Crystal Renn for Z Spoke
A couple of seasons ago backstage at BET’s Rip The Runway, I had a conversation with mega designer Zac Posen and asked him why he didn’t “do” plus sizes. He told me he loved the beauty of the full figured frame but could not create a line which included plus sizes because, “no one (retailers) would buy it.”
Posen may not yet be creating for the plus size fashionista but he included plus size supermodel Crystal Renn on the runway for his Spring 2011, “Z Spoke by Zac Posen” collection which debuted yesterday at NY Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
Kudos to Crystal and here’s hoping that Zac and other designers continue to incorporate plus models and consider the plus size consumer in their collections.
