Here are a few questions that have been on my mind since forever. Why does fashion exist? My answer is mostly for us women and a few fashionable men. Then why is fashion still not completely inclusive even after so many years of its inception? Did you know fashion branding had started in the 19th century with Charles Frederick Worth who from 1858 was the first designer to have his label sewn into the garments? Did he have any size charts in mind? Unfortunately, even now many worshipped luxury fashion brands fail to be inclusive and makes lines for women, just women not a particularly-sized woman, but for all. Dolce & Gabbana’s move to become the first luxury fashion house to extend its size range surely comes as a pleasant surprise. Better late than never right? Though it is known that the brand has always been in love with feminine sensuality in all its forms from the beginning, it was time that they out these feelings into effective actions. Good news is Dolce & Gabbana has extended the size offering with the Pre-fall 2019 collection making different iconic styles available in larger sizes 52 + 54 (US sizes 16 + 18).
Personally, I love the fact that women who run and rule the world of fashion as consumers get what they desire now irrespective of their size. This is how it should be, the consumer demands and the brand supplies. Gone are the days when women reduced themselves into unhealthy sizes to fit into whatever the designer labels offered. It’s time to show them all who is boss! This wave of body positivity has started to drown the age-old notions. We will eat our burgers wearing our Dolce & Gabbana’s and there’s nothing anyone can do or say about it. Period!
