Ebonee Davis was born and raised in Seattle, Washington and now lives in Brooklyn to pursue her modeling career.
She is a supermodel and activist, who is quickly defying beauty standards and making her mark on the fashion industry.
Eboneee has experienced a meteoric rise in the short time that she’s been modeling. Her editorial credits include Glamour, Office Magazine, Teen Vogue, and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. She has done campaigns including Calvin Klein, L’Oreal, Adidas, and Urban Outfitters and she walked in Yeezus Season 4.
Ebonee is a born leader, and is passionate about social issues. She embraces her natural beauty, and encourages other young girls to do the same. She is an advocate for change in the fashion world to help create more authentic opportunities for women of color. Ebonee expressed her first-hand experiences of exclusion and systemic bias in her open letter to the fashion industry published by Harper’s Bazaar in 2016.
As a result of her courage to speak out, Ebonee was invited to give a TED Talk at the University of Nevada entitled “Black Girl Magic in the Fashion Industry”. In her talk, she detailed her experiences as a black model in the industry, and emphasized the great responsibility that the fashion industry has because it not only reflects society’s standard of beauty, but also the current state of our democracy.
To put her words into action, Ebonee makes it a priority to give back to her community. She speaks to young girls and also serves on the Board of Directors of Via Seattle, an organization made up of Seattle natives embarking on philanthropic endeavors across the country. At only 23 years old, Ebonee is a role model for young girls, encouraging them to educate themselves and speak their minds. She will not stop until she sees change, not just for herself, but for generations to come.
