Wednesday in New York, the first-ever plus-size fashion show happened during New York Fashion Week.
The show was sponsored by OneStopPlus.com, and it was actually hard for us to get images — for some reason, they were not immediately available on Getty, the news agency we usually use. The PR company sent just a few (small) photos.
Still, it was exciting to see beautiful plus-size models having their moment in the spotlight. The clothes? Eh. A lot of the garments did not seem to fit properly.
Others just seemed like bad ideas. Is this faux denim???
Yes, ANTM enthusiasts, this is Toccara!

Oh: Niiki Blonsky, Gabourey Sidibe and Caroline Manzo were there!
In the end it's like this: I'm so glad it happened, I hope it happens again, the models looked gorgeous. But unlike some of the other designer shows during fashion week, I didn't see a single thing I dreamed of wearing. As a woman hoping for diversity at fashion week, I was happy. As a plus-sized shopper, I was disappointed.
