Size 12 model Crystal Renn was recently in town for the Joe Fresh Style LG Fashion Week show and it caused quite a stir. She opened the show. She closed the show. She was touted in the press release before the show. Interesting.
(Note: Hey Joe – love your generous straight sizing but plus-sizes coming soon? Pretty please?)
I have been fascinated with the press and coverage following her appearance. This show (other than charity ones) was the first one in which I have seen a model get rounds of applause – often times an outfit is cheered but rarely, especially in Toronto, is a model greeted with clapping. This speaks volumes of the shifting perceptions in the fashion industry.
I love the fact that a larger model’s photo & story was splashed across the world’s newspapers and magazines. Or the fact that her presence allowed great beauty & hair stories to be written featuring a curvy model
