Here’s what this wild curvaceous woman wants to know of Vogue (a.k.a. Condé Nast, a.k.a. Jonathan Newhouse, chairman of Vogue publisher Condé Nast International): 1. Why only now, in 2012, did a health initiative decide to grace the pages of your (all Vogue editions) mag and the minds of your editors, photographers, designers etc.? 2. Does this [...]

How is the world of technology transforming retail? This seems to be a sexy topic. How would you feel if you never had to walk into a store again and you could do all your shopping needs (even trying on clothes and shoes) all with the simple clicks of a few buttons? What if your [...]

If you are like me, you are constantly searching the net for new and interesting fashion – from skirts, to shoes, to dresses, and even unique, but comfy yogini wear!
Occasionally, in the midst of my fashion pursuit, I come across fascinating news and that is exactly what happened to me today! While rummaging through plus size fashion links on reddit.com, my eyes gravitated to an article entitled: “Most runway models meet the BMI criteria for anorexia’, claims plus-size magazine in powerful comment on body image in the fashion industry.” When I read that title, I admit feeling a bit uneasy because if you are like me, you probably only heard about those three strange letters at a doctors office and forgotten them as soon as you left. Plus, I always associated those alphabetic spews with overweight issues, but here it was in black and white connected to anorexia.
Then it hit me, of course this makes perfect sense, this article is describing those skinny stick figures that we see toddling down the runway! I always knew that they looked unhealthy and could never imagine why designers want them parading in their attire or even why fashioners design for negative sizes anyway.
As I contemplated this a little further, I realized that not only is stick-skinny unhealthy and ugly on the runway, but it also poses a dire danger to the minds of women (of all ages) in our community. Everyday real women (including girls of single-digit ages) are brainwashed into thinking that skinny is sexy and that must be achieved at all costs. This is a fatal philosophy that has gone airbrushed for too long! I want to share this article with you in hopes that you will take it to heart and keep your soul, psyche, and shape healthy, no matter the stereotypes you find in the world of style – because remember there always will be a degree of deception in fashion! Our job is to look again!
