Post Says Size Matters

The year in fashion is wonderfully summed up in today’s Washington Post by staff writer Robin Givhan.  The article, Best of 2010:  Fashion, covers the all the big moments and movements in fashion.  Most notable?  The fact that size matters.  Here’s a taste:

This was the year in which size mattered. A vigorous debate erupted over what it means to be plus size. How big is too big? What exactly is big enough? At the second  Full-Figure Fashion Week in New York, plus size women demanded trends and high style and took aim at a design industry obsessed with making them look thinner. Actress Gabourey Sidibe settled into life as a fashion cover girl. Designer Jean Paul Gaultier used extremes in size – from the fat girl to the waif – as inspiration for his spring 2011 collection. And Vogue Italia launched a Web site dedicated to curvy women. Chubby ladies didn’t rule the runway, but they were no longer ignored.

Curvy girls everywhere are hoping the big buzz carries over into 2011 and beyond.  For more on this, revisit little blog’s Please Say It’s So So So.

    Sure hope the designers come through this season. I’d love to see something smart and stylish in a plus size.
