Is Plus-Size fashion over?
Really interesting article on plus-size fashion with comment from Refinery29. If we’re to believe Liroy Choufan, the author of the original article, then it makes for sad reading. I would hope that in the 21st Century, society, as a whole, can consist of all types of beauty. To do this we need to stop comparing ourselves to others and promote our own uniqueness. The world would be a very dull place indeed if we all looked alike. As Coco Chanel once said, “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” So be different, and be yourself.
Almost a decade ago, when I started volunteering with All Walks (the campaign for diversity in fashion), the idea of ‘plus size’ models in high fashion was a stretch for many in the industry. People thought our campaign was well-meaning, sure – but, realistically, they couldn’t believe it would ever happen.
