Project Runway contestant Ven had a hissy fit about having to design for a size 14 during last nights REAL SIZE challenge. He is quoted as saying she is not fashion forward and has no shape. I thought this was the job of a designer, to create a silhouette that the customer will love! Then again, why would he think that way when mainstream fashion continues to turn a blind eye to 65% of women in the US? Specialty brands and select designers that specialize in plus size fashion are selling to millions of women all over the world while others leave money on the table because it’s just not cool to design “big clothing”.
Ven, you need to look in the mirror honey; you are not exactly rocking a six pack. Terri (the real size model) dry those tears. You are FABULOUS!
