I read this article a little while ago, so I am certain this won’t be “breaking news” for most of you. Never the less, it has hit a cord with me personally. I am not a Tim Gunn fan, until now. Not because I disliked him in anyways, but because I gave him none of my spare time. Here’s a news flash for you, I don’t watch Project Runway nor do I watch his show “Guide to Style” on Bravo. Is that weird, that I don’t watch these two uber poplar fashion-dedicated shows? I do however know Time Gunn as the voice of Baileywick in Sofia the First, and think he does a smashing job. *spoken like a true mother*
While reading the article on Huffington Post, I felt myself wanting to burst out a “HELL YEAH”. Finally! Someone has said it, someone with a voice in the fashion world, who might actually be able to make some movement on the subject. Mr. Gunn, thank you. Thank you for standing up for curvy woman everywhere.
When I’m working in the real world with real women and we’re shopping, we find that fashion seems to end when you get any larger than a size 12,” Gunn told The Huffington Post. “How ridiculous is that?
Now hear me out, I know Tim is not the first one to bring this issue to light, nor will he be the last, but he is someone that can make waves with his words, and for this reason I am excited. Excited for what is ahead in the fashion world for woman with a double digit waistline . This means far more than just a fabulous fitting pair of jeans, or a smooth curvy silhouette lovelies. I see this more as a step towards woman beginning to accept and love the skin they are in. Rather than hide or curse the curves they were given, they will look at them as an asset.
What do you think? Do you agree with Tim; does style after size 12 go downhill?
