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.

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.

It seems that most of the time, the clothes were plain too big for the models wearing them. You can belt a waistline, but you can't hide too-big necklines or armholes. Of course it all looks terrible. It was cut for actual plus-sized people, and they didn't seem to have any of those in stock.

The clothes themselves are meh. I've seen far worse, but I expected better from Fashion Week. Take your contempt for the average woman and shove it, fashion industry.
