Who is the ideal woman? YOU are gorgeous! Our guest today is artist Allie Pohl, the creator of the Ideal Woman avatar. Questioning the notion of perfection, Allie created the “Ideal Woman” by digitally enhancing Barbie to fit Western society’s ideal female measurements of 36-24-36. This avatar symbolizes anti-perfection and is repeated throughout her work in sculpture, video, ceramic, installation and jewelry line. Tune in as we discuss the inspiration behind Ideal Woman, how it's a playful reminder that each one of us is the ideal, how social media fits into this discussion, and how you can get your very own ideal woman piece, vajazzling optional ;)

This episode is in collaboration with Savoir Collab and is part of the Savoir Woman series, highlighting #womenwhoknow. Savoir Collab is an event stage where women and their businesses are showcased to inspire others. Go to savoiragency.com to learn more.
