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.
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!
