You may remember that I recently wrote about Beth Ditto refusing a gig at Topshop's flagship store as they didn't cater for her size. It seems she struck a nerve as, although a link-up has yet to be confirmed, the singer declared she is currently talking to the clothes shop about a range.
'I'm in talks to do something with them at the moment,' she told London's The Sun. 'I love their stuff.'
New Look are currently refusing to comment so time will tell if anything will come of this. However, it's refreshing that the high street is finally taking the possiblity of plus size seriously and following the already rapidly growing online market with brands such as Curvety.com. Even if a massive icon is needed to push them in the right direction.
