Plus-size women are seeing themselves represented in fashion by designers and retailers in ways unseen before.

Grace Dunham, sister of Lena Dunham, made her runway debut on Monday. The poet and actress, who will appear in Lena’s critically acclaimed show Girls on HBO this upcoming season, was chosen alongside a crew of professionals and non-models to show the brand’s dresses and tops with innovative cutouts, inventive silhouettes, and shirts and skirts using very thin fabric. Dunham was selected as one the lucky stars because she’s friends with designers Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, both Rhode Island School of Design alumnus.
