Rewriting the Rules on Plus-Size Fashion: Dismantling the Acceptable Plus Body and Other Ideals.
As the push for fashion to become more size-inclusive intensifies, a new ideal has formed: the “perfect plus,” acceptable fat body. For true representation to be reached, we must rewrite the story to include all people across the body spectrum. For too long, only one type of plus-size has been deemed worthy, those who fit a size 12/14, who have no double chins, and who possess a flat stomach. But once again, this is another unattainable ideal. This panel will bring together leading advocates within the plus-size fashion community to dismantle these norms and show how designers, brands, and all of us can be truly, authentically inclusive.
