City Chic is an Australian chain store which carries plus-size fashion, and put on a fashion show in Sydney today. In an interview with the Courier-Mail, model Courtney Maxwell explains:

"The average Australian woman is a size 14, so it's great we are being represented on the runway." Apparently the chain has gone from one store to 48 in five years and plans to expand to 80 during the next year. Click through the gallery for a playful catwalk full of lovely ladies!

Even though I'm not a fan of Ed Hardy crap, props to him (or someone) for making it in plus sizes.

Yowza! I wish I had this dress, and somewhere to go, right now. Which is what fashion should do.

Yet! Sometimes, it makes you want to puke. Begone, pleated acid wash. I rebuke you.

Don't you love behind-the-scenes photos? Those curls are somewhere between architecture and sculpture.

Grace under pressure? Can't be easy to have your hair pulled and tugged into someone else's "vision."

Still, doesn't it seem like everyone had a blast?
