting point for addressing topics such as disability or immigration, which are approached with an inclusive, curious and prejudice-free attitude. Portrayed in her seductive uniqueness, every photographed subject has the opportunity to tell her story and reveal her nature with pride. An all-female collaboration where the protagonists are shot by selected female photographers and interviewed in the form of an intimate exchange of anecdotes and experiences.

The project is published monthly on


“I am a Gen Z changemaker and f. I am dedicated to serving my community and I am currently the Advocacy Director at Alliance for Girls which is the largest regional network of girl-serving organizations in the US. As a young woman, I have first-hand experience of how sexist cultural norms and policies limit the potential of girls. My story is just one of many. At my organization, we hear these stories in our research. We work with youth researchers to understand these stories so that we can address their needs through collective advocacy with our membership. Our #GirlsPolicyAgenda advocates for gender-based violence prevention and intervention policy, data collection on the needs of girls, and budgets that increase funding to support girls and gender-expansive youth.”


“I’m Emmanuelle, 27, from Brussels, Belgium. Both of my parents are from Burundi but I’ve lived most of my life here in Brussels. As a black trans woman, I am in the intersectionality of three minorities. While growing up, I could first witness this kind of issue through the eyes of my elder sisters. As we lived in Africa, we grew up with imposed European beauty standards. As I saw them playing with their blond and blue eyed dolls, the process of interlacing the wrong idea of beauty apparel often along with self-hate (the feeling of not having the “right” hair, the “good” skin or body type. “


“I am Benedetta, I am 26 years old and I am originally from Puglia but I moved to Novara since I was 12 years old. At the moment I work at Ermenegildo Zegna and I am following a course as a modiste as I would like to undertake an advancement in my career. This year has been a very difficult year for everyone, and although I still managed to get some satisfactions like becoming a union delegate at work, there are other projects that I was forced to give up temporarily, such as having a baby with my partner.”


“My name is Misungui, I’m a sex worker, I perform in feminist and queer porn and I also perform on stage as a shibari artist, my daily job is to be a Dominatrix and I am a sex educator so I organize workshops about pour bodies and sexualities. I was studying gender and I decided to do my reserch on feminist porn so I start to meet a lot of women who did stuff about feminism, body, sexuality… and at a point I realize that i was not just interested to Study this subject, like a scientiste, i wanted to experiment, to leave it. So i did it!”


“My name in Cheryl, aged 34 from the United Kingdom. I am a full time mother of two boys aged 12 and 4. I love being a mom, My children are my life, everything I do is for them.  I have a passion for cooking and physical activities such as the gym which helps me with my overall physical and mental health. Reading  has also become one of my favourite hobbies as it  helps me to stay focused. Alongside my motherly duties I am a diverse model and self love advocate. I like spend time encouraging others to love themselves and increase their confidence through campaigns, projects and photo shoots that I have been involved in. After suffering with confidence issues being able to change the lives of others though  my story is so important to me.  I have set up an organisation by delivering workshops to help young men and women with confidence and self love also helping  and encouraging them to change the mindset about how they think negatively about their own body imagine and learning to accept other people now many their differences.”


“I’m Giulia but I almost always prefer ZUZU. I am a 24 year old cartoonist, illustrator and incurable playful person. I am a capricorn with gemini rising, so i want everyone to take me seriously except me. I hardly believe in anything, only in bonds and intuitions. Comics, like any other art form, serve to tell stories. And for me, telling stories means taking a few steps back from yourself, looking out. This operation allows me not to feel any shame, no sense of inadequacy even when I reveal confidential parts of myself. For this reason, getting naked has not cost me much effort, because my story, my life is like my notebooks, nobody will see them, but without it I would have nothing to tell. For almost all my life I have fought with a fact: I am a shameless person, who does not understand the sense of decency, of demeanor, of mystery as an end in itself. Since I allowed myself to admit this truth a knot of pain and frustration has melted away, and I’m happier.”


“My name is Lucy Beall, I am twenty-one and am currently a student at the University of St. Andrews, in Scotland, but am originally from Texas. I am doing a joint degree in History of Art and Classics, specialising in Early Medieval art and Roman British Archeology. Before St. Andrews, I had the pleasure of studying in London with Sotheby’s institute of Art and Birkbeck College. I missed so much school as a child due to my condition, but those days staying home from school were the most valuable of my life. I owe all that I am now to them. Although I could not control what happened to my body, what it became or what it did, my condition could not touch my ability to learn. As a child I decided to let that take me as far as I could. I am an academic at heart, and hope to one day continue my work in auction houses in London, or work in museums. I take pride in my work, and enjoy talking about it in order to challenge the stigma that those with disabilities are unable to have careers or an education.”


“My name is Trista McGovern. I am a photographer, editor, artist, and writer based out of Minneapolis. Lately I have been focused on promoting awareness and education about ableism – especially disability and sexuality. I have been using my personal life experiences as an example for people to learn from. Within my photographic work, I love photographing anything that is about humans being humans, especially vulnerably intimate portraits, body studies, social series, and lifestyle portraits. Outside of my passion for photography and social issues, I spend a lot of time with people I love and connecting with others. Building community and unlearning ingrained societal issues/systems has been a huge theme of my life this year. From a small Wisconsin town to getting my Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography up until now, I have always prioritized growth personally, creatively, interpersonally, and professionally. At 27 years old, I have reached a point of wanting to share my experiences with people and have been increasingly excited for all the future projects I am currently working on and planning to do too.”


“Im Raya, a 23 years old trangender women, I live in Paris but I come from a french volcanic island in the middle of the Indian ocean, called “La Réunion “; I grow up there and I move to Paris at 17 years old to find a way to construct my identity and future without no one to stop me. I’m a model, an artist and my work turns around love and passion that I discovered with people I meet everyday in my life. I just realized that my body didn’t correspond to my soul when I decided to leave my parents’ place at 15 years old; I felt breathless, I knew I could not really identify myself with someone else on that small island. Since childhood I realized that people would always try to hinder my choices, that they would try to stop me. The fact of having realized this since I was very young has perhaps tempered me and helped me to overcome a lot of horrible situations, because people can be really rude! Fashion makes me feel beautiful and confortable with myself, inside and outside; With fashion I feel I can make a real contribution, because by sharing my image and what I am I can help other people in a condition of discomfort to feel free.”


“I am a 28-year-old disabled artist and student living in Portland, Maine in the US. I have disabilities, which I never refer to as “problems.” I was born with a congenital disorder called cerebral palsy (CP), which, for those who are unaware, is a condition that occurs from extensive trauma to the brain, and is believed to most frequently occur during or shortly after childbirth. I try my best to maintain a deep understanding and appreciation for my body despite my physical and mental experiences, and I think the journey between my internal and external self is going to be something I continue to confront for a long while. I live in a social climate that continually reinforces the idea that my body is “wrong” or “undesirable” or a “problem to be fixed.I represent my femininity by engaging in activities that make me feel proud, smart, kind, confident and resilient. My femininity is observable in the way I stand up for what I believe in, and how I genuinely care for others.”


“Hello everyone, I’m Kimberly, I’m 15. My dream is to go to university and ultimately become a journalist and prove that people with disabilities can be successful,in life. I would love to become an ambassador for the positive promotion of and raising of awareness of albinism through my modelling. In the past I had an internal conflict with myself and my albinism. Despite my mum’s best attempts to educate me and bring me up as a black child I rejected this and identified myself as white. I struggled with role models as I was idolising white pop stars etc causing me to dislike my body shape and cause confusion over my identity. Over time, I have learnt to embrace my albinism and the uniqueness it gives me. I now accept I am a black young woman who has a lack of pigmentation that causes me to appear white! Over the past few years my mindset has changed in as much as I am proud of my albinism and feel that it is influencing my life in a positive way.”


“Hello, I’m Lorena, I’ve recently turned 30 and I’m from Bari. I have a degree in literature and  my passion are dogs.When I was 9 I was diagnosed with a tumour to my eye. Just imagine what a trauma that was for a kid. I was always a cheerful, smiling girl full of beans. I remember that around the time of my first communion I had decided to let my hair grow very long: well, day after day, chemotherapy took it all away until I became bold. I remember feeling helpless, wanting to be out enjoying life, which for a 9 year old kid simply means going to school, doing sports, having fun and playing while I had to undergo therapy, blood samples, check-ups even if you don’t want because that’s for your own good. I underwent several cosmetic surgery treatments but none of them worked as radiotherapy had burnt the receiving tissues. That’s why I had to resort to wearing an eye patch.And that’s also the reason why I’d love pharmaceutical companies to produce colourful and fun hypoallergenic patches also for grown-ups, perhaps something with trendy prints and patterns to change and match to the outfit you are wearing. To me being a woman means not being afraid of knowing yourself, including your strengths and weaknesses, but rather having the courage to look inside. Always.”


“My name is Patrizia Mori, I am 28 years old and I come from Lausanne, Switzerland. I graduated in economics, I have always been a very dynamic person, a lover of art and sport; needless to say how much I miss riding a bike or dancing! I loved and still love going out with friends, going out for dinner and traveling. One of the things I hate about my current disability is finding more difficulties in being able to travel around the world. If I’m here in a wheelchair now, it’s because my mother shot me in the back about a year ago. I have always had a steel, rebellious and independent character, and the incident has undoubtedly accentuated even more these sides of my character! Perhaps I have become tougher, I would say that simply what happened to me made me realize the importance of not wasting time in life. Especially with people.”



“My name is Paula Rey Jiménez, I am a professional photographer from Spain living in New York City. I am a photojournalist, and at the moment I work in the marketing department at The New York Film Academy. I like to take pictures, I like to dance, I love music, and I love food, all sorts of food. I enjoy spending time with my family, with my husband and my dog. When I was a child I had a car accident with my family. I was two years old, I don’t remember anything, only from stories that my parents have told me. After a long time in a coma and many many surgeries I woke up like a brand new little girl, I was ok, I just looked a bit different. I don’t think I could understand the feelings that I had at the time. My emotions about this experience have been changing during my entire life. I am a photojournalist, I take pictures, all I want to do is capture the moment, because I know that we will forget one day, but I will have all these pictures to remember. Being a woman is a big sentence, I don’t think I feel different than if I was a boy, I like to be sexy and fun, but I think that’s just as a human being. Once you accept yourself and you accept you as a woman is then that you feel very feminine.”


“Hi, I’m Veronica Yoko and I’m an athlete. The sport that made me compete in many world competitions and that brings me a lot of medals is absolutely my greatest passion, and above all it was my greatest support to win the biggest challenge, the one with myself! I was 15 when, on a day like so many, I was struck by fulminant meningitis. Six months in the hospital, without seeing anyone but my parents, where I slowly saw my body transformation. The most strange moment was when I left the hospital to return to real life … I thought, how will my friends look at me? But it was much easier than I thought: for my friends, for all the loved people, the most important thing was to see me again after a long time, not how much my body had changed! For a while at the beginning I thought :- Why did it happen to me?- But the words of my father were fundamental to make me understand- Sometimes fate tests the strongest people, because they are those able to overcome them!-

Thanks to the sport, the unconditional love of my parents, my friends and my willpower, I overcame all the insecurities, throwing myself headlong into this life full of beautiful things and now, a few years have passed, I feel totally comfy with myself and my body!

I have a very intense life, sport leads me to travel all over the world, I train constantly to get better results. I live in Bologna alone, where I study and go around with my beloved military green Defender car! I have a boyfriend that I love, and I’ll tell you, even in the past I’ve never had any problems with the guys, I’ve always shown myself for who I am from the first moment! I like to go out with friends, make up, and I don’t care if I can not put high heels, I like myself the same!”


“Hi, I’m Khareign and I am 20 years old. I’m a singer, song-producer and writer who goes by the name ‘Kah’, that is the word for ‘soul’ in ancient Egyptian. Overall, I have grown up happy with my body and I try my best to take care of it. Growing up around boys make me scared to embrace my femininity. I was always trying to find ways to separate myself from anything that was ‘feminine’ and even created a male alter ego for myself who I named ‘Warren’. But I have learned that feminine energy is simultaneously fierce and delicate. Femininity is not just the color ‘pink’! Femininity to me is strong, nurturing and alluring.”

“Hi, I’m Jamina. The relationship with my body is a complicated, ever evolving love story of acknowledgement, acceptance and gratitude. Having been given this body in this time of history, wherein a woman’s ideas are constantly challenged in terms of beauty standards. I have a scar in my eye which used to bug me a lot, as sometimes, especially in photo’s I look like I am a cross eyed but I have learned to embrace my scars. What really is femininity? It’s different for everyone, but to me it feels like an essence from within. I feel feminine when I put on my favorite sun dress, I feel feminine when I play football, I feel feminine when I am emotional, I feel feminine when I have my period, I feel feminine when I make love!”

“Hi, I’m Lani. I’ve had quite a rocky relationship with my body, I was an elite gymnast from the ages of 8, so through out my teenage years, the most difficult ones, I was very muscular which I hated. In hindsight muscular female bodies are such powerful things but as a teenager constantly being reminder of ‘the perfect body’ in the media it was hard for me. I think from 19 onwards is when I began to fully fall in love with myself, I’ve got to the point now where, yes I might have bad days with myself confidence but they don’t last long at all. My current relationship with my body is really good at the moment. Femininity for me is just a kind of there. I can’t pin point the times when I feel feminine I just kind of happens!”

Cristina Troisi

“So not every female human being is necessarily a woman; she must take part in this mysterious and endangered reality known as femininity. Is femininity secreted by the ovaries? Is it enshrined in a Platonic heaven? Is a frilly petticoat enough to bring it down to earth? Although some women zealously strive to embody it, the model has never been patented. It is typically described in vague and shimmering terms borrowed from a clairvoyant’s vocabulary…” This is what Simone de Beauvoir wrote in her famous “Second Sex” when she tried to explain her concept of femininity and I find myself very much in accord with this idea. I’m Diletta, I’m 25, and I think femininity and female sex are two different concepts, and not always related. I do not believe that the birth of a woman automatically acquires femininity. Feminine are all those characteristics, attitudes, behaviors that characterize you. In my case, for example, I consider irony a fundamental characteristic of my femininity. And with this same irony I learned to laugh of my defects and to live with them.”

Greta Tosoni

“Hi, I’m Valeria and I don’t like my ass. I think it isn’t pretty, or better, I think my ass is a little bit disproportionate to my boobs, even if I find my boobs too big some days. Big boobs could be a bore sometimes! Especially when I run and it happens often to me because I’m always late. Sometimes I think I should be more organized, but I love doing so many things and I LOVE MY SELF also for this!”

“Hi, I’m Adele and I’m 21. I’ve always thought I have quite-wide hips, but all in all it’s ok. I’ve learned to accept my body. In contrast, my biggest problem is that I often lose myself! There are many days that is like I start a mind-trip, as when you listen to music and you are so inside the sound that you lost the contact with reality. My friends say I’m always day-dreaming, but it’s the reason they love me. And the reason why I LOVE MYSELF.”

“Hello, I’m Zoe. Since I was a kid, my legs are my biggest complex. I used to detest them so much that I even thought about doing something to change them and make them straighter, but when I realized that they should have been literally cut up for that, I changed my mind! But then one morning, I just woke up and realized that I could have never been a model. And now, I LOVE MYSELF especially for this!”

“Hi, I’m Maya. I always knew that my body was not conform to the “standard” that current times impose to society. When I was younger it was more difficult because I didn’t feel comfy with my curves, and every one knows how hard is life in teenage. But there was a moment, I still remember well, that I saw my image in the mirror and I thought – Ok, who’s decide what is right or what is wrong?- . I could be thinner but this doesn’t change my personality and who I am. I learned to embrace myself besides my size and I’ve always been very confident when relating with people. I feel beautiful. People always said that I have a lovely and strong attitude. Actually I have my insecurities, but my positive and enthusiastic side is stronger than that. And for this I LOVE MYSELF so much!”

“Ehi, I’m Michela and I’m 20. Since I was a teenager my biggest complex were my little boobs! GOD if they are small! The worst thing is that all the guys always cuddled the girls with the bigger breasts, and I felt excluded and uncomfortable with my body, which seemed like a surfboard! For a while I also thought that when I was growing I would have done aesthetic surgery, but at moment my boobs have remained the same and the only conviction that I have is that guys who just look at boobs or curves of a girl are a fucking idiots and I’m not interested in anything to do with them! And these are the goals of life that makes me LOVE MY SELF.”

“Hi, I’m Adria and I’m 21. Even if many people may think that being a redhead and having lots of freckles is beautiful, for me it has not always been so. When I was a teen I tried to hide my freckles with strange creams and my crazy curly hair were really difficult to handle. But day by day, I understood they actually are my distinctive signs and there is nothing cooler than being recognizable at first sight for something! Now I know that if I ask someone to portrait me, they will immediately sketch my red mass of hair and my freckles and everyone will think: ok, she’s Adria!- That’s cool and lovely! And I LOVE MYSELF for this!”

Carolina Amoretti

“Hi, I’m Josephine.Ever since I was younger, I always knew that I had very “strong” facial features, I could say masculine, and maybe that’s why my personality has somehow adapted to my image, becoming very dominant, even in interpersonal relationships . Nevertheless, as I grew up I learned to pull out my female part. It has always been, I just had to find the right key to get her out, in a very personal way. And I LOVE MYSELF for this!”

“I’m Silvana, I’m 65 years old. Since I was young my biggest complex was the nose, but I always decided not to do anything, because I think it was a distinctive trait of my face. Sincerely, I believe that the most important changes in a woman’s life are not related to a specific physical connotation, but to fundamental events of their own existence. For example, becoming a mother has changed me deeply, it’s as though I was born again with my son. In life I have crossed so many stages, reinventing myself continually. At this age of full maturity I rediscovered my creative vein, devoting myself to craftsmanship. I think this is the great force of myself as woman: to be many things together, and yet always coherent with myself. And I LOVE MYSELF for this!”

“Hi, I’m Joelle. Like all the girls I had a lot of insecurities, I was always looking for an image that conformed to my ideal, often changing hair color or style for example. Yet I was never satisfied! With the passing of time, thanks to my mother’s precious advice, I realized that I was doing everything wrong because true beauty is in being natural. We have to respect what nature has given us because it has perfect codes. Now when I look at my reflection in the mirror, I see myself with my strengths and my defects, and I like it because I recognize myself in it. Valorize and improve yourself always, but change yourself never! And I LOVE MYSELF for this!”
