New York Fashion Week Will Never Be The Same!
Torrid is in the business of producing clothing for sizes 10-30 and apparently they’re also in the history making business. According to WWD, they’ll join the ranks of Cabiria by Eden Miller and Addition Elle by conquering the runways of New York Fashion Week. Yes, you read that correctly. The brand responsible for bringing us our very own Star Wars Collection will showcase at the mother of all fashion shows. The runway show takes place on September 12th and it serves two purposes.
Torrid will preview its spring 2018 collection, featuring 40 looks representing key trends for the upcoming season, including edgy rock ‘n’ roll, romantic boho, hand embroidery and painted elements.
If that wasn’t enough, the catwalk will be a showcase for the brand’s third annual Model Search competition, serving as the semifinal competitive round for the top 10 finalists.
The plus size fashion industry keeps on knocking over boundaries. Year after year memorable moments are created on the runway and Torrid’s participation in NYFW is another milestone for the industry.
“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,” Kay Hong, chief executive officer of Torrid shared with WWD. “Ultimately our objective is to show great fashion combined with body positivity and inclusivity.”
