This week, Sept 15 in New York OneStopPlus.com is sponsoring an ALL PLUS SIZE Runway Show!!!

I almost cried when I heard about this! Maybe our voices will finally be heard and fashion may start to include instead of exclude us!


Who else is excited! I cannot wait! I am hoping to see the military and retro styles of mainstream echoed in these designers! even Marc Jacobs is rumored to be looking into expanding sizes!  Grin

That's all well and fine except "plus size" models barely qualify as "slightly plump."  See pic above.  Huh

yea i would rather see that more than one body type is represented as well. i got into a discussion about this very thing on facebook. the industry will only use the lowest "qualifying" plus size on the runway, of course.

It could be considered cheating, and it still leaves out us over size 20.

On the other hand, it could still be seen as a step towards the right direction. Rome wasn't built in a day they say.

I think even if they model the size 14/16 and still manufacture for the 20 -30W Then hey we at least won...something.

the next battle would then be getting designers to see our body shapes and not just sizes. They can't tailor a plus garment to save their lives. It's not "big all over" it's big in certain areas. I have major trouble with RTW b/c to fit my hips I have to buy a dress with a bodice that is 2 -3 sizes too big. good lord i am not a linebacker for the steelers!  Cheesy Only now Lane Bryant has started to recognize that women's pants needs tailored to body shapes. I have seen that a major jean company is following suit.

This is why I want to learn to sew.  I have to admit the thought is a bit intimidating.  I am pear shaped and always have a problem finding something to wear.  I'm big hipped and big busted and tend to wear a lot of shapeless clothes because I have a choice between too big or too tight  Sad

Sugar, I "yayed" out loud at work when I read about it. It's a step, albeit a small one, in the right direction. And I love the dress you highlighted.

I'd love to see more generously-sized female designers in the industry. I think part of the problem with current plus fashions is that most of them have been made by people who have no idea what it's like to be heavier and how that affects draping and wearability.

I have a lot of fitting issues at any size (short torso with a tiny rib cage but not-tiny breasts, long legs with a BIG booty), so most RTW doesn't work for me anyway, but it would be really nice to see more companies adopt shaped sizes like Lane Bryant's pants. I have jeans from Fashion Bug (LB's parent co. owns them) that are made for pears, and while they don't fit perfectly, at least the waistband doesn't gap 4 inches in the back! Smiley

In June they had a "Full Figured" Fashion week in New York.  I wanted to go but had surgery scheduled so plans fell through.  If they do it again in 2011 Im definately going. The website looked like the week would be really fun, now thats definately a step in the right direction Smiley

To be completely honest, Im a designer and there is no way that I would evern remotely be able to design for a plus sized model without taking a class first to see how to drape correctly and to show off her figure in the best way possible

What i'd like to see, is someone recognize that plus size does not mean bigger everywhere except the boobs. seriously! I have to buy clothes that are a couple sizes too big to adequated cover the girls and then take everything else in.

This is the issue with plus sizes, there are like 4 or 5 body types, so a standard fit is no good.
That said, I have gotten used to having cleavage slightly visible at times, and with me if it does not have a high neck line your likely to see the top of my boobs, so over 80% of the shirts I find are slightly, it used to bother me but not any more, its just skin people get over it.
