Today, a major milestone has occurred in the plus-size community. Independent plus-size designer Chubby Cartwheels launched the Fat Beats collection: a collection of pieces targeted towards plus-size women - and men. And even more wonderful is the models featured for the collection are a wide array of fat bodies: male; female; PoC models.
The collection was partially inspired by DJ, and Chubby Guy Swag founder, zacheser and his recent #FatBeats project. The goal for #FatBeats was to attract diversity in the dance music community and to invite individuals who didn’t fit the music industry’s idea of the “#EDM Fan” mold of cis/heteronormative/thin/white males to participate in the culture. He didn’t see fat kids DJ'ing or in the crowds - and he felt there was something inherently wrong with that.
The Fat Beats line is inspired by disco and the fabulous bodies of individuals in the plus-size community who defy our culture’s ideas of the “normal” lifestyle. So whether you’re on your way to a festival or to a club or you just want to look like a David Bowie-esque space cop with amazing hair, be sure to check out the first of hopefully many body positive clothing lines for men!
Here we go!!!!!!!! So I have been dying to get to New York!!! So when I had to go shopping to style a client I used it as the perfect excuse to do just that and was finally reunited with her beauty!!! It snowed like crazy thee entire time and was sub zero temperatures but I still had the time of my life!!
In this outfit
Denim on Denim! Many shy away from it but it can work!!! My only advice is be sure the two have enough differents in color so that it doesnt look like you were trying to match them but failed! A lighter denim paired with a darker denim says this was intentional!
