Introduction: Why is it Difficult to Find Plus Size Fashion Trends?

Most fashion houses have followed a simple formula for their plus size models – long, flowing hair, big waves and curls. They have not only maintained this aesthetic for years, but also turned it into a trend. It has been said that model diversity does not make an appearance in the fashion industry with every new season until recently. Now that is changing, designers are realizing the importance of fashion diversity along with social pressures and demands. The “influencer” factor plays a large role in what is trending in fashion. Many designers look to them for ideas of what will be the next big thing. For example, Fashion blogger GabiFresh has been considered a trendsetter for the past few years, showing off fashionable looks such as a baggy button down shirt cinched with a belt. Her style is something both the fashion industry and consumers can appreciate. Many of her styles are based on what she wears in her free time, which adds to their credibility and makes them more appealing to the public. The plus size fashion industry is just now starting to see how much of an impact the “influencers” can have on the greater scene and they are taking advantage of this opportunity.

How the Fashion Industry Has Changed over the Last 30 Years?

The fashion industry has changed somewhat over the last 30 years with the introduction of the internet and social media. In the past, it was not easy to follow fashion trends because designers were not able to distribute their collections online. With this technology, more information about what is trending in fashion is available than ever before. Now websites like ASOS and ASOS Curve allow people from all over the world to shop from stores that ship overseas as well. The fashion industry has expanded to the point where the majority of people can access it. Over the last decade, plus sized models have slowly but surely been making their way into the industry and they are now beginning to dominate.
This change has been met with some opposition. In the early 2000’s, there were some fashion designers that did not like the idea of having plus sized models as part of their line. They felt it would distract from the vintage feel they were going for and they also did not want to employ models that would make command more attention than the clothes themselves. This opinion has gradually changed, however, as more and more people started to use this type of model.
Plus sized models are typically thought of as being curvy. This is because designers have historically portrayed plus sized models as the opposite of thin, usually depicting them with a big bottom and not much in the way of a body. Fashion has since changed to picture curvy bodies that are made up of curves, not just straight lines, which is what plus sized models are known for.
The fashion industry is changing drastically as people everywhere use technology to watch what celebrities wear. Trends are being set by the stars and they are being copied by the fashion industry. For instance, Kendall Jenner has become known for wearing a larger bottom and tiny top that exposes her midriff. This look was quickly adopted by other models and is seen in many of the pictures that appear in magazines.
