Fashiona pays tribute to Plus-size model Mia Amber Davis

Fashiona was saddened to hear about the passing of plus model Mia Amber Davis.  
She was a champion for healthy plus size women. 
According to TMZ.com, Davis had knee surgery to treat an old college basketball injury in L.A. the day before she died.  She was only 36.

The beauty was best-known for her work with Ashley Stewart being the face of Jill Scott's Butterfly Bra, a cameo in the movie "Road Trip," and serving as Creative Editor-at-Large for Plus Model Magazine
Davis appeared on CNN back in 2009 to discuss obesity in America. 
"Sizeism is the last acceptable prejudice....We're targets, but yet we're invisible everywhere else. The media doesn't showcase overweight people, overweight women are not seen in Hollywood. It's like, why are we being targets but we're invisible everywhere else?"
Mia had just been tapped to received the 2011 Full Figured Fashion Week Plus Size Runway Model of the Year Award.
 See her Rip the Runway.
