Why Plus-Size Models on the Runway Matter

When the news of plus models walking the runway during New York Fashion Week hit social media, it seemed like the internet exploded for a moment. Everyone had an opinion about it.

Rocking Latino Fashion Week with the Tu Vida App

Disclosure: This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and the TuVida App.

When it comes to Latinos in fashion, you can’t help but think of designers like Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, or even Isabel Toledo. They may be the biggest names in fashion today, but do you ever think about how they got their start? This is why I love events like Latino Fashion Week (LFW). They are created to introduce us to emerging and talented Latino designers. Fresh off their Dallas show, LFW came to Los Angeles! I was invited on behalf of the new Tu Vida app, to check out and share my experience.

The Lane Bryant “Revolution”

Where do I even start? First of all, I want to thank Lane Bryant for the VIP pass to The Curvy Revolution. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t have had such an amazing experience. On the final day of the convention, I finally ran into NettaP, one of my favorite bloggers. Love that girl! Then after getting lost, I attended a Lane Bryant panel session with the VP of Marketing, Jay Dunn. It was a very informative look into the world of Lane Bryant. Mr. Dunn made sure to remind us that it’s not about age, but about your attitude.…

In fact, according to many news sources, Miro was knocked off of Milan”s Fashion Week calender.Why is the “fashion world” so afraid of women with real curves and real bodies?
