Tim Gunn speaks out for plus size fashion
Tim Gunn The Project Runway Style Guru who is the former head of design at Parson’s school of design, has taken a rare stance and siding with the plus community. In an interview with Marie Claire Tim Gunn said: “Have you seen most of the plus-size sections out there? It’s horrifying. Whoever’s designing for plus-size doesn’t get it. The entire garment needs to be reconceived. You can’t just take a size 8 and make it larger.” It’s so refreshing to see someone with so much clout, and such a respected opinion speak out against what’s happening in the fashion industry. However, I must confess that I don’t feel at much of a loss because I know amazing plus size designers but they don’t get as much respect as they deserve. I’m hoping that this will change.
