Knix Big and Strong video

Ahead of both Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, Canadian intimate apparel brand Knix is excited to announce a new brand film: Big. Strong. Woman, starring supermodel, feminist icon and Knix Global Brand Ambassador Ashley Graham.

Conceptualized by Knix Founder and CEO Joanna Griffiths and Graham (through a shared experience navigating various gender barriers while both pregnant with twins), the film highlights the common female experience of a world that does not create space for women, to be big and strong. Ashley Graham serves as Creative Director and narrator on the project.

The film made its debut at this year’s AdWeek Challenger Summit, where Griffiths was a keynote speaker. Joanna has been a long standing advocate for women and female entrepreneurs and the fortitude required to be in a male-dominated business world. The theme of this year’s summit was Disruption, which made it the ideal platform for the launch.

“I am beyond thrilled to show the world what we’ve been working on for Knix. Together with Joanna, we created this film to showcase all the challenges women face that make them the very picture of strength that should be celebrated every day,” according to Graham.

The film sheds light on the systemic norms and language that have encouraged boys to be big and strong, while girls are often told from a young age to be the exact opposite. The ethos of this film celebrates the extent of female strength in all its forms through a montage of intimate and powerful moments provided by the Knix community and some notable celebrities.

“From choosing to defy traditional gender norms, or enduring the physical and mental strength required to navigate fertility challenges, and loss. There are so many ways that women have to be big and strong. This was a message I wanted to share with my own twin girls,” says Griffiths, who gave birth to twin daughters on International Women’s Day last year.
