This is MAJOR, considering the fact that for many years it has been rumored that while Kors has had a plus size line for many years, he has been shy about promoting it because of his hesitation at showing larger bodies as opposed to the standard size 0’s.
According to Business of Fashion, designers site sample sizes as the reason for not including different sizes on the runway:
“By contrast, Graham and Huffine this week were styled no differently from the rest of the models in each show. One of the biggest limits to diverse body shapes on the runway is the fact that many designers only make very small samples, meaning that only sample-size models can wear them. Kors and Gurung’s latest shows prove that they are making efforts to change this.”
