I just read an article the other day about designers sending curvy models down the catwalk, then we received an email announcing Vogue Italia is also featuring curvier models. As a healthy, full-figured mom of soon-to-be eight, I find this refreshing because I honestly do not believe we were all meant to be one size, especially size zero!
Just think if the fashion world did accept all sizes….I cannot really fathom it, but just maybe over time the fashion world will evolve and do just that though.
Here’s Stephanie Sobel, President of OneStopPlus.com Group, the world’s first and largest plus size web mall offers an expert commentary on what this move means for the fashion industry.
We are extremely excited about the launch of Vogue Italia’s curvy site, as this is yet another example of the ways in which plus size women are being empowered and respected as trendsetters in the industry, as much as their size 0 counterparts. This is an important move and could be the catalyst for higher end designers and media to cater to real women,” – noted Stephanie, Sobel, President of OneStopPlus.com Group.
