This is an interesting campaign started by two plus-size models. They are calling for the fashion industry to take concrete steps to rethink dress sizes. (Thanks to Kimberly for the tip!) From the Walk the Catwalk web site:
Diane Pellini and Liis Windischmann have a combined 20 years experience modeling in the plus-size fashion world…Immense change cannot happen overnight and Diane and Liis know this. “Walk the Catwalk” is a simple solution to start reducing the gap between the “straight” size fashion world and the “curvy” fashion world, to start counting all sizes in. They believe that implementing rules and regulations is not the solution to this problem. Solutions are currently being offered to change fashion at the end of its process – this pair aims to prove that change needs to come from fashion’s foundation by changing the very philosophies that have helped create it.
Here’s the video they’ve made in support of the campaign:
