First-Ever Plus-Sized Fashion Show!

Guest blogger Talitha Peters: Plus-sized models have never walked the same catwalk as size-0 ones ... until now. During the high-drama extravaganza that was New York Spring 2011 Fashion Week, the plus-sized brand "OneStopPlus" made its glamorous debut, presenting sizes 14 and above -- and the show wasn't without famous front-row faces. Oscar-nominated "Precious" star Gabourey Sidibe and plus-sized supermodel Emme were front and center as they watched history in the making.

Plus Size Fashion Show
Emme told People Magazine, "I think the big statement that's going to be made with this fashion show is not only going to be made within the full-figured community .... I think it's going to talk to the bottom line of design houses, designers and business people involved in fashion. Why don't we make [designer] clothes above a size 12? Why don't we load heavier in sizes 14, 16 and 18 in stores? Just change the buying style and let it be curve-friendly in the line."

Hear, hear! We moms can definitely relate when it comes to having a bootie or thighs that don't fit into a size 2. Maybe OneStopPlus' show is the start of a whole new wave in fashion!

How about size 20W and up? A size 12 is NOT a plus size.

I’ve organized several exhibitions on the Fashion Institute of Technologies in my previous years and am at the moment doing work on the forum for the business.
