In her interview, Toni reviews her activist history, a Smart Sensuality woman's trajectory we've followed for years. What is new is Toni's positioning herself directly with a luxury brand, wanting the alliance but also directly asking for support for her activist and philanthropic efforts in Africa. We agree that when models become ambassadors for luxury products, they should not hesitate to negotiate financial support for their values and life priorities. If a brand says "no deal", is the gig and the money actually worth it? Is the established model living up to her full potential in accepting a "no"? Does the model really want to represent this brand?
