What if plus size model models are not only the future of fashion but of the future for fashion?
That is the question posed by fashion icon and author Mimi Rogers, who has been following the movement and how it has been embraced and embraced by women of color.
Rogers, author of the upcoming book All of the Colors, recently spoke with HuffPost Live host and editor-in-chief Amanda Terkel about the topic.
Here are a few excerpts:You’ve been a longtime fan of plus size modeling and I’ve been following you closely, and I really love how you see plus size fashion in the current landscape, and it’s really exciting to be a part of it.
So, you were really excited about being a part?
I’m really happy for you because you are an incredible voice for plus size and a very good example of what plus size means in fashion.
You’ve been talking a lot about it in your work and you’re a model, but you’ve also been a fashion designer, and what do you think are the implications of the plus-size fashion model being a fashion model and being an artist?
I think that the models and the models are really inextricably linked.
I think plus size is the most powerful, inclusive, and inclusive way for people of color to feel included.
It gives you an opportunity to be seen, and you have to be beautiful to be appreciated.
You’re not a model just to be photographed or for fashion.
I mean, I know a lot of people are like, “Oh, well, that’s OK.
You can’t be an artist.”
That’s not OK.
We don’t need to be an art form just to have our body.
It’s not like being in the industry.
You need to do your job.
You have to make a living.
You just need to look good.
You don’t have to work for $5 an hour.
And you don’t want to work in fashion just to make money.
You work for your dignity.
You get paid for your labor, and then you make money and you don,t feel like it.
And I think we have to look at this as being the next frontier.
You know, this is really important to me because I have to wear a skirt in my work.
I have a dress.
I’ve never been a model.
But I do think plus-sized fashion has an impact in terms of the way that people of all sizes feel comfortable in fashion and in society, and that it’s important to make it inclusive and to create opportunities for people like you.
So how do you see this growing in the fashion world?
I know that you’re involved in a lot more of the movement, but what’s it like for you and your fellow designers to be part of this movement and to see how it’s changing the way the world looks at size?
It’s really a wonderful thing, because you’re so connected to your models, and for me, I’ve always been a little bit of an artist.
I like to make things that I see in my life, but I don’t always have the tools to do that.
I don,’t really have the time to do it.
Plus-size models are incredibly smart and creative.
You see this and it just seems to go in a different direction every time.
They’re just so talented and they have a voice, and so do I. So I think you’re seeing more of a shift in fashion where plus-Size fashion is being used in a positive way.
I’ve always had a thing for big people.
I grew up in the suburbs and I never had the luxury of living in the big city.
I never really had that luxury.
I always felt like I had to be very small, and when I went to the mall, I had that mentality.
I felt like, Oh, I’m so big, I can’t fit in.
I’m too big.
And then I got the plus sizes and I saw, Wow, I don.t have that kind of mentality.
So when I see that change and when the plus sized model is being seen as something that is positive and not just a bad stereotype, I think it’s going to change things for the better.
I just think the fashion industry is really going to start to shift towards more of an inclusive, inclusive and inclusive fashion.
That’s why I feel so strongly about it.
I think plus Size is such a positive message and it really has such a impact in the way people of different sizes feel included in fashion because I think there’s such a stigma around being a plus size.
I see so many people that look like me who are in the plus model world are like “Oh!
I’m fat, I shouldn’t be in the model world.”
And I see them all the time and I don?t see that.
So there are a lot people who are like
