You can shop the winning looks for Episodes 1, 2, 6, and 10 immediately following the episodes and all pieces will be available in sizes XS to 5X. You can also shop the collection from last season’s winner Jhoan “Sebastian” Grey in up to size 5X as well here.
In looking at the size chart, the 5X translates to a plus size 30/32:

Founded in 2014, Nineteenth Amendment provides a manufacturing platform where all items are made in the US and orders can be fulfilled in six weeks or less. They create on-demand with no minimums so it’s also inventory free, which means no waste.
“Fashion as experience is kind of how we approach it. You can take this model and apply it in a very creative way to create a new type of retailing.”
This process challenges other brands to reevaluate their stance on expanding on sizing due to cost and we think this is the way of the future.
Better fit and less inventory, which means less waste and longer-lasting clothing.
With companies like Levi Strauss proposing technology approaches to customers getting better fitting clothing – CEO Chip Bergh told CNBC, “Everyone can do their own body scan on a camera.” — to companies like Adore Me installing 3D body scanners from Fit3D in their Chattanooga, Tennessee store, we’re seeing changes in the fashion industry which are going to change the future of fashion in an amazing way.
But for now, Nineteenth Amendment and Project Runway is changing how viewers shop by providing more accessibility to a customer segment that is not given the opportunity to shop the mainstream runway often.
While prices are not as low as fast fashion ones, viewers can invest in pieces they love, having the same options as straight size customers.
