International plus size news!
This weekend full figured women will model during the Plus Size Fashion Weekend in Kuzminki park in Russia.
To prepare for the event, models who were a size 48 or larger were invited to audition and were chosen to wear clothing created by the top plus size fashion designers in Russia.
One model in particular wanted to audition because she didn’t like how the fashion industry ignored plus size women. “I felt that the assumptions about us were untrue and I wanted to show that beauty does not depend on size and that all women have the right to look beautiful,” shared Natalya Markova.
The event is sponsored by Viber Public Chats and it takes place on March 8, 2015.
