LFW Drama

London fashion was as star studded as ever this year with Boy George, Alexa Chung, Yasmin Le Bon and Girls Aloud members Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts all in attendance. But this fabulous fashion event has yet again been cast into controversy. I am of course talking about the events surrounding the use of “plus size” models for the Mark Fast show.
The papers have turned it into a full scale, handbags at dawn, cat fight between designer and stylist and as a result, thrusting the issue of “size zero” models back into the headlines.
The use of “average-size” models is something we should acknowledge and celebrated. Within the fashion world there will always be differences of opinion regarding the use of larger models. The highlighting of the issues behind the scenes should have not become “the story”.
