So last week was New York Fashion Week and this week has all been about London, but for this post I want to focus on the second annual plus size fashion event that was dedicated to showing off clothes made for sizes 14 and up. Although not officially affiliated with London Fashion Week, the timing of the show was of course planned to initiate a discussion about the shape of things to come in the industry.
With the national average dress size being a 16, there is fashion for everyone and Rianne Ward, founder of Plus Size Fashion Weekend, said: “For such a long time people have worried about their size and the label in the back of their clothing. We need to remove the stigmas and barriers that are currently in place. We need to move away from our fixation with numbers and remember we’re all real women.”
My post last week looked at the kind of outfits brides to be could wear at events surrounding their wedding. This week the same applies so take a look at a couple of examples above and below featuring High Street brand retailiers showing off its latest eye-catching designs.
