Plus-size women are seeing themselves represented in fashion by designers and retailers in ways unseen before.
On Friday at the Chromat fashion show, a curvy model walked the runway wearing a statement T-shirt that read "Sample Size."
After crossing Fashion Week off her bucket list, Glamour features editor Lauren Chan's big moment was almost ruined by negative personal attacks on Instagram.
Model Lauren Wasser’s career took a turn when in 2012 she lost part of her lower right leg due to complications from Toxic Shock Syndrome. But just a few years later, the 27-year-old is back on track. During New York Fashion Week, she made her runway debut for Chromat, strutting her stuff with a gold prosthetic on, wearing a black dress with neon lights. But while Wasser’s inclusion in the show was prodigious (for the designer and model both). the entire presentation was a futuristic feat, breaking barriers many have yet to even consider.
