The cover and the story with Ashley Graham in Vogue UK has cost much more than you think. The editor in Chief of the magazine, Alexandra Shulman, could not find more than a single fashion brand wishing to dress up one of the most recognized large sizes world-wide models. In this letter, Alexandra shows his frustration because many brands have refused to let them clothes to wear to a size XL.
If Vogue, with the media that has, in a photo shoot with someone so well known power as Patrick Demarchelier, is not able to find nice clothes for a size 48, what awaits us to the rest of women? Only Coach and its creative director Stuart Vevers They volunteered to find everything you need for that Ashley Graham show all their beauty and style of the garments that had been. The model of large sizes not afraid of nothing, and it is normal to see her on the red carpet with transparencies and skintight dresses.
Much is about diversity of beauty, acceptance by the body itself, and when it comes to the truth, when fashion magazines put hands to work, all are obstacles. Showrooms usually have a sample of size 36, and it is difficult to find something out there at the last minute, but If Coach could make clothes why not other brands did the effort to search?
So it is not surprising that the curvy models remain in something anecdotal, and not advance towards a true representation of all the silhouettes and measures in the world of fashion.
