The future of fashion is inclusivity. There are historic numbers of curve models walking the runways at fashion week. We all know that designers love to embed messages of social activism, justice, and change into their collections. Many are continuing to use the runway as their personal platform to remind audience that real fashion has no label size.

Christian Siriano

Christian Siriano has a reputation for designing beautiful gowns for all shapes and sizes. The Project Runway star has also been honored by the CFDA for his relentless body positivity activism. Siriano’s metallic, futuristic Fall collection hit the runways displayed on women of different body types. The designer saved his closing number for outspoken curve model Ashley Graham.

Zendaya x Tommy Hilfiger

What Zendaya is doing for fashion is what Rihanna did for beauty with her makeup line. The debut of Zendaya x Tommy Hilfiger made waves in Paris bringing waves of celebratory and unconventional energy that the traditional fashion community never receives. Zendaya’s model rooster boosted 59 models all black and all of different sizes and ages – including a 70 year old Grace Jones who made her return to the runway to close out the show.
