Plus-size women in focus, in NY fashion week first
NEW YORK (AFP) - Full-figured women had their day on the catwalks of New York on Friday when hometown designer Eden Miller unveiled her plus-size collection - a fashion week first.
In the ultra-skinny fashion world, where angular models typically strut the runways, Miller dressed voluptuous models sporting sexy but glamorous looks from a colourful mini-collection.
With bold colours, large prints, a long dress with horizontal stripes, Miller said she did her collection "in a big way, I didn't want to be shy about it".
"I hope that I did well enough to open the doors for other people. I wanted to show beautiful, sexy women who own their bodies. I am not apologetic in any way."
