When big-size models become the stars of Fashion Week
If we learned that Ashley Graham made the cover of Vogue US for its March 2017 issue, it was especially on the catwalks of the Fashion Week of New York that one could see the presence of large mannequins. Revolution in sight?
Would the mentality of the size of the models have really changed? A priori, we would like to say “yes”. At the Fashion Week fall-winter 2017-2018 which took place in New York, it is necessary to note that the diversity is necessary. Between the mix of mannequins, the thirty years on the catwalk or the models large sizes, one would almost believe a revolution. Almost. The tops plus size Ashley Graham and Candice Huffine shone by their presence on the catwalks, usually reserved for mannequins not more than a size 34. Michael Kors wanted to make the mark by making of Ashley Graham the star of his Show, while the big size model Candice Huffine parade for Prabal Gurung, Tome or Christian Siriano. A “standardization” which was already displayed on the cover of magazines but which still struggles to make itself known during the Fashion Weeks.
However, apart from Ashley Graham and Candice Huffine, the other models who parade flirt more with the 32-34 than with the 46. So we can talk about revolution when will have “normal” models, size 38, on the catwalk.
