On pages 62-63 you will find a sharply dressed Ashley in a model like pose talking about her struggles with weight and how she wants to become a fashion stylist. She also offers tips on finding the best jeans for a curvy body. From what I understand she will be featuring items that cater to all sizes.
There must be something in the water because lately a couple of fashion magazines have been featuring plus size models and plus size fashion. The November issue of Glamour featured top plus size models. All I can say is keep up the good work.
It has always been my dream to own my own fashion magazine and that was because I could never understand why magazines would never incorporate fashion for all sizes. Yes, there are magazines strictly for plus sized women, but, I never thought that plus size women should be separated from from women who are below a size 14. Although a plus size body is different than a non plus sized body, as women, we still can relate to bodily insecurities no matter what size we are.
I always wanted to open up a fashion magazine and see a fabulous dress that came in sizes 2-22. Even in 2009 magazines still fail to feature plus size designers or designers who carry misses and plus size clothes. I think plus size women want to feel incuded in fashion and not separate from it.
