NYFW body positive shows: exactly what the industry needs

Trends presented in runaways are not only extended to fashion but to behaviour, politics and society. For this reason, brands that promote diversity and body positivity are ahead in the curve and do one good favour for the society. But more than that, they play the right role in fashion – to guide society towards a future of acceptance, equality and inclusion.

Several brands are using the hype of feminism and body positivity “online zeitgeist” in their shows and clothes for instance. But we all know that the issue requires more than Tshirts and diverse casting for the shows. If they are doing their homework and keeping it real outside the runaways, it remains to be seen, but

Christian Siriano has become as synonymous with inclusivity has he is with jaw-dropping evening wear. Once again, the designer showed the entire fashion industry what a truly inclusive runway looks like at his fall ’17 show.

At the Grand Ballroom at the Plaza Hotel, Siriano presented a range of lacquered velvet sets, animal-printed party dresses, and dreamy ball gowns on an equally diverse set of models — diverse in race, in size, and in industry experience. The lineup included women ranging from size 2 to 16, according to Cosmopolitan.

A good 2017, in eight steps

I was trying to remember the promises I made last year to see if I had met the goals and if I was going on the path of my biggest plans in life.

Look ( & blogger life) Plus Size

Fashion is different of style. Fashion is designed, it is a fad. Style is individual expression, is art, almost like it is born with you. In times of excess, superficiality and so much waste, it is important to keep this idea in mind. Times like nowadays make me to question so much how I relate to fashion. Even my work with this blog. What makes me to keep going is to know from you guys how helpful it is to have someone channelling beauty and style beyond size. The feedbacks on how I have been positivelly promoting a break free from beauty standards gets me such a rewarding feeling.
