â€œContributing to and enriching peopleâ€™s perception of what is chic and sexy- placing personality at centre stageâ€ -Elena Miro
For the last four years, one designer has consistently and constantly knocked down barriers and stereotypes of the perception on plus size beauty. At Milan Fashion Week, designer Elena Miro paves the way for true representation of beauty for the ‘Mediterranean-shaped’ woman (I like that!).
A/W 2008/2009, Spring 2009, and A/W 2009/2010 have been covered on The Curvy Fashionista, however this year, her presence on the catwalk is more poignant as she shows her collection on the heels of Mark Fastâ€™s debut and the news surrounding him. Below are images from her A/W 2010/2011 collection that are exquisitely sumptuous!
On the tip of the heated debate over plus size fashion, obesity, and body image and awareness, Miro told AFP, “The reasons for anorexia go much deeperâ€¦The important thing for the designer is to be able to present a different kind of beauty, both in marketing and in the media.â€ Preach!
Expressing her motivation with her line, Miro shares that Elena Miroâ€™s goal is “to “help real women to feel confident and at peace with themselves.” This is made evident with her pieces catering to a woman who is ” trendy, dynamic and well-informed, and has no intention of missing out on what fashion is offering in standard sizes. Product, distribution, research and communication have led to the creation of a real focal point for the “Mediterranean” style of woman.”
