That threw the "fat-shionistas" (their term, not ours) blogosphere into a tailspin.
While the NYT piece did introduce us to plus-size musician Beth Ditto's triumph over the fashion industry -- she has designed a line for Topshop -- it didn't do much for the genre as a whole, or so the women thought.
In what we're assuming was a response to the NYT, TheDailyBeast posted an article yesterday, offering more insight from the women who love their bodies and their fashion.
And it sounds like plus-size women are looking for even more: Full-Figured Fashion Weekend hits New York City this weekend. The three-day event is a response to the twice-annual New York Fashion Week, which blatantly holds size-zero models on high.
The message must finally be sinking in, as British Vogue's editor lashed out at designers for forcing fashion magazines to hire rail-thin models to fit their shrinking samples.
While Full-Figured Fashion Weekend is a step in the right direction, it doesn't seem to be taking off as successfully as traditional fashion festivities.
It appears that high-fashion's plus-size models -- such as Crystal Renn and Mia Tyler -- won't be working or attending the event.
