20 Amazing Moments from #NYFW that proves #Plussizegirlsrock!

Do you know what has been soo freaking amazing theses past two weeks? The representation of plus size women during New York Fashion Week. Team Plus Size has been showing up and showing out during all the NYFW festivities. Gurl!!! I’m talking about taking over the streets of NYC with impromptu photo shoots, displaying killer street style, and slaying the runway. Just the mention of the plus size model sightings throughout the past two weeks has sent my heart into flutters. From the Ashley Nell Tiptop runway show for her new line at JCPenney to a celebration of curves with Christian Sirano Spring 2017 collection featuring not one or two , but five plus size models! Seriously I have been in the mist of many emotions from all this greatness going on.

Finally, young women are seeing real women with meat on their bodies tearing up the runway, images far from the iconic “Super Models” I grew up viewing. I remember I would watch Fashion TV and feel so sad because I never saw anyone like me on the runway. I hated how this feeling of shame unfortunately stayed with me for such a long time. It really wasn’t until I saw plus size images of comedian, Monique and plus size model, Emme did I feel differently. I knew then there were women out there in fashion beyond size zero!

This is the message I hope many young women take in from this post as I share

Blogger and Plus Size Model, Nadia Aboulhosn showing her collection from AdditionElle.com.

Today was surreal and the first time I saw my designs walk down a #NYFW runway. I had a mini breakdown in the bathroom with my best friend trying to hold back tears from it all. Thank you so much to @additionelle. It’s always so great designing for you. Congrats to @theashleygraham! This is one of my pieces from my Fall collection. The models wearing all my pieces were stunning and did such a great job. Appreciate all the love and support from all of you who follow me. You help me achieve my dreams every day and I hope I can always deliver you the best. It sometimes feels like I take small steps but today was a stride and milestone for my career. Forever grateful to all of you and especially @additionelle. #nadiaxadditionelle

Thank you to everyone one for their love and support. I was excited and nervous to take part in @maisonthefaux presentation! Thank YOU everyone!! ” “CHUBBY CHASER” is a never ending desire for more, more, more. In the insanely strange world of fashion, fashion houses act as godlike institutions; telling us how to look, act and who we should be. Fashion seems to be a repeating ritual of brands overfeeding us.” #MAISONtheFAUX. #CHUBBYCHASER #MADEFW photography by @teampeterstigter #nyfw2016 #nyfw #imblessed #fashionshow #madefw #madenewyork #fashion #fashionphotography #milkstudios #chubbychaser #plussize #purebodylove #curves #nyc #plusizemodel #curvy #bbbg #bigandproud #wewearwhatwewant #celebratemysize #PLUSModelMag #selflove #BodyPositive #effyourbeautystandards #locs #naturalhair #daretowear
