Revolution Of The Curvy

Just wanted to make a note of a few momentous leaps plus size fashion has made in the world. Let me take you through 3, I feel, most exciting things that have happened in the plus size industry recently.

1. Full Figure Fashion Week

They started a few years ago in New York and have now spread to Los Angeles & Canada. I am only waiting for it to come to Asia now, cos you know, we have big women here too.

A Fashion week dedicated to plus size fashion would reach out to more people and make plus size fashion more inspiring to the world. I am so happy to see that plus size models and brands are given the same opportunity as the brands like Donna Karan, Vivienne Tam and Anna Sui to walk down a glamorous runway show.

2. Curvy Barbie Dolls

Contrary to many popular beliefs, Barbie has actually been experimenting with many body types before (especially their controversial pregnant Barbie), however they never gone all out to promote & introduce a curvy body type before.

Love that society has forced Mattel to make this revolutionary breakthrough decision of letting children choose a body type they can relate and feel beautiful to. Good riddance to that ridiculous body shape that even sexy celebrities have turn to surgery or shape wear to attain. Though it is still far from being a realistic plus size body shape, it is still a huge improvement in the mentality of a company which has been stubbornly promoting only 1 type of beauty.

Hooray for improvement in mindset & acceptance of individuality!

3. Plus Size Designer Wins Project Runway

I am happy that a Plus Size designer has won a show watched all around the world, but I think I am abit disappointed she didn’t start the show designing for a plus size model and that she should have had a plus size model from the start.

After knowing she won, I rushed to watch all the episode and kept waiting for them to give her a body that she was used to sew for, a plus size.

Though I am very happy that they ended the finale by giving her a chance to design for plus size models.
