Radio Interview - Celebrate Curves on the Catwalk

It is once again one of the most important weeks on the fashion calendar - London Fashion Week.

This week is undeniably unmissable for anyone with an interest in fashion & who can resist the lure of designer madness which ensues, removing you temporarily from the reality of high street fashion. This is always slightly marred for me though as the lack of acceptance of the curvier woman on the catwalk leaves a me feeling a little left out.

Malina from Curvety & Chantelle Znideric, a personal stylist from Top Stylista, have been out & about talking to local radio stations about how plus size fashion fits into the UK fashion scene. Chantelle handed out some fashion tips on how to dress your curves while I fought the corner of curvy women who are under represented in the world of fashion. Catch our interviews on local BBC & Heart stations as well as many others.

It seems that we arent the only ones who believe that London Fashion Week needs a little diversity - with fashion designer Mark Fast once again choosing to use "plus size" models to show off his collection. Some have called this a publicity stunt & maybe it is, but as Fast dares to be different and represent real women he has my vote!
