It was high time. From the 8th to the 17th of September was the New York Fashion Week and at least we can note that plus-size models had a lot of attention. This proves, if this is still necessary, that 2015 really marks a change in the attitudes and deep-rooted stereotypes of the fashion industry.
From Beth Ditto to Marc Jacobs to Ashley Graham’s “glamorous lingerie line”, you will discover the highlights of the season-all in the spirit of diversity.
11 September, 9.30 Am:
First Plus-Size-Collection For “Project Runway”
The first time during the presentation of the final collections at the American cult TV show “Project Runway”, designer Ashley Nell Tipton presented a romantic and sensual plus-size collection.
A taste for the upcoming week.
September 11, 8:30 Am:
Sabina Karlsson & Denise Bidot For Chromat.
If we were to award a prize for diversity, he would presumably go to the American brand Chromat and her “Momentum” collection, which celebrated the body in all its forms.
The Artistic Director of the brand, Becca McCharen, chose the plus size model Sabina Karlsson and Desine Bidot to bring this message across – and they were absolutely stunning. Message arrived.
15 September, 11 Am:
Ashley Graham & Addition Elle Catwalk Show.
This was undoubtedly a show that will write history. The star model Ashley Graham presented his lingerie line for the Canadian brand Additionelle in a groundbreaking fashion show.
On the catwalk were staggering, non-standard curvy women watching the Manhattan temperatures rise a few degrees to the top.
Now the Ashley Graham Lingerie Collection exclusively at navabi shopping
15 September, 5 Pm:
Candice Huffine On The Catwalk Of Sophie Theallet.
Surprise of the Supermodel Candice Huffine (we love her here at navabi) during the fashion show of the designer Sophie Theallet.
In a very sexy transparent black dress, the model struck like a bomb at her catwalk debut, proving once again that fashion is not at size 40.
17 September, 6 Pm:
Beth Ditto To Marc Jacobs.
Is there a better conclusion of the eventful week in the Big Apple as the singer Beth Ditto in a glamorous Hollywood version with high-slit, richly applied, low-cut Maxikleid in Crème?
Probably not really…
While more and more plus size events parallel to official fashion appointments (such as the UK Plus Size Fashion Week in London or the Pulp’Fashion Week in Paris), the true revolution should not be the diversity In all its forms directly on the catwalks of prestigious luxury and influential brands in New York, London, Milan and Paris?
Let’s talk about statistics: except for the plus size collections of Ashley Graham & Ashley Nell Tipton, only four curvy women were running on the catwalks of the so-called “regular” collections. Considering that there are about 200 fashion shows during the NYFW with about 40 looks per show, we are at a serious percentage of 0.1% of curvy models on the catwalks…
What New York Fashion Week has shown us in any case is that a change takes place (no matter how small) in the fashion industry, which allows more room for differences. We hope, of course, that the stock has.
