Philadelphia's Plump Size Fashion Movement has had several changes since Shamerra P. Saunders had the idea to share with plus-size queens how to make shea butter and body scrubs as a source of therapy and self reflection, because helped her during transition out of depression.
In its second year, Shamerra brought in another woman and the first transition took place, shifting the focus toward modeling, including men, and changing the name to Sisterhood Project LLC (SHP LLC). Incorporating her new partner's love of runway fashion and staying true to Shamerra's desire to be an asset to women in need especially those who adorn her image, the two combined forces held bootcamps where they taught women and men the basics of modeling and other skills.
In its third year the organization experienced its biggest shift, new owners and operators, a new name, and fresh new outlook and brand. The company's new owners LV & Patrice Wise-Brown of Two Libras Inc wanted to keep the integrity of what was Sisterhood Project. They still hold bootcamps and end the season with the Annual Royal Fashion but along with keeping some things in place, they have made significant changes, an obvious change is the name and assembling a Royal Court. The duo decided SHP Models LLC would create a new brand from what was previously established and eliminate the confusion associated with individuals believing the organization is solely for women. In addition to providing all the essentials necessary to become a successful model, the organization also offers small workshops open to the public after bootcamps are done. The workshops include make up application, posing, and naturally walking. The organization is deeper than modeling, building confidence in the already extraordinary is the real cause and it is evident in the ladies who have crossed over under the new leadership.

Expanding from the former owner naming Michelle the Model of the Year, LV and Patrice decided to honor the women who participated with Sisterhood in its inaugural year and also expanded the idea playing off the name of the annual fashion show and created a Royal Court adding a Duchess from each year to stand with the Model of the Year, along with a MVM (Most Valuable Model).
