Plus Size Models Give Fast Show, London Fashion Week 2010

24 Feb

This is the second occasion that Mark Fast has created a storm at fashion week, and has re-opened the plus size models debate. His use of “curvy” models was relatively well received at London Fashion week. Last time, their was a staff walkout in protest. Also, in Sydney last year, Myer used plus sized models. Lucy Shropshall currently starring on America’s next top model is making a name for herself, and not because she is a size 14.
What chance do young aspiring girls have of loving their self image ? There is a responsibility for fashion designers to unite and agree on principle to a fairer policy on this.
Ralph Lauren who always likes to addi in his opinion on anything fashion related, fuelled the debate when he fired an “over-sized model” for being “too fat” . This should be the exception to the rule. Personally, these girls do more to show off the clothing than many other models I have seen during fashion week.

    I think what Mark Fast is doing is amazing, and will hopefully help a lot of girls out there to realise that bigger is beautiful too!
