While defying the size 0-filled norm of fashion, I love how designers now are recognizing the value of women. A “good clothing line” to me, is the average girl who has curves. Plus size fashion is just as legitimate as any other fashion out there on the runway, and whatever somebody is showing, the collection itself is what speaks!
The average American woman wears a size 14, yet the average clothing line only reaches a size 12. There has long been a void of fashionable plus-sized clothing, despite the widespread customer base and high demand for it. Plus-sized clothing currently makes up only 14% of the apparel market, and some companies openly avoid producing larger sizes to protect their brand image. “The money will follow the trends if the trends establish traction. And the trend is that people are not ashamed of being plus-sized.” embracing fashion-forward plus lines as a movement that will take the effort of many designers and brands beyond. In an industry starved of body acceptance, there are those who have had enough, and are willing to boldly and beautifully redefine what it means to be fashionable.
