On Sept. 6, 2013, fashion designer Eden Miller made history. For the first time ever at New York Fashion Week, an entire plus-size collection, modeled on plus-size models, walked down the runway. Never before had a designer who specialized in plus-size clothes, as Miller does with her line Cabiria, reached that level of success.
Yet two years later, the middling state of clothing for curvier women, not to mention their representation in fashion and media, hasn’t improved much. Miller told Mic in an interview ahead of Fashion Week, if we want actual change for plus-size shoppers, we’re training our focus on the wrong place.
