Although summer is still in full effect, the fashion world is already months ahead. So of course the internet is buzzing with details surrounding September’s New York Fashion Week.
WWD recently reported that Torrid, a popular, plus-sized (for sixes 10 to 30) fast-fashion brand, will show at the prestigious event. While they are not the first-ever plus-sized brand to walk the runway, this is still a step in the right direction for the fickle fashion industry where inclusion is rarely sought.
“As a brand that is committed to helping all customers find her personal style, we at Torrid feel it is important to showcase the diversity of plus offerings on the most influential stage in fashion,” said Torrid CEO, Kay Hong in a recent statement. “Ultimately our objective is to show great fashion combined with body positivity and inclusivity.”
Full-figured women will strut their stuff down the runway for Torrid’s Spring 2018 collection preview that will take place on September 12 and showcase season trends ranging from edgy rock ‘n’ roll to romantic boho. The brand will also use this esteemed platform of New York Fashion Week to highlight finalists from their third annual model search competition.
