Levi's, the original, definitive jean brand, and Pictory announce “Secrets of Inspiring Women” a Levi's-sponsored photographic showcase celebrating inspirational women on Pictorymag.com. Inspired by Shape What's to Come, Levi's global initiative and web community which is designed to inspire and empower millennial women, photographers were invited to submit self-portraits and tell the story of getting to where they are as a woman, their mentors along the way, how they're impacting others and share advice for the next generation.

“Pictory is thrilled to partner with the Levi's brand to enable young women to tell the stories behind the pursuit of their passions and potential through photography,” said Pictory founder Laura Brunow Miner.

"I love how the Levi's brand has taken up the charge to connect women by interests and industries to empower one another. The Levi's brand is a leader in encouraging creative expression: they've worked with an impressive array of indie photographers and filmmakers, produced community spaces for creative output through their Workshops series, all while staying true to the roots of their 150-year-old company. It's exciting to see them focus their influence as a pioneering brand on impacting the lives and careers of countless young women."

Photographer Maren Celest joined Pictory founder Laura Brunow Miner to guest curate the showcase. Renowned for film-based images, Maren recently shot Levi's Shape What's to Come Ambassador portraits. In addition to photography, Maren is a member of the Cashmere Clubhouse art collective. She also sings and plays the ukulele, keyboard and banjo in her band, The Photographers.

“As a pioneering brand, Levi's has long inspired people from all walks of life to go forth and pursue their passions, “ said Maren Celest. “I'm delighted to be working with the Levi's brand, and in partnership with Pictorymag.com, to encourage dynamic young women to create new definitions of success and shape what's to come -- for themselves and the world at large.”

“The Levi's brand has been shaping women's fashion since it introduced the first pair of women's jeans 75 years ago,” said Mary Alderete, Vice President of Levi's Global Women's Marketing. “We are building on this legacy to help young women shape their futures. ShapeWhat'sToCome.com, and related projects, are designed to celebrate and inspire the young women who are shaping our world. The Pictory 'Secrets of Inspiring Women' photographic showcase is a perfect vehicle for women to share the stories of their inspiration, growth and desire to shape what's to come.”

ShapeWhatsToCome.com recently launched in the United States, United Kingdom and Japan. Twenty inspiring millennial “ambassadors”, engaged by the Levi's brand and living in the U.S., UK and Japan, ranging from up-and-coming artists and performers to twenty-something entrepreneurs and advocates for social change, will enrich thecommunity with the fruits of their efforts.

“The Shape What's To Come initiative builds on the Levi's brand global commitment to empower young women to shape their futures by pursuing their passions and potential,” added Alderete. “It's not just about being the biggest jeans brand for women—it's also about being the most relevant and beloved brand. We want to provide millennial women around the world with products and opportunities that fit her – both literally and figuratively.”
