In less than a week’s time, six articles from an eclectic mix of news genres have seem to turn a direct eye on the existence, acceptance, disdain, and concern of plus size fashion; each offering their own take, understanding or definition of just what plus size fashion seems to be- a trend or reality.
Last week, we heard Australia’s Next Top Model Judge swear the plus size model industry is non-existent, the week before, we addressed what the newspapers called us in jest– a fad or a comeback. However, the latest round of coverage about plus size fashion seems to be a bit more pointed, as now experts are trying to weigh in on just what is happening here, I feel like a science experiment, reading how they are dissecting and prodding at our achievements made thus far.
Without further ado, please make sure you read through these all interesting and thought provoking stories- come back, and share your thoughts!
