Marc Fast

This past week in London Marc Fast had a type of model we're not all that use to in NYC as of yet. The Curvy Girl Model. The fashion world has been constantly criticized for only having skinny twiggy type models for years. Is the fashion world ready for the change? Baby steps like the ones taken by Marc Fast are needed to start a ripple effect. Marc Fast had a mix of twiggy bodyframe models and curvy girls. Some may argue clothes look better on a thin tall model because the model works as a human hanger. In my opinion the runway shows should represent real everyday women. Real women have curves which are beautiful. Hopefully NYC can learn from Marc Fast's runway and try out having at least one curvy girl in their show. One is better than none it will make a difference.

i commented about this in elle chic blog.
i applaud him for what he has done.
a body con dress is difficult to wear.
our eyes have been trained to a certain industry standard.
i'm not saying right nor wrong, just what majority of the industry promotes.
my personal opinion is that dressing is made to enhance one's outer appearance ( we're not speaking inner beauty here)
that being said, these dresses look best on a toned, slim, curvy body.
the trick to wearing them well is not too much bust, hips or bum..and a flat stomach.
will the industry continue breaking rules for shorter models? and older models?
